  1. Through the church keyhole. Blue. Alternative accomodation.
  2. Close up photography with a mobile phone, 2018. Aberystwyth university May Ball 2008. Vintage mobile phone photography!
  3. Had good results with Photobox, only used them twice as I had my own printer, but once for a colour profiled canvas print (incidentally the nasturtium in the "orange" thread) and recently for some mobile phone photo prints. Cheers, Keith
  4. Another Nasturtium, 'Empress of India' Interior ofJelly Ear fungus, Wales, UK. Cloudy orange deposits of insoluble ferric oxides and a fragmented oily sheen in a woodland pool produced by Iron reducing bacteria, Wales, UK
  5. Is one of the colour channels heavily clipped in the raw image? If so you will never recover the detail or smooth colour transitions. When shooting bright flowers expose to avoid clipping in all 3 channels regardless of how dark this makes the overall image. Dark tones can be recovered better from modern sensors whereas clipped channels are forever clipped. Its a bad idea to photograph flowers in full sunlight as an exposure correct for the saturated colours can mean too much recovery is needed for the image to be decent even after processing carefully. I supply a specialist plant library who
  6. Thanks for your help putting the image up. I'll work out the posting thing sometime.
  7. Common Toad, Bufo bufo, run over by a vehicle while spawning in a puddle on a track then dessicated, Wales, UK https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-common-toad-bufo-bufo-run-over-by-a-vehicle-while-spawning-in-a-puddle-104079292.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=BD88A0B6-DC58-42D4-B2B3-439EA2D8751C&p=31824&n=0&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=0&IsFromSearch=1&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d0%26pn%3d1%26ps%3d100%26sortby%3d2%26resultview%3dsortbyPopular%26npgs%3d0%26qt%3dtoad%20spawn%20run%20over%26qt_raw%3dtoad%20spawn%20run%20over%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26ot%3d0%
  8. Recommend black rapid attached to lens tripod bush hanging behind you at a comfortable height relative to your butt/arm length. Rotate the lens in the collar to find a position where your hand naturally finds the camera grip and shutter release when you reach down. Having it behind you stops it swinging when walking. If stalking you'll have it up front with both hands anyway. This works well with d800 with 300 f4 afs and battery grip. Balance more important than weight, adding a tc to this setup makes it feel disproportionately heavier as it throws the balance off. A heavier lens would be fi
  9. Similars are pictures with only small differences, expressions, composition around main subject, angle of view etc. Sisters are pictures from the same shooting session and may be more fundamentally different, yet still connected to the original shot - same model, different background or vice versa. Its hard to be precise. Both will be prohibited from sale elsewhere if one of a set is marked exclusive to alamy. Derivative images with different exposure, processing etc would definitely be sisters if not similars i believe. If in doubt, dont submit elsewhereor mark as exclusive. I have a sizeable
  10. It's a winch, surely? A hand winch/ handwinch. Like a Tirfor but i think its a different make. A handle is attached to one of the 2 levers and moved back and forth - one tightens, one lets the cable out.
  11. Only been a problem for me since win10. As i understand it there won't be a win11 its all incremental updates from now on. So even if you wete able to turn off auto updates it wouldn't really be a good idea, you'd have to catch up at some point. The drivers/update issues could be partly connected to using 10 on older machines?? On the plus side, i did find a way to throttle the bandwidth used by update so it doesn't take 3 hours to upload 10 pics to Alamy while the update hogs the internet.
  12. Could be update related. I had total loss of keyboard function following an update and a more serious issue affecting the computer turning on at all. The former was solved with a manual driver update, the latter by allowing windows update to "fix a problem" after which a mass update series occurred. All now pretty much working fine now bar one issue where my colour management profile gets ditched at random moments. My root problem could be the laptop was originally win8... Also hibernate option disappeared from all menus and was a pain to reactivate. Win8 or not i link all the above issue
  13. Been trying to find a keywording app for android for ages. Another thread on here recently led me to f stop media gallery. You need the £3.59 pro version to save metadata but it seems worth it. The keywords entered show up in the usual way in the program i use for keywording on pc (nikon viewnx). Haven't uploaded yet but dont anticipate problems. Works fine on experia z tablet and phone. Seems the best browser app ive seen for android too. I use aim with no problems through firefox browser on the tablet but it doesnt function at all on the small phone screen. Cheers, Keith
