  1. I do think you are over analysing the situation. In the given image only the photographer can know what the shadow represents truly or if it is a 3rd party then the photographer should know if that person has any chance of recognising themselves from that photo. Otherwise i really wouldnt worry
  2. Interesting, I have just had some of my images removed with the same NR statement. The thing is mine were taken from the public highway, absolutely 100%, I have replied to Image management with a google street view 'proof' and also stated I will gladly meet NR on site to prove it, at thier expense if I am correct. I await my image re-instatement.
  3. Thank you both NYCat - Great, that's the bit that wasn't clear, cheers
  4. Perhaps somebody could explain the meaning of this to me I have sales from October listed as balance carried forward and yet my cleared balance from earlier is below the payment threshold. When does the balance carried forward become cleared balance and when can I expect payment?
  5. I was going to ask a question in a seperate thread but this seems to cover the same subject so will ask here hopefully without hijacking the original question. What do you find the best way to paste the image into Google Images or Tineye? Given that the original files are huge and I dont want to create low res versions just to search given the workload. So far I have copied onto desktop and then dragged into google, but this is laborious and there must be a better (proper) way to do this?
  6. One issue recently with Finnair, travelling on International flights, cabin luggage 10kgs limit, domestic flights cabin luggage 8 kgs limit. This defies logic to me, don't they consider passengers arriving at Helsinki may want to transfer without throwing 2kgs away?
  7. I should have mentioned its only for RM. Appreciate now it needs to go as not having release. Thanks
  8. Hi Ian Well it could be any branded object but in my case was a product shot of a bottle of whisky, so undoubtedly identifiable.
  9. Sorry if this has been asked before, but if you have a shot of a commercial product that you own, as you own the product but not the brand would you select property release as required or not?
  10. It appears that I did add apostrophies at some point thinking I was wrapping a phrase as you can with the "quotation mark". Incorrect though that may be they have altered from when I inputted. Fortunately not too many as I will have to re-do them. Thanks for the link, I have read it before but useful to see again. Thanks
  11. I have just noticed that many of my images have apostrofies in the keywords like this ', autumn, autumnal, britain', cloud, cloudy, dale, dales, dales', dawn, 'derbyshire, district', I have no idea why thy are like that, it is certainly not how I typed them, do you think this is affecting my views?
  12. my last batch took about 4 days to get the pass, made me think it was a fail as they have all been next day for ages now so after 48 hours I was sure I had my first fail in a long time, but not so happily. 30 days is a long time
  13. A couple of years ago I was in North Wales aiming to photograph from the Nantille Ridge at dawn. On the way climbing alone in pitch dark I had to cross a boulder field which follows the ridge and is almost vertical on one side. The boulders were as slippy as ice and the climb became lethal. So, I started to move down lower on the safer side to a grassy area. I had a heavy pack on my back and as I made my way steeply downhill and very carefully due to the slippy nature I did indeed slip and fall forward. Putting my arm out in instinctive defence it went down a hole between the boulders and I we
  14. Most of you will have noticed a lot of windows updates recently? Most of these I am informed are preparing your machine for Windows 10. (Whether you want it or not )
  15. As above really, a sensor loupe I find essential to see the dust and the effect of any swabbing. The first time I tried I made a real mess of it with a new D800 until I realised it was oil spots and not dust (D800 issue) and then needed the visible dust orange swabs with fluid for oil. Otherwise use the green swabs. Make sure you buy the right size for your sensor. I have one of the ultrasonic brushes but not found it very useful to be honest. More often than not I use the swab dry but occasionally use the fluid and then follow it up with a dry one to clear any smearing. Only ever use a swab
  16. Though probably safer than macro shots of bears which is equally not impossible?
  17. I probably did, but I think this was because they re appeared as needing more info so I added info and re submited. May be me or it may be a glitch, who should I contact at Alamy to inform?
  18. To add to this, have just checked my on sale images and they appear in there as well, with duplicate copies. One copy is keyworded and with attributes and the other copy has no data
  19. I have had a few images recently that have been uploaded via the news feed. They then move into mange images and I have keyworded and added attributes and saved. They have then appeared as on sale. Later however they re appeared as not ready, so I re-keyworded and added the attributes. This morning 3 images (which were a complete batch) have appeared as more detail required, when I open the files there are no keywords or attributes set at all, completely blank? Has anyone else experienced this?
  20. It looks a bit like a modern version of a structure for drying wood and/or hay. You get old wooden versions in Eastern Europe and I have seen structures a bit like this in Finland where agriculture is still often small scale between clearings in the trees?
  21. So is there any advantage in using an FTP client when (on Windows 7) you can just use explorer for ftp?
  22. I would echo Lynne, I hardly use it now on the Fuji X or the D4s, on the D300s and the D800 (at higher ISO's) I used it a bit. It is easy to use if you go with the presets which is all I ever did as I couldnt be bothered to learn to use the sliders effectively I think if you use it at higher settings than light then you may have issues getting through QC on Alamy. If I use it, I tend to layer mask and remove it on critical sharp areas like eyes etc.
  23. I use it, Denoise 5. Not reglarly as noise has not been too much of an issue lately. I think its pretty good though I have nothing to compare it with really
  24. I don't have any RF images, but there is an RF agency who also begins with S but only has one word and it guarantees a minimum of $10 per sale I believe.
