  1. I don't see how you could have the phone and hand in such deep shadow (silhouette even) but have the Team View logo on the display of the phone as it is. Surely ambient light from the screen would light up the hand and phone if the Team View logo was actually on the phone screeen.
  2. The image is still a composite though... I thought the idea was that Live news was... 'Live'.
  3. Boarding a plane at Heathrow: A large boat appears from the mist in Lisbon:
  4. Edited my earlier post to change my third image.. as I took a picture a week or so ago which fits the subject, I thought I would use that instead. Back of Windsor castle reflected in a puddle:
  5. Whether the original photo is legit, is an interesting question. It rather reminds me of this though: https://petapixel.com/2018/04/30/a-closer-look-at-the-stuffed-anteater-photo-contest-scandal/ Whether taking a photo of a photo in a gallery is legit... reminds me of another recent case that was discussed on this forum. For me, I'd want more context if it were my image... include someone looking at the photo which would be a much wider shot.
  6. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.. I have a RX100M3 and nearly always shoot in A mode. I don't like pushing ISO past 400.. even at 400 I am usually having to apply significant noise reduction... 3200 ISO I would be sceptical about getting past QC. @Allan Bell If it's not too late, my suggestion would be to go try a load of shots around your home or another suitable indoor space in advance and try the different settings... find out what works and what doesn't so that when you need to get the shit, you already know what settings to use!
  7. It's worth remembering that not every image purchased will be used online. It is entirely possible that this image is just used in print form somewhere be that in a book, in a leaflet or just the print version of a newspaper article. And if this is the case, Google will not find it.
  8. i remember when I signed up to both Alamy and Stockimo, I missed the cut-off by a few weeks and so only get 20% of the sale price.
  9. Take it with your Sony 90% of the time unless you're in a situation where being discrete is important and the Sony would be too conspicuous in which case go with the phone. Otherwise, I'd go with the best camera that you have with you at the time.. which is going to be the Sony. I take stock photos with my phone all the time.. but it's nearly always when I don't have one of my cameras with me. Photos taken on a phone and uploaded via the "something" only earn the contributor 20% unless you were lucky enough to sign up at the very start compared with 40/50% (depending on exclusivity) via main Alamy. So yes, shots taken on a phone earn less than those taken on a camera through the Alamy marketplace. With other agencies, this discrepancy in price doesn't exist.. but there again, they probably don't pay as much in the first place...
  10. Just watched a quick first impression YouTube video on the new Nikon Z50.. I'm liking the looks of that!
  11. But it's nice to see that it's in the print edition as well as just on-line! I'll hope for a few pennies more! Thanks for the spot!
  12. The 'Optional' tab in AIM contains an 'Additional Information' field which allows you to enter free text. If it gives you peace of mind, you could add the translations from the signs into there with a bit of a description about what is going on.
