Depends how small. If you're using the portrait graphic say, for a background object in a photo frame in a living room, that's ok.
but If it's a key background element and you're literally just ripping that pic for it, it won't score good in a judge's book.
If you're in it to win it, challenge yourself to do your piece completely original and free of copy pasta is what I say.
