  1. I like your Father Christmas picture more than the cheesy ones (nothing wrong with cheese if it sells!), I could see yours selling to illustrate Christmas flight delays/ traveling at Christmas etc etc. Nothing wrong with taking lots of photos and then dismissing them, at least it doesn't cost film and processing expenses to decide that the pictures probably not got a salable use

  7. I think digital TV is a double-edged sword, its great to have more channels and HD, but there are lots of quality issues that probably go unnoticed by joe public, that makes me think it ain't all that great. Quite often you'll see compression banding on "hd" pictures particularly in the corners of dark scenes (sunsets, candle lit rooms etc etc). I recently got a Sony Google TV box, and some of the HD content on there is way better than broadcast TV, normally when its been posted by a TV Channel. On a separate note, how often do you noticed camera blegs/dust on screen, even on stuff thats b
  8. Whats your views on Pinterest? Is it just another way to rip off pro's, or an opportunity for self promotion? I can't decide which There are alot of alamy pictures on there, including alamys own page http://pinterest.com/alamy/
