  3. Thanks for that. Looks like you nailed it. Appreciate your help
  4. Thailand is way way far from the range of the Northern Goshawk. If it is one, it's a juvenile escapee from either a falconer or a zoo. Crested goshawk is more likely. Google Thailand hawks for examples. Don't see the crest on that one, but could be an adult trait. Eye color in accipiters tend to be yellow in adult birds, too.
  5. This image has been sitting around gathering dust on Alamy for almost six years. It was zoomed a few times but never sold. Goes to show that Alamy really is a long game. Travel guide use, distributor, mid $$ . (Sony NEX-3 w/18-55 Sony e-mount kit lens)
  6. Windows 10 home screen wallpaper (images change most everyday). Lake Wanaka, New Zealand, Amril Izan Imran
  7. That's very upsetting and weird. I guess there's not a heck of a lot you can do about it, though. I suppose you should even feel complimented in a strange way...
  8. Yesterday
  9. I always check off my photos as Rights Managed, any reason why I should choose Royalty free.
  10. Blaming his wife. The photographer. Blaming His Wife. - OK I obviously was mistaken by thinking it could have been from Live News, because it had appeared alongside other Live News images of openings and shows in past Google and Alamy searches. His wife. Not the intern this time. (That probably was the one at the Big Issue.) wim

  12. It gets worse: I now seem to have really bad images on SS and similar sites which come up on Google Images. Yuk. https://www.shutterstock.com/search/wim+wiskerke https://www.barewalls.com/posters-art-prints/wim-wiskerke.html wim
  13. Well, no it is OK in quite heavy rain, but I would not try to immerse it. : :
  14. I've seen my keywords here copied including misspelled keywords - but your name - wow! It would be nice if people could think for themselves.

  16. Wow! Copied your name even. So we can now add possible identity theft to copycatting. 🙄 I confess to having copycatted an image I saw -- and really liked -- in a travel guidebook once. It has never been zoomed or sold. Bad karma, I guess.

  18. Thank you -- I see it that way too. This was quite a hike, you sweat for 3 hrs & gain almost vertical kilometer to get to a pass. But once on the pass you start descending & this opens up. Took Canon SLR out of backpack and spent an hour soaking it all up, experimenting, trying to catch details etc. Anyone interested I have detail write-up on personal site (work in progress) https://autumnsky.zenfolio.com/rockie/banff-louise/cory---edith-pass-loop (Most pics are with little Sony Rx and quite bad from photography perspective, but they were quick HDR snapshots to capture trail, not make commercial material).
  19. Totally. I am getting (slowly!) what Alamy is all about. I am an amateur though that first and foremost enjoys photography & learning various aspects of it, including stock industry. I did sell few landscapes, pure landscapes, in Alamy though. Pays for gear ;=)

  22. I haven't done much still life, but one of my best selling shoots was copied on another site years ago, back in the day when they would share top sellers via twitter and facebook every day. I would guess that with travel photography it is less likely, although if someone lives near a place you've shot or is traveling there, it certainly could happen. I had work in a show once with a photographer friend who told me he had been fighting with a large reputable site because he was convinced that the rather prosaic shot he had in the show of a building in Ireland had been stolen. I suspected that it wasn't even a copycat, but that someone else had been there around the same time he was and took the shot. It was beautiful, but the framing wasn't unusual. There is always the fear someone will steal your unusual angle, but I don't really know how you prevent it. I've been in the same position as Bill a couple of times, doing a double-take thinking a photo is mine and then realizing it's just very similar. It's funny, back in 2011 I traveled around Scandinavia with a former member of this forum. She and I spent much of the 9 days of that trip together. One day we spent the entire day together, first on a tour boat and then on Gamla Stan, the old town. We both shot so many images and yet none of our photos look alike. It's really surprising that more travel photos don't look the same, but I don't think either of us had any preconceived ideas about what to shot there. On the other hand. I shoot many lighthouses and there are a few famous ones where I will sometimes do a double-take when seeing a shot similar to one of mine taken from the most obvious angle. I think you're more likely to see something similar when it's a well-known landmark, perhaps because there are so many thousands of photos that it is bound to happen or perhaps because people have seen it in photographs and it colors the way they shoot the scene, whether subconsciously or consciously, maybe a little of both.
  23. This image is sick!!! What a terrific movie poster it would make!
  24. Believe it or not Ed, my little corner of Portugal has been colder than the UK for most of the summer so far! We are all wondering when it will arrive, unlike the interior where it is its normal high 30's. I would rather be here with low 20's than that though. I have family coming over from the UK next week, they are in for a shock, haha. The last couple of years here the summer has been arriving later so I look forward to a lovely warm September and October. Fingers crossed!
  25. Yes I know. Alamy still has highest single sale potential by a margin. Recently I had an email from Alamy customer service; some customer inquired about this image of mine: This is mix of architecture and landscape, but still in the "niche" I like to shoot. They wanted it as book cover, and price was $999 (*gasp* -- if I ever sell pic for that kind of money I'll stop thinking of myself as amateur hobbyist). I haven't heard anything since so deal is most likely off, but it does in my view illustrate this whole niche discussion: Shoot what you enjoy don't force yourself into something else just for the sake of selling. I am modifying strategy though & stopped uploading high-end photos (regardless of content) to other sites. This image was downloaded on a micro several times & this was probably what prevented the sale as this was what they inquired about.
  26. Some of them even copied my name in the keywords, not just the subject and the location. I have one really nice image that made it into a great cover once and was banned (for totally wrong reasons), but some of the copycats are still here. So yeah stuff happens. Not a lot that you can do about it. Except making images they will never be able to replicate. wim
  27. It does, Jenny. I need neither heat nor AC right now since the temperature runs from about 17C to 22. At night I'm under a duvet. But I see what you mean. They didn't install air conditioning. They installed a flexible heating system. How is your summer going?
