Question of using images under the "Fair use" clause.

Normally I grab my pictures from a photodumb that has free pictures that allow you to post their pictures (provided you site the source), but recently I was writing an article and thinking that the National Geographic picture of "Afgan Girl" would be perfect. The article isn't about anything related to afgan girl besides the quality of the picture it'self. The hauntingly pretty eyes, the foreshadowing of a difficult life yet still a fire that burns behind her eyes...good picture. Of course I would site the source of the picture.But can I use?

This question is closed to new answers.

    If you're concerned about being able to use that specific image, you can always contact National Geographic for permission. Depending on the content of your article, they may let you use it. Can't hurt to ask.
