  1. Is Alamy offering again this year to lodge claims on behalf of contributors? Haven't seen or heard anything yet...
  2. The Age, Melbourne, Australia - Traveller liftout, Sat 14/11/20 (half page, print version only, probably also in sister paper the Sydney Morning Herald) Cafe Confiteria Las Violetas, Buenos Aires, ID E2FY61 / MAISANT Ludovic / hemis.fr
  3. Now that we're allowed to fan out as far as 25km from home, I've been able to drop off my Nikon Coolscan3000 for a professional clean-up. In the meantime, it has once again earned its keep with this month's sale by Alamy of 5 scanned archival transparencies from the 1970s (backpacker hang-outs in SE Asia) and the 1980s (Abu Dhabi skylines and streetscapes).
  4. Muchas gracias, Shearwater - I would not have imagined this particular image appearing in a Spanish newspaper!
  5. Thanks for the comments, everyone, I do appreciate the detailed advice. However, not at all sure that I fancy dismantling the scanner myself. One of Melbourne's few surviving camera repair technicians once cleaned this unit or an earlier one for me, and soon I'll be able to ascertain whether his business has survived the lockdown. At present almost every 'non-essential' business is operating behind closed doors, if at all. Ditto for purchasing new lenses or other gear, except by mail order.
  6. Thanks, Harry. I fear you are right about the need for a cleanup, as I've had to do so with earlier scanners. Unfortunately, almost all 'non-essential' businesses are shut down here at present and that will surely including photographic services. Anyway, here's a typical example, see the people sitting in full light with their backs to the photographer https://www.dropbox.com/s/sjq09p65tpo2ou1/DumaresqDamBBQ.jpg?dl
  7. I've generally good scanning results with old 35mm transparencies fed through my Nikon Coolscan 4000, many if not all can squeak past Alamy QC. However I can't yet find a way to compensate for the golden halo effect which often results whenever a sharp boundary exists between light meets dark (e.g. bright sky, shaded wall) in the original image. Perhaps I need a different approach to the scanner output settings.... can anybody suggest a remedy, please?
  8. Thanks, Genevieve.. time for our daily walk! Cheers, Philip
  9. Lucky devils... stuck down here in Melbourne and confined to a 5km radius of home, with no visitors allowed. And they wonder why the public parks and bike paths seem busier than usual? You certainly picked the best part of the continent to see out the pandemic! No end of photographic opportunities, either, love the bird images.
  10. Several days after the London power outage, the Contributor Log-in dropdown menu still fails to connect me to the Contributor Dashboard. Alamy Image Manager, no problem, but whenever I try to click through to the Dashboard, I am defaulted back to the main index page. Is anybody working on this, please?
