Me too John and of a pic taken on your patch.
I guess yours is a local pic too?

The other times (3) I've hit 4 figures the usage has been Telecoms.

Steven, yes, it's a local shot, one of only 2 on Alamy and they are both mine!

 

Good luck to you for taking a pic on my(!) patch - I thought i'd got them all covered!!

 

John.

I had a (textbook) sale for $250 last month.  This was my highest price since October 2011.  It was an egg frying in a pan.  There are about 1900 images of this subject, but that discerning buyer liked mine.

 

Alamy often gives me surprises, many of them good.

I have had a few sales between $150 and $300 in the last couple of months and then this morning one for nearly $1200. So things have definitely been looking up and made up for the lower value sales.

I dont know what is happening but yesterday John reported a four figure sale ...... today Graham and next to that a report on tweeter of a Alamy four figure sale.

 

Looks like somebody is getting away of his overdue money.

One coming tomorrow for $180.  The second time for this relatively new (shot in the last year) image.  Incidentally, shot with my RX100 using it as a stealth camera.  :o

I think I need to revisit that venue and get another one, which will, of course, not look like the first, but have the same interesting subject matter.

I have sold this image for a greeting card. I always thought it was perfect for that use. I'd love to see it, of course, so I hope someone spots it.

Thank you. Those bears are brother and sister and still young enough to want to play with each other. This was during a bout of play fighting.

Funny the things that give pleasure when looking at My Alamy. Yesterday I had a zoom which was the only zoom and indeed the only image for that search. Hope it leads to a sale. :)

very good - right moment right time shots.

 

i had a similar one once, watching car racing, high speed burst on, filling up card fast! then a crash happened right in front of me, and i snapped away, frame by frame and got some good shots (im convinced to this day, that i flinched out of fright and held the shutter by accident!), results in some good sales elsewhere.

heart stopping stuff though, my friend was shook up seeing the carnage happen so close!

 

I have a PPL, ( private pilot license).  flying on a commission in the North sea, shooting one giant oil-rig, possibly the biggest in the world. All of a sudden there are these giant whales surfacing beneath us, incredible sights!

I asked my pal to take over and started to shoot like mad. I am far from a wildlife photographer but of all the pics I took in the panic, at least I got a dozen sharp ones, one classic with the giant tale-fin splashing down in the water. 

This happend in February and it was freezing cold and I mean freezing.

The experience alone, well I never forget it!
