    Might it be an idea to have a category for 'Religion'? It doesn't really seem to fit with any of the existing categories (though churches of course go under 'Architecture'). There are a great many subjects (ritual, worship, artefacts, concepts etc) that might be better placed in a category of their own - and it's certainly a very current topic. Alex
  4. $176 direct sale just dropped in for an archival image - first 3-figure sale for several months Alex
  5. Pretty good for me - 31 sales for $938 gross. Average prices low, but in the end it's the bottom line that matters. Alex
  6. And (an earlier point someone made) - regarding sensor spots, when in the Lightroom develop module you need only click on the retouching brush and then tick the 'visualise spots' option which will appear underneath your picture - much the easiest way to ensure a clean image Alex
  7. Let us know how you get on with the X-T2 and the 18-55 - I'm (mostly) pleased with mine, but it does have a tendency to produce unsharp images from time to time - I think the AF can be slow, particularly if I don't use the additional battery pack to save weight when I'm walking Alex
  8. I've just returned from a week walking in the hills of northern Romania, two of us and a guide. We were met everywhere with kindness and hospitality, sometimes in very remote places. A tiny amount of Romanian went a very long way and got us deep into entertaining conversations about farming in our respective countries, the idiocy of Brexit and so on. Everyone we met was pleased to be photographed, when asked. On our last day we walked down into a village known for its distinctive vernacular architecture. We were sitting outside a bar when two large coaches drew up and disgorged crowds of visitors, mostly though not all Chinese. They looked like extras from Apocalypse Now, wearing flak jackets and festooned with cameras with enormously long lenses. They proceeded to spread out through the village, photographing everything and everyone without consent, leaning over fences to shoot people sitting in their gardens, poking cameras into windows - they even photographed us, for some unknown reason. They also casually dropped their rubbish, which we picked up and made them take away. It was a shocking and disturbing thing to see - and, speaking as a photographer, shaming. I don't know what the answer is, but that village and others like it will very soon lose its innocence. Later that evening in the same village I met two men returning from work. I greeted them and asked if I might take a photograph of them. I need hardly say that they refused. Alex
  9. Same here, with no NU and no personal use - doing OK Alex
  10. Agree with Wim's diagnosis - foreground seems sharp enough, but the car should be much more blurred (slower shutter speed) otherwise QC can't tell what you're trying to show Alex
  11. Don't choose, do both - that's the life of a photographer Alex
  12. It could be 'Bishop of Llandaff' - that's one of the most widely grown double red ones Alex
  13. Why not? Blatant copyright theft is in the interests of none of us
