  1. Favourite pics uploaded Dec 2017

    The snow and a new super zoom lens to test out
  2. My 3rd sale ever A stitched panorama of the active volcano Mount Sinabung on Sumatra, Indonesia. Zoomed and sold today as -Usage: Personal use, Personal prints, cards and gifts, or reference for artists. Non-commercial use only, not for resale.
  3. Second sale ever and the second this month. Im on a roll.
  4. Yes I saw that but I have a Nikon and using FoCal my 80-200mm has a negative setting at 80mm and positive at 200mm. Setting the adjustment half way between the 2 would be a slightly positive setting and I feel that would be counter productive to the 80mm focal length. Of course this is a problem with my lense and not the software and I do recommend it. Primes are dead easy
  5. I’ve very recently purchased the pro version. Enjoying the technical side of stuff I thought the extra cost was worth it and I do recommend the program. It certainly takes the guess work out of balancing a ruler at an angle and adjusting until your happy but it is still quite a process. I’m also a bit confused what to do with my either end of focal lengths of zooms being different setting.
  6. Thanks for pointing that out, at first glance that is disturbing, especially as 14 of the photos on that first page are mine, but click on them and they all link back to the MS site for purchase.
  7. MY FIRST EVER ALAMY SALE Only took 7 months and however many photos, but so happy to of made a start An Editorial RF sale for Personal use!! Netting me a grand total of £4.31. But why is it all displayed in $'s on my Dashboard?
  8. I'd love a Critique!

    Yes I did know copy space is important and when i remember I do keyword it in.
  9. I'd love a Critique!

    To give them a sharper look? Most of them are actually already cropped and i didn't want to push the quality too low. And my thinking the foreground shows the shallowness of the sea and danger to the surfers plus makes the photos less "just another surfer on another wave" but i guess that didn't work! lol.
  10. I'd love a Critique!

    I did actually do a search check for these photos but for "desert point lombok" and there was only 2 photos at the time. Maybe this was too specific for that many photos. Im learning and understand your point about not uploading images that wont be zoomed. Thanks for your feed back.
  11. I'd love a Critique!

    Size doesn’t always count the location is one of the worlds top surf locations and waves are of “the type I will most likely never see again.” But I agree a bigger zoom would of helped.
  12. I'd love a Critique!

    Thanks for feedback guys. I do see a common theme from it, more themes! I was kind of aware of this and have started deleting photos a while ago but have the 6 month wait. What does deleting the tags and captions first do? I’ve already deleted a fair few but just by deleting the photo!
  13. I'd love a Critique!

    I would really appreciate a critique and some feed back of photos. Im coming up to nearly 6 months and 1000 photos on Alamy and I know its a waiting game on here but ive only had 8 Click zooms and no sales so far! Would that be considered normal? I can see and understand that my mostly South East Asia travel photos are quite different from what the regulars of this forum mostly submit but please fire away with your comments so hopefully i can improve. Must point out though the travel photos are already shot (i ran out of travel money and i am back in the UK now) and the 10k loosely ear marked for Alamy are slowly being worked through.
