  3. A great subject for horrible winter days. I don't have many but this one has sold
  4. Apols another duplicate post - I pressed Save but nothing appeared to happen so pressed it again, twice!
  5. I started a Facebook group for our allotment site, not everyone agreed to join but we have a group of regular contributors and rather more lurkers. It's a great way to share knowledge and warnings of imminent disaster - e.g. rabbits etc. Most posts illustrated with photos, more efficient than words! Interestingly, although they are in a minority on the site, the majority of posts come from the female members. More generally I just enjoy pratting about with the camera. I generally avoid automation, finding it more satisfying to do most tasks manually. This occasionally leads to failure, e.g when I forget to set the IBIS to the correct focal length, but mostly it works just fine and keeps me happy.
  6. Not at all, but that's history and today the Nissan factory and associated supply chain is only 8 miles away - and hopefully still will be if B****** comes to pass!
  7. Imaginative challenge! Empty road - across Bowes Moor Northern England Empty seats in winter Wooden house with empty sky

  9. I think that it's becoming tougher all the while, although it's good to see John managing to buck the trend. My sales numbers and revenue grew consistently until they both peaked in 2017, since then I have seen a significant fall in both. i.e. 213 sales in 2017 and down to 179 in 2018, with 2019 not yet at the 2018 level. This is despite continuing to upload throughout the period. Being kicked out of Live News might have had some small influence, as, while they don't always sell at the time, they occasionally pop up later, and I no longer seek out or upload any news images. No doubt Ian is also correct in that statistically an individual's results are not too significant and certainly that would be the case for a single month, but perhaps less so over the course of a year.

  11. Can't afford to be too pious about this as I recently discovered two long standing almost identical images, processed from the same file, in my collection. Grateful to Alamy for immediate duplicate deletion! I try to avoid more than one shot from the same position but with a different focal length, however every rule is there to be broken and last week put two such up for sale. It does depend upon the subject, in an ideal world a landscape and portrait would be good, but, as others have said, not often possible.
