  1. Use google search "alamy forum bhz" I am not using bhz BTW. Thanks.
  2. Could someone point me to info about BHZ please? The forum software won't allow me to search on 3 characters.
  3. I've not created any new Alamy images for a while. I seem to remember that we are not supposed to sharpen. Is that correct please?
  4. And by the way I love the Lighthouse image. Thank you.
  5. I was thinking about sharpness. However I now realise that cropping would reduce the overall total image size & total pixels, but would have no effect on the actual sharpness of the remaining part of the image. You may well have saved me from buying a teleconverter!
  6. You say in another thread that you are using a D810. I would bet (figuratively speaking) that you would get better results cropping using the 70-200 without any converter than full frame with any one of these 3 attached and still have an image that could be used for almost any general purpose including printing large. You are quite possibly correct MDM, particularly with the 1.4 t/c. However looking at the 2.0 t/c, would it not be correct that if I cropped an image by 50% in PP, the image IQ would therefore drop by 50%?
  7. There's a new image manager? Are Alamy rolling them out or do I need to tweak something? Edit: I found the blog. It's a roll-out.
  8. Sorry coming late to this, I am also considering a t/c for my Nikon 70-200mm f2.8G. Some useful testing from Nasim Mansurov from Photography Life, produced some IQ figures as follows: No t/c = 100% 1.4 t/c = 95% 1.7 t/c = 83% 2.0 t/c = 74% I read this to be that a 1.4 t/c results in no noticeable degradation. https://photographylife.com/image-degradation-with-nikon-teleconverters
  9. Where is this shown please? Unless I have no stars...
  10. You're welcome, but bear in mind that my slides are purposefully grainy, using expired or cross-processed film.
  11. Feeding back my response from Alamy. They quickly replied that it would not be suitable as my example image would not pass QC.
  12. Thank you for your replies. I like Bryan's suggestion of contacting contributor relations, but I'm not sure how to do that.
  13. Thank you for your replies. I do have a few archive images, but yes, most of this would be new work. Here's an idea of the sort of thing. This happens to be a 100% zoom, so has a smidge more grain than usual, but I love the image.
  14. Greetings I have a Nikon F100 film camera with which I like to experiment, often with cross processed film, usually with a Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lens attached. My digitalising system involves processing the film into a slide format (even if it's a print), then using my Nikon D810 + Nikkor 60mm f2.8 lens with a slide attachment, shooting in RAW & then introducing into my regular workflow. Does anyone know whether this type of image would be acceptable to Alamy's QC?
  15. I noticed a FB post from Alamy that they are off for 2 weeks. Is that correct? Will we have to wait 2 weeks to get though QC?
  16. The D7100 is an excellent DX (crop) camera. The camera packs a lot of features & the quality is very good. Looking at the rest of the Nikon features, the D7100 does not appear to be lacking in much to create any obvious need for improvement. What may be coming is a semi-pro level DX. Nikon have been losing sales in this area & this may come to market either as a D9300 or as a D7200.
  17. I have a D810 & am in the same place as you - considering which lens for landscape. The 14-24mm is an excellent lens, but cannot take regular filters & at 1kg is heavy. The 16-35mm takes a 77mm filter, weighs 680kg & has VR. The DxO ratings for the 14-24mm are 30 overall & 23 sharpness. For the 16-35mm it's 25 overall & 19 sharpness, It's a difficult decision as there is nothing better than the 14-24mm as long as you can live with the impracticality. Here's a useful review about landscape lenses in general: https://photographylife.com/best-nikon-lenses-for-landscape-photography
  18. Hi David, I'm a computer engineer so build my own personal pcs. I had to upgrade my pc for PS/Lightroom & have this spec: Intel i7, 16gb RAM, 256gb SSD, 2tb hard disk, AMD Radeon HD5700 2gb, Windows 7 64bit Pro. Backup to USB drive + Cloud. I have the main RAW+JPG files on the 2tb disk & currently the Lightroom catalogue also on the 2tb, but I intend to move that to the SSD. As already suggested, you could build your own, but if you're not confident, off the shelf would be fine. HP have a business range separate to their consumer models found in stores. Within the business range are the Workstation models. These are very good quality computers & the installation does not need to be "de-crapified". I supply these models for clients using CAD or photo/video work. Here's the Aussie link: http://www8.hp.com/au/en/campaigns/workstations/overview.html
