  3. If they have a preference for either RF and RM, surely they would do a single search, unless maybe the subject is a rare one?
  4. Well done on this photo. It really grabs you. Echoes of dreadful history, and a reminder that history is not a closed chapter.
  5. John, in my case too the number of searches that specify RM or RF is very small - 39 out of 2000, or just under 2 per cent. I agree that this is the most important statistic.
  6. I recall a forum thread a while back in which (besides carrying on the eternal debate about the pros and cons of RM and RF), it was said that Alamy prefers RF because this is increasingly what clients want. This has stayed at the back of my mind, and I thought it should be possible to test how true this is by counting the number of searches in Alamy Measures that specify RM and RF. AM appears not to provide any information other than the search terms on all-of-Alamy searches, so I went to my own most important pseudonym and looked up searches from 1st January to 30th June this year. I stopped counting after 100 pages of search results. Here are the results: Searches that specify RM or RF RM: 25 searches RF: 14 searches Distribution of RM and RF in pseudonym RM: 95% RF: 5%. The results should be treated with a lot of caution. First of all, number of searches that specify RM or RF is very small and more data might change the picture. Secondly, most of the images under this pseudonym are RM and this probably skews the results. I used only one pseudonym because my pseudonyms aren't subject-exclusive so a lot of searches show up in more than one. Thirdly, results are also likely to vary by subject matter. But if more forum members were willing to chip in with their own figures, we might build up a more general picture.
  7. Two entries from me: 1. Aerobatics at dusk 2. Clifftop conversations
  8. You could have written this bit about me But the HX90V comes nowhere near a DSLR in image quality. To see the difference, compare images at full size and look at how well each camera renders fine detail.
  9. Lovely shots. I'm heading to Ireland tomorrow as it happens - to walk part of the Kerry Way. Won't be submitting any stock from this trip though - I don't carry an Alamy-compatible camera on walking holidays abroad.

  11. This one looks maybe a tad dark, but all the same it's a beautiful shot. Hope it sells.
