  1. Favourite images uploaded - Feb 2018

    This one looks maybe a tad dark, but all the same it's a beautiful shot. Hope it sells.
  2. Favourite images uploaded - Jan 2018

    Holy cr*p But well captured.
  3. Images Sold in January (max one per day)

    Haha thanks
  4. Images Sold in January (max one per day)

    One of three sales that dropped in today, all for decent money by today's standards. This shot is the one that sold for the lowest amount, but it's my favourite of the three
  5. Camera Died

    You have to read the small print, unfortunately. The key bit is this: The legal guarantee covers any defects presumed to have existed at the time of delivery and which become apparent within a period of two years. However, the crucial time period here is the six months following purchase: Any fault that appears within six months will be presumed to have existed at the time of delivery. The seller must then repair or replace your phone free of charge - or reimburse you if repairs or replacement are impossible. After six months, you can still hold the seller responsible for any defects during the full two-year guarantee period. However, if the seller contests this, you must be able to prove that the defect existed at the time of delivery. This is often difficult, and you will probably have to involve a technical expert. (https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/consumers/shopping/guarantees-returns/faq/index_en.htm) In short, the 24-month warranty is really a 6-month warranty. This is an excellent example of how something can be talked up to make it seem more than it is.

    Sold to a German language magazine for $34. An encouraging start to the new year.
  7. CTR

    CTR is Alamy's incentive to photographers not to spam-tag images. Spamming brings up irrelevant images in searches, which will not get zoomed, so your CTR drops. CTR keeps down the number of irrelevant images that turn up in searches.
  8. are your time exposures BRANDED ? ? ?

    How would you "brand" a night shot? Night shooting for me is no different from daytime shooting. You get the best shot you can but very often what and how you shoot is dictated by the subject and the situation. I agree a blue sky is better than a black one, but sometimes you don't have a choice:
  9. What is Your New Year's Resolution

    Spend less time on stock and more time shooting for fun with my little Sony HX90V.
  10. People and Property releases

    I think the book would count as editorial even without the connection to the New Yorker.
  11. Strange algorithm.

    Perhaps you're not familiar with the expression Betty used. It simply means that there's no need to ask questions when good fortune comes your way. I'm constantly surprised at how helpful many people on this forum are and Betty is among the most helpful.
  12. Dangers of photography

    If a politician had fallen on his face outside Downing Street they'd have been all over him in a flash ... what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, or so I'd have thought
  13. November Challenge :: Winner

    Congratulations Michael
  14. Does it have to be editorial?

    Seems to me, if antagonistic campaigns are allowed, then they cannot considered trademark infringements, otherwise the party that is being portrayed negatively in a campaign could sue the advertiser and stop the campaign. It would, but I don't think it's possible. The fine print sets out licensing terms equivalent to what we would call unreleased RM. It also gives Boeing the right to approve the end use work in which images are used, including photo layout, text, web page etc. Of course I don't know how long these conditions have been in place - for all I know they might have been introduced in response to that 2012 Airbus advert.
