  1. Today
  2. If there were the slightest possibility of them I'm sure the licensee would ask for the details to be withheld. I've only read the requotes on this but I would hope and assume that banknote production is a little too sophisticated for a forger to be able to derive any information whatever from an image which may eventually, in greatly altered form, constitute part of a design. This is the sort of interesting licence that I would hope a contributor would be able to tell us about without worrying about vanishingly improbable consequences.
  3. Congratulations Carol! I was pretty chuffed when I got one of my first sales for $60 (my cut) which is still my largest but I have seen a few posts of people getting 3 and 4 figures for images. Hope it will happen for me one day too! What a story to tell that your image will be included on a banknote
  4. Thanks again everyone and georgphotos appreciate your input and the fact you have my best interests at heart, I honestly never gave it a thought when I put the original post up. I have removed the text from my posts as you suggested and if anyone wants to remove relating texts in a quote on their posts re: mine it's absolutely fine by me and I won't be offended. I genuinely did not think of any possible consequences to be honest. All my images are exclusive to Alamy. I still had a happy day yesterday but I have a happy day whenever I sell an image at whatever price๐Ÿ˜‰ Plus also got my hair done yesterday, so double happy day๐Ÿ˜ I will continue to be optimistic ๐Ÿ˜ It's fine to express views and opinions safaras I'm concerned, always so much to learn from others. Thanks again everyone for the kind words and here's to a lot more happy days for all of us๐Ÿ˜„ Carol
  5. Yes, the chap I'm doing the work for actually has one but it's not working as well as mine! Steenbeck were never intended to output sound for recording- you went to a dubbing suite to do that, but they're long gone, so I've made some modifications so it plugs into the PC.
  6. I'm simply saying that I would not personally wish to post anything which was potentially sensitive in case it compromised the sale in any way. I really do not mind what others decide to do - just stating an opinion in case it hadn't been considered and might have been regarded as a viewpoint worth considering. And I have no idea how forgers go about their work. But I'd be worried if this pic went for a Personal Use anytime soon ๐Ÿ˜„ No doubt this will get more red arrows but hey what are forums for if not for expressing views and opinions.
  7. Many thanks Bryan. I hope it doesn't attract too many people to Bolnuevo to spoil it
  8. I think anyone wanting to forge a banknote would work from the finished banknote . I see your point about exam papers, though the one time I had such a sale, I heard about it long after the exam had happened.
  9. Thanks for the spot, Bryan. Two weeks in a row for Times weekend uses. John
  10. That one was just the long end of the 18-55 kit lens. For closer stuff, an old 100mm process lens hot glued specially adapted to a set of BPM bellows that came with my Illumitran. Usually at f11 or 16. It's handy enough to use hand-held if you have a steady hand. That's a lot of hands. I can get up to about 130mm. of extension which is just over 1:1 on APS but the DOF is tiny of course. The lens goes AWOL below 16- really awful. I had been using an enlarging lens but it had a focus shift when stopped down (pretty useless for enlarging but there you are). The process lens was one of a set my brother got at a market for next to nothing so I at least owe him a drink. It would adapt nicely to mirrorless I imagine. The 100mm. is about the size of a Leica prime lens but the others are huge.
  11. Only during courtship does the Great Bowerbird (Chlamydera nuchalis) stands with its crest erect. When the crest lies flat, it is not even noticed, being the same grey colour as the rest of his feathers. In this case, I think he was just practising. He was part of a group of 7 bowerbirds around us, the others looking like juveniles and females. This particular individual would display on top of the termite mound, jump down, pick up a stick and do his silly mating dance with wings drooping.

  13. I had three sales last year. One hasn't cleared since December 2019. I've still not received a penny from Alamy. From what I've read, this seems to be the norm.
  14. Bummer! You were very nearly there. If it's any comfort, you might not have missed much. With the school holidays, it was jammed packed. Social distancing?? How?? No way. We were camping next to it, so were able to get there very early in the day before anyone staying elsewhere had the chance to arrive. And you should have seen Cooinda.... Pure hell on earth. One week to go before the kids return to school. Yeah!!

  16. total number of sales mid 2020 just surpassed total number of sales in 2019
  17. Book, mid $$. The nice thing was this was going on over my back fence a few years ago. Just stepped out of my house with a camera.
  18. Those were the days shortly after Iโ€™d been painting watercolors. My mind was heavy on composition, and of course I love birds as you do. If they wear feathers, Iโ€™m a fan. Even noisy, pushy seagulls. Yeah, I understand on the deletes. Been thar......done that.
  19. I ended up with several hundred pix, I'm not telling you the number of deletes... Bird landing from the wrong angle, too low behind the termite mound, too quick, only partially in the frame, wings wrong angle, etc etc. And then when they were two of them, they had to be both in focus, not hiding part of the other's head, etc. Bird photography is when you need the most patience but is also the most rewarding, in my opinion of course. I'm aware that it wouldn't do much for most people. You must have been pleased to win a prize, it makes it all the more worthwhile knowing you are not the only person liking your shot.
  20. Ah! A woman after my own heart. Before I got into stock and was shooting film, I seeded a huge washed up twisted, gray tree near a lighthouse in Oregon. I had the lighthouse in the BG, threw crumbled cookies (all I had) on the tree trunk, scrambled backwards with all that driftwood and rock tripping me in order to get seagulls with wings spread landing on the weathered tree. It took several tries because the gulls swooped so fast and ate the crumbs before I could back up far enough to frame the shot. The resulting image look almost black and white, but it had a bluish tint because the day was misty. It won a best in show in a local contest, so it was worth my nearly breaking my neck. We were on vacation, so this was not a planned shoot. I just saw what was there and my mind painted a picture. So I had to set it up. Gen, Iโ€™m very sure you have done the same thing. In your travels, you stumbled upon a scene and your imagination directed you. I love it when that happens. Because thatโ€™s what it is, a spontaneous happening.
  21. No they don't eat termites. I had discreetly hidden wild bird seeds on the other side.
  22. Beautiful bird! So do the birds come to eat the termites or what? And what do the termites eat without a house around?
  23. Yesterday
  24. My only June sale, a $20 PU, has been refunded, and my only sale so far in July was for $5.06 gross, $1.52 net. How's that for misery?! ๐Ÿ™‚
