  1. Thanks for choosing my sister lionesses. I love lions. Good luck to all. A tough group of images to choose from. Jill
  2. When I first looked at it, I thought the boat makes the picture and wouldn't have considered cropping it out. Jill
  3. When I saw the notification that you had quoted me, I clicked on it, it took me to this thread, but my post wasn't there, neither were the two after it. After refreshing twice, they showed up. It seems it behaves for awhile, then starts screwing up again. Jill
  4. His theory is not that they hacked his phone, but that they got someone in the white house to get access to his images and texts on his phone through government channels. But even if they somehow got the images legally, in order to use them under fair dealings, how much of an image would they be allowed to show, if that is the criteria for free use of an image for news reporting. Jill
  5. The one that confuses me on all these is the term "news reporting" under fair dealing. A fairly ambiguous term. Obviously it doesn't relate to most news, otherwise newspapers would simply lift images from Alamy and other agencies and claim fair dealing to avoid payment. The only examples I could find of fair dealing for news reporting is using excerpts from articles, books or magazines or a clip from a piece of film, otherwise a small portion of the completed work. To relate that to a photograph, then a newspaper would publish a piece of an image? What is considered a acceptable portion to fall under fair dealing? Jill
  6. Chuck, I am not (as stated in my post) wanting to discuss the story. What interests me is AMI's claim that they have the right to publish images taking by Jeff Bezos on his own phone without his permission, as he would hold the copyright to those images. They quote a statute in the copyright law. Do you think anyone has the right to publish any of our photos (whether taken professionally or personally ) without our permission or the permission of our agent? Jill
  7. I don't know how many of you are following Jeff Bezos' claim of blackmail against AMI (parent company of National Enquirer) and how they have selfies of his junk as well as their right to publish these images. The Enquirer stated in their email "As you know, “the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies . . . for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting . . . is not an infringement of copyright.” 17 USC Sec. 107. " Can some of our American contributors comment on how this is allowed, and do any other countries have such a exception to their copyright law? This could be precedent setting in the US if it ever goes to court. This isn't to get into a debate on Bezos' allegations, but the quoting of the law by AMI. Jill
  8. Another Sony RX100 Mark II user here. Love it. It has become the main camera with the Canon only used when I want to use the telephoto. Jill
  9. Sisterly love. Two lioness sisters at the Toronto Zoo
  10. I am seeing Bill's full portfolio that opens on his favourites tab. Maybe things show up differently on different browsers. Using Chrome. Jill
  11. I have some dross in my port, but since some of the dross has sold, I hesitate to remove. I still remember Jeff's sale of the pic of the friend's futon for $150 so that is what keeps me from removing images. Hoping to add a lot more this year. Hopefully no dross this time, but my PP skills are much better and that is the major flaw in a lot of my early port. Jill
  12. It's a 27" LG. I love it. I also have a 24" Huion IPS monitor that I use for doing graphics work. It is a great monitor as well, but I do the photography on the LG. Jill
