I would ask for $300.00 and try hard to get that. If they want to go down, do not let them go under $200.00...I think thats good but then again I have been told I go a bit lower than what others would do...
They have asked if they can use the shot...or a shot from one of the two slides...on the cover of their company magazine sometime soon...and they need to see the slides to gauge quality...after which they will pay and/or return slides.
I have all related emails...with their addresses...with attached shot...and the shot has been on airliners for a long time now...given it would not be a disaster if I lost the slides...how else do you think I might have handled this without scaring them off?
BTW - I held off sending the slides until their third approach...so they must be keen...

Given that you uploaded the picture last july, that you have all the correspondance, and possibly have a high-res copy of the scan on your PC, I think you could probably prove to a judge's satisfaction that it is your picture.
But it is a bit risky. If they DO misuse the photo without paying, and don't send the picture back, the burden of proof is on you to prove ownership.
But then again, nothing risked, nothing gained. If you lose, you've lost maybe a dollar. If you win, you've made yourself maybe a few hundred. Those are betting odds if you ask me.
