  1. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    And what is the subject, might we all ask?
  2. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    Another bulk discount rated image this morning. The action in the image kind of illustrates my feeling towards the value!
  3. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    I would have needed a very tall ladder to get that shot!
  4. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    Mmm, just had this one come in for the lowest I've ever sold for I think Certainly not flying high. Any other value related flying terms might not sadly be appropriate here in the UK at the moment
  5. Well in that case, one that I found via GIS of a zoom but oddly credited as 'Getty/PH' (the left image): https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/687366/London-Bridge-terror-operation-Metropolitan-British-Transport-Police-Project-Servator Should I feel honoured to be mistaken for Getty?
  6. Getting images noticed

    Same here, of London subjects. [DT] - Date Taken - is a frequent search suffix so it's always worth a punt if you're in town and passing by with favourable weather, or, topically, extreme weather
  7. Good taste and photojournlism

    Seeing mention of social media. You've got an image there which illustrates the scene well without details that might cause offence, and would pass through the hands of at least one decision maker before publication. Chances are somebody passing by with a mobile phone wouldn't have thought twice about taking a more graphic image and bypassing any ethics before sticking it out there for all to see.
  8. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    A small value (distro?) sale has just popped in which is one of my earliest images uploaded (roughly number 55 in my port). Nice to know that they can still sell. Small positives
  9. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    From the reactions I'd guess using a monopod as a pole, whilst wearing a mankini?
  10. Quiet out there

    Just one sale up until the twelfth of the month had me very worried, but four have followed in two days. Still likely to be down on December and January which were positive months. February was a low month, and if March follows suit then it will definitely knock my confidence.
  11. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    Sold today a bit of a throw away image that went from live news to stock of a woman that had been swimming in the sea during 'Storm Brian'. Moral: Keep everything?
  12. can't add location

    This evening's location is Cameroon. In recent weeks Google Maps seems to only work office hours in the UK (I need to find out with which union they are affiliated), so during any evening work it takes me on a World tour - most frequently the States. It lets me enter and save a correct manually-entered location, but I guess should the map facility ever become an actual function that the location won't be correctly registered.
  13. Do You Shoot Street Art and Murals?

    If the 'artist' comes forward they'll have to weigh up the benefits between copyright or police evidence!
  14. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    Two sales in today, making just three for the month so far. Relieved to learn that the early starts during 'The Beast' have resulted in at least one sale:
  15. Zooms?

    Have you looked to see whether there are multiple zooms on the same images, which may have been a single zoom yesterday?
  16. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    A repeat seller, but first of the month:
  17. Images Sold in March (Max. 1 per day

    Pointless TV programme?
  18. GIS isn't working for me at the moment. Every image comes up as 'stock photography' with infinite pages of results, so I tried changing that to Alamy (leaving the image link in the search bar) and it led me to a page where that image was showing as a 'similar image'. Hardly ideal!

  20. I throw greenies at people who go to the trouble of searching out found images, and I guess a few others do too.
  21. ?¿ src-img plugin doesn't work anymore

    I'm having the same issues with it again. Just me?
  22. February over already?

    Ten for $655 (thus far!). Bit of an odd month. One sale $400, five low value web uses, just one PU (unusually low for me) and the balance book uses around $60. Zooms average.
  23. February over already?

    23 September 2017. http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/15553391.Paddle_steamer_Waverley_draws_the_crowds_on_first_voyage_since_bump/
  24. February over already?

    Having been told that some overdue sales would be included in February I chased them up as still unreported to be told: "The month of February finished yesterday and due to the shorter length of the month the team have not long received the usage report so these uses haven’t been billed yet. The sales should appear within your account early this month." So no, February isn't over already!
  25. Have you found any Alamy images Feb 2018

    It's good to see some Alamy Live News successes today (though sadly none of mine :-( ). Having been out and uploading 'Beast' shots since 6am yesterday morning I scanned through the web news pages yesterday evening and was a little concerned at the lack of Alamy images. I did wonder if there was some kind of access or costing issue. Still, walking for miles in thick snow keeps one fit, if not wealthy.
