    That's not my point.

    B.t.w. Eurasian eagle owls live all over Europe, even in Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Denmark which aren't exactly mountainous countries Sure, some do. But Collins Bird Guide: "Resident in mountains and forests, preferring areas with rocks, steep cliffs and mature trees (preferably conifers); often in rocky archipelagos....Small population of presumed captive origin possibly becoming established in N. Britain." A meadow in England with no sign of any conifers or rocks is hardly representative.

    The lynx photos are good but if I was selecting images I would definitely reject that Eagle Owl image. It simply isn't illustrative of an Eagle Owl. They don't land on posts in meadows in England. They live in mountainous areas of Europe and Asia. And personally I don't like the word "footpath" in the picture - it has no relevance to the owl and is a distraction. But perhaps those things don't worry a lot of people. I also tried some book publishers once but none was interested. One said that they loved my photos but couldn't see what the theme for the book would be. I suppose I can unders

    So if I see some interesting wildlife and it's raining and the animal is quite distant so I need to use a long lens, so I know there's no way that I can get a really sharp photo, but I know I can still get an interesting one, I shouldn't take the photo, or what?

    OK, thanks, I have uploaded it. It is pretty sharp. Seems the answer is (d) Keep trying with Alamy but select photos for sharpness rather than composition.

    Thanks very much for all your answers. I've uploaded eight photos to photobucket http://s24.photobucket.com/user/Robert_Ulph/library/?sort=3&page=1, four being the ones I submitted to Alamy and four others which I have selected more for clarity and have labelled "New". There are reduced size versions and cropped samples at 100%. To be honest I don't think they are that much clearer though. All my lenses are IS and I appreciate that that's still not going to compensate for camera shake at 400mm. Of the four photos that I submitted to Alamy only one was taken at 400mm. I didn't use a tri

    Hi I'm a keen travel and wildlife photographer and have a website which I think you can see through my profile. Friends of mine are always looking at my website and saying things like "Wow you've got some really great photos on your website. Are you thinking of turning professional?". I struggle to know what to say to them in reply. The truth is that I submit my photos to agencies such as Alamy and I always get rejected. One person I mentioned this to said "well try again", which I did, but I got nowhere and just wasted more of my time. I have made about GBP300 from a microstock photo
