These type of emails are to be ignored. Take down the image and go silent on them. The amount they seek, even if they are legitimately acting for the copyright owner, is extortionate. Sometime they quote photo journalist rates which are far higher rates than you would pay for a stock photo for use on a website. However that apart, just ignore it. They will send more threats. Do not respond even if you are tempted to do so. They operate on the basis that some folk will pay up and others won’t. If you respond it will just encourage them. If you don’t they will eventually go away. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited by JustAnswer for my time.
