  1. Great combination of camera and lens...quality and versatility, happy to see that you got what you really wanted..Creative and fun times ahead for you, enjoy.
  2. Firstly congratulations Kumar on your Canon R5 it's a superb camera and you are obviously enjoying the advantages of this new technology... Ahh photography gear, so necessary to take pictures ( yeah i include mobile phones )...but lets's stick to cameras and lenses...Like Chuck i loved the Olympus OM series OM 1 / 2 / 3 and 4..with Zuiko 24 f2 / 100 f2 / 180 f2.8 and so on...Then to Nikon's great offerings...Ok back to the present and i have also bought the Canon R5 after owning and using all the Canon 5D series cameras.I really felt that the Canon 5D3 and 5D4 were the best from
  3. Thanks Michael for your help, much appreciated...I am one of those who hasn't yet mastered this feat of posting an image to the forum thread...I did manage last month and again this month to finally at least post the URL link 😃 Hopefully next month with another sale, i will sing out help and learn to be able to post the pic myself...I am running an iMac with Safari...Cheers Bill
  4. Only one this month...but one beats none eh 😄 Just.. https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-geelong-australia-colourful-painted-buoys-on-the-geelong-waterfront-20897543.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=EE7AAE2F-54FC-4F5F-99E3-AB4D0B5D1B56&p=21217&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%3d%20B5YY0R%26qt_raw%3d%20B5YY0R%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26ot%3d0%26creative%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26pc%3d%26blackwhite%3d%26cutout%3d%26tba
  5. https://www.alamy.com/image-details-popup.asp?Imageid=9C3ED2D7-8337-49A3-861C-019124940473 Well finally paddled into 2021 sales with this opener 😀 A P.U. Sale for $19.99 happy that i got the full price on the image for a change.
  6. Good architectural sale Dom..and a great start to the year, I'm still waiting to open my 2021 ledger 😀
  7. Well done on your sale...that egg is turning into the golden egg...😀 as it looks like it will keep selling for you..nice one
  8. They hurt don't they those pesky inchman ants...In the 15 years that i have been prospecting i have been stung 3 times, and just recently i got my third sting as it crawled up my leg and stung through my jeans near my groin! i had a big itchy lump there for over a week..I always tuck pants into my socks as the first sting i had 15 years ago was where an ant had crawled up my leg and stung me on the calf muscle.. I knock them off my boots and clothing regularly, it's all part of the fun of our great bush 🙄😃
  9. Hi Genevieve, well done on the sale it illustrates the dry conditions...nice one. Now about that brown snake that was too close!, I've come across quite a few while out prospecting in the Victorian Goldfields but i always wear snake gaiters! and long pants and keep a wary eye out for them! We have tiger snakes down here too.. You do realize that you don't have a lot of time if you get bitten, the venom is very fast acting...When i'm out detecting i carry a snake bandage with me just in case, but i hope that i will never have to use it....so Tall grass wear long pants and gaito
  10. I agree with some feedback on how the Australian office is performing...I may be wrong but i feel that Alamy's competitors are doing far better in aquiring sales from Australian image users, as i see far more credits for competitors.I would like to feel that Australian image content can reach and sell in the domestic market, and make more inroads to finding buyers locally..but it is great to know that we do have an office here and that we are in the hunt, and thank you for your efforts.
  11. What a great spot to shoot ships...That's good information you got from that couple...I would certainly be back there...I used access the Port of Melbourne shipping, then depending where the ship was docking i could choose my vantage point..good fun ship chasing..but no ships in Ballarat where i now live....
  12. Nice overview shipping shot Michael...reminds me of Port of Melbourne Docklands, where i used to chase many a container ship coming or going from the port...Really enjoyed photographing ships...Shipping shots made me some big sales....sadly not anymore...but i would still photograph them if i was in the Port area.
  13. Here in Australia i too have noticed Canon's prices rising ..I sold a Canon f4-5.6 100 to 400L ii that i had for 5 years....i actually made money on the resale on eBay..I have bought and sold a few lenses recently on Ebay.If you know what the retail cost is and of course what you are prepared to pay then you can buy very well indeed....You need some luck too in an auction that bidders do not push up the true market value of the lens far too close to new price..( i like to buy mint to new condition ) I have done very well in my purchases.. I too was excited by the new Canon R5 and R
  14. A really nice looking town Charters Towers with lots of old buildings with character Bella ..Yes the gold rushes did wonders for the growth of many towns and cities...I had a look at the town on Google, and and a great Alamy stock shot with your name credited popped up...Anzac Day with soldiers marching in the street.
