Seeking the photographer. Really. I want to ask you a question.

I've read through the AskMe archives, and I didn't really find an answer to my question. We found a photo on Flickr that we want to use as a banner on the site for our new production of a play that is in the public domain. I've mocked up the banner and tried to contact the owner of the photo. . . but what if she doesn't contact us back?

We haven't changed the photo other than to crop it. In the message I sent to her, I told her that we're totally nonprofit (hell, we pay for everything out of our pockets at this point) and that we'd link back to her photo at Flickr. Hell, I'd link to her personal site if she wanted, but I can't get a response. I've made a good faith effort here. . . would it be totally unethical to use the image and link back to the Flickr image? We really have no nefarious or lucrative intent. We just want a pretty picture.
