  1. If I shoot at f8 or f11, that would mean slowing down my shutter speed quite a bit. Maybe as slow as 1/20 sec. I guess I could use a monopod; a tripod could get in peoples' way. Thanls for the advice.
  2. Thanks for your replies. I may have to take another look at shooting RAW. Never got the hang of processing them.
  3. https://www.flickr.com/photos/liverpix/32021065087/in/dateposted-public/ This is 100% crop of centre.
  4. Hi, I recently had this photo of the Cavern Clun rejected for being Soft or lacking definition, Noise. What do you think ?
  5. Maybe, but that should come under blemishes and not noise.
  6. Yes, I noticed the circle on the left too (after I got the rejection) - I think I must have used the wrong spot healing brush. The circles were not on the original photo but on the copy I sent in.
  7. I was shooting in jpeg. I don''t think it's noisy, nether do you it seems but Alamy seems to think so for some reason.
  8. It's like what the OP said.He may have to submit the same 41 images time and time again. That wastes time. All Alamy needs to do is reect the bad ones and let the good one through in one go thus saving a lot of time.
  9. I've just had another photo rejected for noise. Photo taken on a Sony Nex 5N at ISO 400. Last photo to be rejected for noise was taken on the RX100, 5N has bigger sensor. What do you think ? https://postimg.cc/image/yam9zvrl7/
  10. I do understand Daniel McKay's point of view. I always thought that Alamy should just throw out the bad one/s and put through the good ones in one go. It would save time and trouble for both the photographer and Alamy.
  11. It's ok. I found the DAC payment in Account Balance and not Sales history.

    Thanks for your replies. I normally shoot in jpgs as was this photo, mainly because I tend to take a lot of photos and I never really got my head round RAW. I just had a look at my camera settings. There is a High ISO NR on my RX100; it was set on Normal - I have now changed it to High.
  13. Thanks. Only my photo sales are in my Sales History, no other income..
  14. Hi, I have been allowing Alamy to act on my behalf for the DACS payments over the last few years but can't recall receiving any money for it. How does Alamy notify you when they get money on your behalf ? Thanks.

    I have shown my photos at 100 per cent in the past. I did not show my last photo at 100% because I have forgotten the site where you can upload at 100% so ust uploaded photo onto flickr.

    Sure, that's why I post my failed photos into the forum for advice and members have difficulty in spotting the reason for failure. What I post on the forum are the same photo I post to alamy.

    I just think that if Alamy keeps rejecting photos for no apparent reason many more photographers will leave this site and move their business elsewhere. I always view my photos at 100 per cent before I submit and have even invested in a new camera and lenses to improve quality. Not sure what more I can do.

    My point is that the quality of news upload does not need to be as high as that of stock, so quality is not that important. My quality control now is higher than it was a few years ago when most of my photos were accepted. It seems to me that Alamy is a lot more stringent than before over its quality control.

    I would like to make a suggestion to Alamy. Could you allow photographers to upload to the news section when they are banned from the stock upload due to a quality control ban ? Very frustrating not being able to upload photos. Guess, I will have to look at other sites to upload to.

    Thanks, I''ll take a look at the software.

    Yes, I noticed that too but think that may be caused by the rust spots on the frame.
