  1. I had 8 for $107 gross, above average number for September. I also had two PU's refunded, one 22 days after sale and the other 106 days!
  2. 13 for $232. This is quite good for numbers, but prices ain't what they used to be. August is usually a good month for me, in 2008 I had 20 sales. . .
  3. I had 10 for $375 gross, good for me, especially in these troubled times - Thanks Alamy. . . . I had a PU sale, image of a bucket of hand wipes at a supermarket. Sold June 10th. Refunded June 24th, Sold again June 23rd, refunded 29th. So presuming both sales were to the same customer, they had it for 20 days and neither Alamy or I got anything. . . I do not mind PU - I licence quite a lot of them and they nearly pay as much as newspapers these days. . .
  4. 8 sales in April. Average over the previous five Aprils was 11. I wonder whether this is good or bad in these unusual times?
  5. Thanks for that info about the use of my image of the James Cook Hospital. I am currently being treated at the hospital and I have had four appointments there in the last month. All were dealt with on time and with the greatest courtesy. That is until today when I went there for an operation to be carried out. The politeness, skill, and care were all there, but unfortunately they had to send me home because they had no bed available. . .
  6. This has been a poor year so far but July was better with 10 licences. My average for July over the last 8 years is 8.3. Prices ain't what they used to be. . ..
  7. Well, no it is OK in quite heavy rain, but I would not try to immerse it. : :
  8. I have a couple of Olympus cameras with waterproof lenses, but a cheaper option, which I also have, is a Sony RX10 (Mk1) IQ is like an RX100 M2. Handling is very good, it is laid out like a proper camera used to be. Only downside, from switching on to getting the zoom extended is slower than I would like. ..
  9. An interesting thread, and now I find I have some work to do. I have about 200 images on a POD site where many, but not all of which, also are on Alamy. All of my Alamy images are RM. I do not have any other Stock agencies, so all my Alamy images are marked "exclusive". The POD site only sells as finished prints. The commission paid per sale on the POD site is equivalent to an Alamy licence at $30 gross. It seems to me that for the Alamy images which appear on the POD site, I could either exclude them from PU, or untick the ""Exclusive " box. Any suggestions as to which I should do would be appreciated.
  10. Four for $82 not good for me. Last time I only had four in June was in 2011. . .
  11. Just for the record, CS sorted me out! The sale was reported on the forum on 2 Jun 2018. In fact the sale had been reported in May 2016, so I was paid in the year the book was published. Peter
  12. I reported this to CS, who replied as follows: I’ve taken a look and can see that there is a valid license in place for the usage you have seen. The license was reported and was displayed in your Alamy account on the 25th May 2016. Checking my sales, it had not appeared, as I had nothing between the 8th and 29th May. I have asked them to check again. In case anyone is in the same situation, here is the original list posted by SShep: Following are all from Hidden Histories by Mary-Ann Ochota.

  13. I have sent the details to CS, and will advise their response
  14. OK I will contact them, and I have a document listing all the other Alamy images. I will attach that for their information . .
  15. Back on the 2nd June in the “Have you found….” thread SSHEP posted a list of some 55 images from a book called Hidden Histories by Mary-Ann Ochota. ISBN: 978-0-7112-3693-6., for which I thank him. One of the images was mine, and I was wondering about asking CS to chase up payment. I do not know the current Alamy practice, but I do know they like to allow some reasonable time before chasing customers. Is it maybe 6 months? Out of interest, I decided to buy the book, and in fact found it an interesting source of information concerning things to shoot in the country. I checked and the publication date is 2016. Far from being a customer that has not got round to making payment yet, he has been using our images for two years now. Should I contact CS?
  16. For March, I had 10 licences for $202 gross I am unhappy with low prices this year. My previous lowest annual average price per licence was $32. This year so far it is $23.
  17. Kay, Yes, thank you for that. Most other bat box types seem to have a bottom entry slot, and a larger box shaped cavity further up. I was wondering what happened inside this Kent box, whether the two entries combined to give a wider space further up. But if so, why have two slots instead of one? In the link you sent, the picture showing the view through the entry slots tells the story. The slots are the same width all the way up. Those bats are really tiny. I will add "Kent" to my tags. Thanks again, Peter
  18. Alan et al, I have had a look at another image, looking on the front of the box from slightly below. The outer two pairs of planks have a gap in the inner one, giving two entrances. I will upload that image next time. A bat box it is. Thanks for your help. And shame on me for not noticing the entrances. Peter
  19. Alan, You sound very positive about this, but these things were not high up and I could look at them quite closely, and I could not see any hole where any animal could enter. Are you suggesting that one of the shorter lengths of wood has a hole in the bottom? I have some other images, that may show this. I will have a look. Peter
  20. Russel, John, No, they are no kind of box at all. Five vertical planks of three different lengths, and another piece of wood on top, like a fence post cap. Things put out like this are usually for monitoring some aspect of the environment, but these seem to be plain softwood with no obvious coating. Peter
  21. In some woodland along the North Yorkshire Coast, I found wooden things that superficially look like bird boxes but are not. I would like to know what they are for, so I can make a meaningful caption. I will try to insert an image, but if I fail , please see M9MG27 or M9MG28. Thanks, Peter
  22. I was out this morning, but my QC status, 3* anytime upload, had been reinstated when I got home. Thanks Alamy for sorting it out. Peter
  23. Update: I e-mailed CS late last evening, querying the failure. So far, I have not had an answer to that mail, but at 9:23 this morning the submission was passed. Relax all you RX users... So far, I am still knocked down to 1* and locked out for another 9 days. I expect that will get fixed today. Peter
  24. Hmn, but if I did query it, I might get all you other RX100 users wiped out as well. I am also assuming that if the RX100 is unsuitable the RX10 is unsuitable also. You know what they say about "assume" - It makes an ass of you, and an ass of me. Nevertheless as the sensor size and image process ing is the same as the RX100ii, it is a fair assumption to make.
