Find this string in your timthumb.php:

// external domains that are allowed to be displayed on your website
$allowedSites = array (
	'flickr.com',
	'picasa.com',
	'blogger.com',
	'wordpress.com',
	'img.youtube.com',
);

And add the site you are trying to display images from to the list, then save and relaunch.
