  1. The power of the bicycle or of the written word? By the way, he carried on for a mile or so beyond me still texting and didn't crash or fall off...
  2. Surely, as with other copyright material, editorial use is fine? Obviously you can't use a bank note in advertising or your company logo.
  3. A Tokyo festival Tokyo Diet (Parliament) building after a small typhoon. By the way, the sky was really like that, no enhancement. Tokyo Metro I may change some, depending on rules clarification.
  4. Congratulations - good win! Not that it matters too much for this one but Alamy only or any photograph?
  5. Crikey - not a place I would have chosen to be, especially after Halabja in 1988... I presume there's a story behind you being there? It was a self-financed operation though I did get film/processing from The Independent and in the end The Independent got me a flight home on BA as the ticket I had was for Turkish Airlines who decided to go on strike when I needed to get home. I did send four images back on the wire machine from Reuters in Istanbul - this took an incredible (looking at todays technology) 20 mins per B/W image - and obviously one had to process the film and make a print
  6. CC monthly (because that's what I do)! Really though, it depends on what you need and your workflow. Hard to answer for you. I do 99% of my post processing in LR, only using PS when I need to do something special - particularly any touching up or cloning out of anything more than a dust spot. PS is just so much quicker and easier than LR for that kind of thing and transparency just doesn't exist in LR. Maybe if you say a bit more about your workflow and what you are trying to do we can offer opinions but ultimately you're probably the best judge. Oh yes, the big question is: do you care

  8. Large format (8x10) camera with Alvan G. Clark, the first double Gauss lens. Belongs to a friend who was taking some street photographs in Ginza ( http://www.maudric.com/blog/2016/02/06/photographers-in-ginza-2/) and I got to have a go!
  9. A good thing then that I did not add something like back to the future ;-) wim Everyone will have known that anyway, 2020 is summer, not Winter Olympics (in Tokyo).
  10. Work in Adobe RGB and convert/downgrade to sRGB if you have to: https://www.google.co.jp/search?q=srgb+vs+adobe+rgb&espv=2&biw=1555&bih=773&tbm=isch&imgil=qf1PIPU3KNA6OM%253A%253BYTs1hNSruws6HM%253Bhttps%25253A%25252F%25252Ffstoppers.com%25252Fpictures%25252Fadobergb-vs-srgb-3167&source=iu&pf=m&fir=qf1PIPU3KNA6OM%253A%252CYTs1hNSruws6HM%252C_&usg=__9DhVZanXKI2E-N5VTyHRzEli7-o%3D&ved=0ahUKEwjIy-K8quDLAhVJG5QKHalWBq4QyjcINQ&ei=I4r3VoiuMMm20ASprZnwCg#imgrc=qf1PIPU3KNA6OM%3A
  11. I have to disagree with your printing analysis Mike, I use a well known Pro UK lab they print up to 60" x 40" and do this from their recommended 8 bit colour file, so their is no "protection". I agree to a point - all I'm saying is that if you want maximum quality you need better than 8 bit colour. My monochrome images are very different at 8 bit than they are at 16 (12 really) or, with HDR, full 32 bit. So, depending on what people are after, it may or may not make a difference.
  12. You really need to look at similar threads that have gone over this before - a quick search in this forum should do it. Also, look at the instructions that Alamy have put out - very good and detailed. You're arguing a case that shouldn't be argued. QC is what it is. You just need to read the requirements in detail and do what they ask. I only have a small number of images but have never had a fail, so it can't be that difficult! Good luck and let us know how you get on.
  13. Isn't it just a matter of grainy for film and noisy for digital? I know that we've discussed this before and you can get noisy photographs through if they appear to be intentionally, rather than just technically poor.
