  1. The top and bottom images from your five above are absolutely first class Andy. Three from me, as if I can get near those two. People racing their sledges on the famous toboggan run on Terrasse Dufferin in Quebec City The school run in India. Photographing the jellyfish in the Toronto Aquarium
  2. Thanks everyone. I will send Fabrice these replies and he can muse on them a while. He probably should sign up, he does that type of photo anyway and they are all there sat on his hard drive, so most of the work is already done. I'll have to guide him in the dark art of keywording and that,s about all.
  3. Greetings all I have a question for anyone who submits animal/wildlife images to Alamy. How do they do here? I ask because my photo friend Fabrice is a good wildlifer, he has some great images. He was wondering if it was worth the time and effort to get started here. He is French so the keywording would be a bit more laborious for him and, as we all know, properly preparing images does take time. Would he be better finding a more specialised agency? I have no idea at all as I have none of this type of photo. All input would be fully appreciated, I'd like to see his photos up for s
  4. I put two road bikes, a kid's bike and 2 BMX bikes up for sale last year and every one was snapped up within a week at a price not far from the original purchase price. One guy made a 5 hour round trip to pick up one of the BMX. I know the owner of a bike shop here and he had no stock left from mid-June until the manufacturers could catch up in the autumn. The Covid effect, so I am not surprised that used cameras are rocketing in price.
  5. Hi all Another superb portfolio of images to drool over. My favourite is the iceberg reflection in Greenland https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2021/feb/25/from-polar-ice-to-lightning-strikes-the-2020-frank-hurley-awards-in-pictures
  6. If you don't need colour then a B&W laser printer is a great option. I have one here for document and general printing and its great. I have had it 5 years and have got through one cartridge and am using the second. The only downside is that it takes a minute or so to print which can seem long in our ADD instant-everything world.
  7. No, I still do not have a printer. When the world re-opens and I can sell direct to the public at markets I will get another printer, but until then I am living without one.
  8. I think I saw the sky and mountain tops on my fourth or fifth visit to Skye. The Scottish Highlands and Islands are atmospheric even when it is grey and cloudy, they are some of my favourite places anywhere, second only to Chamonix. Elgol is lovely and one of my favourite peaks in Scotland is Bla Bheinn (Blaven).
  9. Thanks everyone, another thumbs up for the Alamy knowledge base. And I will have a look at that youtube channel.
  10. Hi all Can anyone give me a name for these plants with pink flowers? They are under the cliffs at Elgol on the Isle of Skye.
  11. Another fnatastic slection for your general admiration https://www.theguardian.com/environment/gallery/2021/feb/10/underwater-photographer-of-the-year-2021-winners-in-pictures Time Travel is my favourite by a country mile
  12. How do you get those large images in - it tells me I am limited to 750 pixels wide now?
  13. Three from me Closing an aircraft door The KPMG Building in Montreal Doorway in the Taj Mahal
  14. I loved my K1000 as well - simple, great meter that gave me some of my best exposed slides, and bulletproof - you could bang your tent pegs in with it. Some of the Pentax DSLR are excellent, but I am too invested in Nikon DSLR to consider changing.
