  1. Same here, with no NU and no personal use - doing OK Alex
  2. 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
  3. Don't choose, do both - that's the life of a photographer Alex
  4. It could be 'Bishop of Llandaff' - that's one of the most widely grown double red ones Alex
  5. Why not? Blatant copyright theft is in the interests of none of us
  6. Kander and/or Alamy should sue the photographer - the magazine acted in good faith, though I'm surprised the art director didn't recognise the image. Alex
  7. Carbon Copy Cloner at regular intervals to a hard drive which is stored out of the studio Alex
  8. ColorMunki Display (X-rite) about every 2 months seems to keep my iMac on track (I do a fair bit of printing as well as colour-critical work for clients) Alex
  9. I had to delete a small number of images from a recent trip to Iceland because of heat haze, improbably. All shot at 200mm across a heather landscape on a sunny day - the ground must have warmed up quickly. Alex
  10. 22 sales for $518 gross - sales good but prices on the low side. Roughly average compared to the last twelve months Alex
  11. 6 similar ones sold in the last two days, all for the same low $$ fee
  12. The tide is definitely coming in now, even if the fees are unexciting Alex
  13. Well done - mine have picked up overnight too, though not to the same extent Alex
  14. This June is looking very poor for me so far - worst month for a long while. Looking forward to the famous end-of-month surge Alex
  15. I chose not to license my images for PU several months ago, and didn't notice any obvious drop in sales or revenue (though having said that, this month is looking pretty poor so far . . . ) Alex
  16. Just hit 10,000 (and one) on sale. A recent return visit to Iceland managed to push me over the line. Onwards . . . Alex
  17. Zooms and CTR fine, but no sales since the 24th of last month - unusual for me, but there's plenty of time yet Alex
  18. Dehaze is certainly useful - I have the free LR6 version available from Prolost - Prolost Dehaze for Lightroom 6.1 I don't know whether the Adobe version does a better job, but this one seems to work pretty well as a universal or gradient filter Alex
  19. It wouldn't recognise files from any recent camera introduction, I think - my most up-to-date camera is an X-T2 which it can't recognise, but in any case for that I do the DNG conversion using X-Transformer Alex
  20. I'm still happy with standalone LR6 - shoot Raw, always, import and convert to DNG in Lightroom, correct, then possibly export to Photoshop for anything I can't do in LR, and save as JPG for submission to clients or Alamy. I occasionally keep finished TIFFs for exhibition prints. I'm unlikely now to buy any new equipment that LR6 won't recognise. If any one can convince me of the benefits of the latest version of LR, I'm happy to listen! Alex
  21. Currently at exactly 1/3 of last year's sales and nearly halfway through the year already - proportion of revenue a bit better, but still not looking great Alex
  22. Can you let me know a bit more? I could be interested (alex@ramsay.net) Cheers, Alex
  23. 13 sales for $710 gross - roughly average for me Alex
