  4. This is how I felt when the commission was 50/50. But at 40/60, even "standing still" seems like an unfeasible ambition. I have no idea how many pix I would need to shoot, edit, upload and tag every month, in order to increase my Alamy income. I just know it's too many. Apologies for pissing on the positive thread... 🙁

  6. Yes, the small sales are demoralising... because they're small... and the big sales are demoralising... because of Alamy's cut. The 60% is a step too far. Getting less for my skill/labour than the agency which handles my pix has knocked the wind out of my sails/sales. A smaller percentage of less and less is unsustainable... whether I'm talking about my income, my motivatiion or my work satisfaction. I'll upload a few pix every month, to keep my port ticking over... but the interest is draining away like water through sand.

  12. The 19th century called, Doc, and they want their joke back! (first citation: an 1887 vaudeville routine by Joseph Weber and Lew Fields: "Who was that lady I saw you with last night?" "She ain't no lady; she's my wife”)…

  14. Yes, of course. A bit more contrast might help (adding contrast is what I tend to do). But lower contrast can work too. And a darker subject might work in suggesting hiding, or hunting, or being hunted, or camouflage, etc...
  15. I'm not so sure. The pix you pointed out look almospheric to me, in a good way. Nilanjan... image R1XPB4 is captioned as 'Steppe Eagle', when it looks more like a hawfinch (?). 2BPAJMB, 'tigress playing with her cubs'. There are no cubs in the pic...

  19. If I recall correctly, the 610 was designed to put right the deficiences that affected (some) 600 cameras...
  20. I have the D610. Very happy with it. It may be the last camera I ever own... 😎
  21. Ah, you beat me to it... Following a meeting of Unesco, Liverpool has become only the third place in nearly half a century to be stripped of its world heritage status. The UN’s heritage body concluded that the “outstanding universal value” of Liverpool’s waterfront had been destroyed by new buildings, including Everton football club’s new £500m stadium.
