  1. My take on the blurry train theme: Wish I could have gotten more blur on this one, but I was shooting handheld: I had only a moment to shoot this and the autofocus locked on the birds not the plane, but with hindsight I'm glad it did:
  2. Great shot indeed. Thanks again for the replies. I'm checking to see what the rules (if any) are locally.
  3. Flying under that bridge looks like a pretty hairy stunt ... can't imagine that the pilot did it more than once!
  4. Thanks for the replies. Sets my mind at rest. Incidentally, the photo I posted isn't mine. It's by Yurii Zushchyk. I wanted to illustrate the aircraft type but I don't have any of my own shots of it online yet. Yes it would be interesting sitting in that nose when the plane is airborne ... but I agree, not if it's in a dive!
  5. At an airshow recently I got a shot of an Antonov An-30, a cargo plane with an old-fashioned glass nose. Could have been this very aircraft: My shot is a close-up from the nose from directly ahead. The aircraft was open to the public at the time and what I did not realise as I took my shot was that a boy had sat down in the nose seat. It takes you a moment to realise he's there, but his face is clearly visible through the central window. I got another shot from the same angle with the seat empty, but the shot with the boy in it has more impact: he provides a focal point
  6. BBC Future - How Flying Seriously Messes with Your Mind - 19 September 2017 (http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20170919-how-flying-seriously-messes-with-your-mind) EW7AFG, Stefano Politi Markovina, Interior view of the economy class section of the Qatar Airways Airbus A350-900 B0HCP2, imageBROKER, Inflight entertainment program, in-flight program selection Both are credited to Alamy only. There are two more Alamy photos that I couldn't identify: a close-up of two wine bottles in ice and a shot of a woman sleeping on an airplane seat.
  7. If you mean Windows File Explorer, the file should still show up regardless of the format. Odd. Can't think of any explanation I'm afraid.
  8. Sometimes I use it to add background information that might be useful to the viewer, especially if it brings out the relevance to the photo of a particular keyword where this might not be obvious from the photo itself.
  9. Thanks all for the feedback. You've been very helpful. Looks like the RX100 is the favourite.
  10. Thanks for the suggestions. I haven't been following developments in the mirrorless field and I wasn't aware that mirrorless cameras come in such a range of sizes. Still, even short lenses stick out too far on mirrorless cameras to make them a practical proposition for me. I need something that I can truly keep in a pocket (or in a hip pouch on my backpack). Andy, how does the G7 perform when shooting landscapes at 24mm? Do you find the quality acceptable?
  11. Thanks for the replies so far. TABan, you're right - the Fuji X100 is too big for me. The Canon G7 is an interesting alternative to the RX100 though I gather from reviews that the RX100 has a better quality lens. I wonder: does anybody use the Canon S100/120 or the Panasonic DMC-LF1? Neither one is on Alamy's unsuitable camera list though the S100 has been around since 2011 and the DMC-LF1 since 2013.
  12. I'm a long-time contributor to Alamy though I've been away from this forum for a few years. I normally use a pair of Canon DSLRs. At the moment, however, I'm kitting myself out for some hiking and camping trips and my gear is already up to 13 kilos not including camera gear. I need to cut back on what I already have and adding a DSLR is out of the question. At the same time I'd like to take a camera with me, and it would be nice if it was good for Alamy, but it would need to be as compact as possible. Even a Canon G16 is too bulky for me. So my question is: what is the lightest and most compac
