  1. A good example of converging lines and framing to focus your eyes on the distant figure. Alan
  2. Like you Betty, 3 sales for me this morning. I'am on a roll, I hope. Alan
  3. Liverpool's one man band. Just putting on my makeup. Great safety jacket for this type of work.
  4. I must be doing something wrong, I'am still alive. Never mind I've still time to take more great images. Alan
  5. A portriat of Jeremy Corbyn leader of the British Labour Party. The lighting from a side window increasing the texture and depth in the face, just the classic hollywood portriat i.e. from "left to right' , light to dark to light and then dark. The reflection in the table top also helps the overall compostion of the image. Aaln
  6. Micheal, we all make mistakes, the heat of the moment or a sudden reaction to events like the image below, but the movment in this politicians arms increase the drama of the image 1\125s at f11. The two images below have been deliberately shot out of focus in a series of images I have done to show how photography can interpet the great French impressionist. So Micheal, blur, on out focus, etc, its the final image that counts and the customer, but remember each image is an evolution of your last. All the best Alan
  7. Just dropped into my account this morning, up by 77% from last year. This relates to the increase in sales so far this year. Alan
  8. Where young lovers meet, the Triton Fountains, Valletta, Malta. Alan
  9. Canada geese crossing a frozen lake using a nikon D2X taken a few years ago. Now using a D5 in which the quality of the images are light years ahead the images from the D2X are still selling well.
  10. Bingo, it works. Thanks gvallee, spacecadet and John, have a drink on me. No.97 Sir Antony Gormley cast iron figure on Crosby beach, Liverpool. The other bulge is not his left hand. Alan
  11. gvallee, i've tried your suggestion but still no joy. I will just carry on with what I normally do. Thanks all the same. Another sold this month. Juvenile Peregrine falcon at rest standing on a cliff rock on the coast of north Pembrokeshire. Alan
  12. Ignore the above post. I've made a cockup in pasting the image. Still working on it. Alan
  13. https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-juvenile-peregrine-falcon-at-rest-standing-on-a-cliff-rock-on-the-38136293.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid=8A0D8356-B95C-4D99-988C-F5CA7A3B8A36&p=53555&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%%3dC6176D%26qt_raw%3dC6176D%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26ot%3d0%26creative%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26pc%3d%26blackwhite%3d%26cutout%3d%26tbar%3d1%26et%3d0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3d0%26loc%3d0%26imgt%3d0%26dtfr%3d%26dtto%3d%26size%3d0xFF%26archive%3d1%26groupid%3d%26pseudoid%3d%26a%3d%26cdid%3d%26cdsrt%3d%26name%3d%26qn%3d%26apalib%3d%26apalic%3d%26lightbox%3d%26gname%3d%26gtype%3d%26xstx%3d0%26simid%3d%26saveQry%3d%26editorial%3d1%26nu%3d%26t%3d%26edoptin%3d%26customgeoip%3dGB%26cap%3d1%26cbstore%3d1%26vd%3d0%26lb%3d%26fi%3d2%26edrf%3d%26ispremium%3d1%26flip%3d0
  14. Please help. I normally upload images for example "images sold in October" by clicking onto the images and using "copy image address", then paste it into this box but it is always smaller than the image above. So whats the secret in uploading a large image like the one above with the chain and cross. Alan
  15. Try a different way of looking at things. Sir Antony Gormley cast iron figures on Crosby Beach, Liverpool. Alan
  16. Just tried the new AIM select, copy and paste and it works a treat. Very useful when copying archive tags, make me quite.
  17. I know its political. Emily Thornberry Labour M.P. at the Labour Party annual conference 2018 in Liverpool, but I feel that an image should try to portray the event or moment of that time and have a strong message. Alan
  18. Honey bee (Apis) with pollen sac collecting necta from a Snowdrop flower. Alan
  19. Jeremy Corbyn Leader of the Labour Party at a local event. This and another image from the same event popped up this morning. Alan
  20. My Damsons have been attacked . No Damson gin this year. But this grub makes a great image and as been sold twice this month. Alan
  21. Dave , I have the same problem with family holidays, local walks or visits. You could end up just snatching images then moving on, not the best way because of the time constraints. I like to spend some time studying the subject and taking images from different angles or waiting for that right moment. Try to be free and that is when the best images are produced. All the best. Alan
