  1. December Challenge, "Taste" as in anything food or drink

    Great idea for a topic. Lots of wonderful pics already!
  2. Image identification

    If someone could help me identify these insects I would appreciate it very much. The nest was in a small tree in a North Central Florida wetland area (Gainesville). The photos were taken last month. I've listed them as "paper wasp, polistes exclamans," based on information and photos found through Internet searches. However, though I am trying to learn, I still know relatively little about insects.

    And bright, red fingernails, too!
  4. ID workflow: butterfly proboscis

    I also agree; the photo should be binned. I had to make a hard choice just today and tossed out a pic of a herd of deer escaping into the woods. I was sure the eyes of the last animal, the only one whose face could be seen, were sharply focused. However, looking at the picture again tells me they are soft. I'm very disappointed, as I really like the picture, but it just isn't good enough.

    Now you’re in MY part of Florida! 😀
  6. Lens flare

    Yes, of course!
  7. Lens flare

    Very interesting points! Thanks for the feedback. You have all given me plenty to consider. In the future, I’ll make sure to take a closer look at photos with lens flare before tossing them out, or maybe uploading. I had one from a shoot just yesterday that’s worth another look, I think. I haven’t had a QC fail since I joined Alamy in January, and tend to take advice I’ve learned here very literally. If I’ve had any reservations about a photo in the past, no matter how much I’ve liked the picture, It’s gone into the bin.
  8. Lens flare

    I saw in the images sold in November thread that geogphotos and spacecadet had sold two very nice images, each containing lens flare. Congratulations to you both for your sales. I have questions about uploading photos with lens flare. I’ve tossed a few images in past months because of flare. It never crossed my mind to upload them. I assumed they wouldn’t pass QC. I’m wondering if a lot of photographers upload photos of this type. If they’re otherwise pleasing, technically acceptable images, but have lens flare, would you recommend uploading?

    Thanks, George, and thanks also to that someone!
  10. City parks -- property?

    I’ve always found this confusing. I have family in NYC and visit a good bit. Are you saying I don’t need to list photos taken in city parks - Central Park, Carl Schurz for example - as needing property releases?
  11. Image identification

    Thanks, George. I’ll give that a look.
  12. Image identification

    This gull was spotted along the west coast of north central Florida last week. I've tried, but have been unsuccessful at identification. Any help would be much appreciated.
  13. FTP submissions merged for QC

    Maybe I’m missing something, Ian, but using image manager, couldn’t you give a special tag to each photo in your different sub-groups, then search for the sub-groups separately once Alamy has updated? You could then work on each sub-group as a separate batch. Add super tags to each subgroup and then delete all the special tags (if necessary) once you’ve finished editing.
  14. Favourite images uploaded in October 2017

    That’s fantastic!
  15. Your favorite blurry image

    I like the photo, too, TeeCee. I’m a retired educator and it looks like you captured the natural flow of students in the hallway in between classes (withough the cell phones in their hands 😀).
