    My hypothesis is that Alamy no longer needs me, I am exclusive, but miniature.  Their priority is to keep the other big agencies as partners.  Or I'm wrong?

     I agree with you. They checked their main sources for uploads and set the limit accordingly. Of course, Alamy is a business, so they will have to do what is best for them.


    What makes Alamy so special are all the photographers all over the world covering every little corner, in my opinion ... but I don't think Alamy sees it that way ... :(

  2. How many photographers will be motivated to go through their images and remove the "exclusive" check mark when uploading to other sites? .. so if Alamy felt it was not accurately checked in the past, I doubt that it will improve.


    I have no illusion that Alamy would care one way or another what I do with my photos .. so I'll stick around as long as I stay above Silver.


    If anyone would care to share where "elsewhere" is, feel free to send me a message :)

  3. I see a lot of good photos with potential to sell mixed with some where the lighting could be improved.


    The lighting needs some work to it, in my opinion. It was already mentioned the dark shadows, but you also have some photos that are just too dark, and some photos where the background may be OK, but the focal point is too dark. You can easily brighten up key features.


    I love PE2H95, PE2H9G and PE2HFP but PE3112 and PEJ8G are examples of under exposed focal point.


    Perhaps also decrease the saturation a little.

  4. I was just waiting for someone to comment on the "Ladies college" .. :) 


    It's easy to say rude things to the avatars on forums, and forgetting about the real people behind them. On the other hand, who else will tell you the truth about your photos? Or at least their personal opinion. Ignore what you find rude, and appreciate the feedback, even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear.


    I had 7 sales for $243, but the last 3 was kind of strange PU sales for $9.99 each. I wouldn't expect PU of those type of photos ... oh well ...
