Most of us are inspired by images that other photographers have taken, and indeed isn't that why most of us became photographers ourselves?. Nemesis correctly points out that copyright infringements occur when someone actually uses an image that another photographer has taken and passes it of as their own. You are in no danger of stepping on anyone's toes just by choosing to be inspired by the way someone else has captured a particular scene, so have no fears and enter you image, and all the best.
