  1. Night time travel in London. All taken with a Canon G1X mark III.
  2. When I'm out and about far from a power socket, I charge my batteries with a usb charger connected to a portable compact powerbank. This way I can shoot away while a flat battery is being charged in my shoulder bag.

  3. Harry, you might want to caption this beautiful saleable image and several others on the same page: https://www.alamy.com/zhh008-image224968972.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=ED4633A8-2312-4978-9DAB-F8393B31656D&p=705462&n=0&orientation=0&pn=16&searchtype=12&IsFromSearch=1&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d12%26pn%3d16%26ps%3d100%26sortby%3d2%26resultview%3dsortbyPopular%26npgs%3d0%26qt%3d%26qt_raw%3d%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26ot%3d0%26creative%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26pc%3d%26blackwhite%3d%26cutout%3d%26tbar%3d0%26et%3d0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3d0%26loc%3d0%26imgt%3d0
  4. Yes, No problems with getting accepted as the image quality I'm getting from my Olympus OMD-EM1 mark 1 (Micro Four Thirds sensor 17.3mm x 13mm, 16mp) is excellent. It's only when shooting above iso 1600, which I try not to do, will a full frame get me better results. The new model Olympus OMD-EM1 mark 2 is supposed to be a big improvement over my older model, but I'm happy with it so won't be upgrading for sometime. I only have the M.Zuiko 40-150 f2.8 lens at the moment and use via an adapter my 55mm Micro Nikkor which benefits from the IBIS (in body image stabilization). For Wide shots
  5. Yes, already familiar with this bird from my childhood days in Singapore & Malaysia.
  6. Oriental Magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) in Juvenile plumage.
  7. Well done Luke, keep up the good work, you have some great images on your port.
  8. 1st picture looks like California towhee (Melozone crissalis), 2nd & 3rd picture is of a Spotted towhee (Pipilo maculatus) also called rufous sided towhee.
  9. Down to only 6 sales for $301 from last months 12 sales for £298, since I got more revenue per sale (two sales were for $$$)..so have to say a good month.😎
  10. The Canon G1X iii is small high quality weather sealed campact camera with an 24mp APS-C sensor (same as in the 80D dslr). Its has a very sharp 24-70mm (35mm equiv.) lens. Focus is very fast and it has fantastic ergonomics, a pleasure to use. It fits in my jacket pocket. You can get smaller APS-C compacts, but they all have a fixed focal length wide lens like the Ricoh GRii & GRiii, Fuji X70 & XF10 and Nikon Coolpix A. I've sold off all my big heavy Nikon and Canon Dslr's & lenses. I now just carry the Canon G1X iii in my pocket and an Olympus EM1 with 40
  11. Must be a shortage of fish in the lake if this Heron has to resort to eating a sandwich☹️
  12. Pansy var. Joker Light Blue ....( Pansies have one downward pointing petal and Violets have two downward pointing petals ). Parm
  13. If say tomorrow you happen to be the only photographer to snap a plane crash or be in the thick of it during a Brexit riot, then of course alamy loses if you have to send your exclusive pics to someone else, regardless of your past track record.
  14. Looks like a Cayuga duck to me. Parm
  15. Maybe the Alamy live news team can say why there aren't any alamy images in any of these picture of the day publications? https://www.theguardian.com/news/gallery/2019/apr/05/grave-sweeping-day-and-a-gold-coast-cutback-fridays-top-photos https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/04/05/pictures-day-5-april-2019/view-electricity-wires-caracas-venezuela-west-venezuela-started/ https://www.standard.co.uk/news/world/best-pictures-of-the-day-a3648561.html To boot out photographers isn't going to improve sales. Get your sales team to do what the other sale
  16. Well done Alan, and an excellent set of images you have. Parm
  17. This was a live news upload, bofore I got booted out. 🙄
  18. Mid $$ Cricket match in local park. Midd $$ St George Square in Luton.
  19. River Thames, Millenium Bridge & the Square Mile (City of London) during a particulariy heavy Hailstone shower.
  20. Those types of straps are really only any good when attached to the tripod collar of big heavy lenses like the Canon 100-400, so the weight of the lens does not damage the camera's lens mount. I tend to just cradle my canon 100-400 on my left forearm with the camera body sat in the palm of my left hand, my right hand on the camera grip. that way I'm ready to quickly put the lens to use, and no camera/lens strap fatigue. Parm
  21. Camelia, maybe C. Japonica? Parm
  22. ( 8 Sales totalling $436.45 ) helped by one $195.56 & one $112.50 sale. Parm
