Models dispatching to Services

I was wondering what the best practice for the below situation would be.

In my application a button updates a url via swfaddress. The url is then parsed in a service to get a variable from the url which is the id of an image. This information is put into a model (other parts of the application will use this information). The id needs to be queried in a database to retrieve the image's information for loading into a view.

What I'm wondering is what's the best way to approach this? Would it be wise to have the model talk to another service to query the db or should the mediator for the view that will receive the loaded image ask the service to query the db and then have the service update the model which will then dispatch a notification with the image information in a payload for the view.

    Of course there would be a command to go between the model and service in the first scenario.
