  1. Like Ian, my traffic lights are on green to go and to carry on submitting Live News images. My main Live News images are from political events with some UK weather. The email points out to ensure that each batch of images (15 of the best) have the correct headlines & captions (headlines & Description in lightroom), date, time and aim to have them filed within one hour. My headlines and captions are pre-written and added to each image or batch after they have been culled and edited there by saving time. Sometimes it is difficult to stop shooting and upload your images because things do kickoff like the letter dropping on P.M. May's display or Jeremy Corbyn egg attack.
  2. Thanks Paulette for picking one of my images. I think its going to be a close horse race. Alan

  15. STOP ALL SHOPPING . Only 7 days left for the December challenge, so keep sending more excellent imges of converging lines. Alan
  16. So there may be bad weather on the way and heavy snow every day you may have the Brexit blues and have holes in your shoes but do not forget to have a tipple and smile a little just what my friends below would say. Alan
  17. This is my setup when away. MacBook Pro 13inch. 2Ghz Intel Core i5, 8GM ram and 251 GB flash storage. Small, light weight and well built. Run a 27in mac in the office but have no problem post processing images on the 13in screen. Runs LR 6.13 as smooth as silk even when processing large files from the D850. When out doing Live News with no wifi I seamless connect the mac to the iphone to upload images to Alamy. A bit expensive but very reliable. Push the boat out Southpole you only live once and Christmas is around the corner. Alan.
  18. I know alot of you have things on your mind at the moment regarding 50% to 40% reduction in the fees that you will receive and also here in Britain the continues debate on Brexit but life must go on. Only 14 days left for the December challenge, so keep sending more excellent imges of converging lines. Alan
  19. Thanks Colin. I shall try it later on. Alan
  20. Some great images being posted, keep them coming. At the end of December I shall have to decide the images that you will vote for. Where do you obtain the voting table? Alan
  21. I had in my mind to have a Christmas theme for this months challenge and how best to show this festive season in your selected images. Bah Humbug some may say but not this year. My theme for December is Converging Lines. There are plenty of fine examples of Converging Lines on the internet, some are man made others are in the natural environment. They do not have to be straight lines, you can have curves, spirals etc or even the shape of the landscape. Normal rules - each contender can provide up to 3 images, all to be from Alamy; BUT; as I am away at the end of December, the closing date for entries will be Midnight on Tuesday 25th and all votes in by the 30th. Example of my take on this theme are shown below. Lets see some excellent images, but remember to have a great Christmas. Alan.
