  1. Felt compelled to reply, in order to qualify for my pedantry license. 1) It's not 'a Latin language', it's Latin. 2) Biggus Dickus is not Latin, it's Python. In absentia lucis, Tenebrae vincunt. P.s. I didn't use a bad word.
  2. No, not Valentia Island, Cork Opera House (a band on stage). I looked at the Culture Trip website, but I haven't found it, yet.
  3. Good question. The short answer is, no. The slightly protracted answer is...I considered it but having sent them 2 other messages in the last 10 days, both of which were ignored, I didn't think it would be worth the effort and came to the forum instead.
  4. Thanks. Usually, I just adopt a Tabula Rasa and accept the pricing, but I felt that this was such a Nota Bene that I should Carpe Diem and ask about it. My 'mean' sales amount this month, so far, is $17. Highest $60 and lowest $3.07. Quid Nunc!
  5. It's bad enough that in my 16 years with Alamy, I've seen my sales drop to near non existent and their fees tumble to 'micro-stock' level. Now, I find that 2 sales with similar uses have different fees attached. In fact, the lower fee has the phrase 'in perpetuity', which in my view should command a higher fee. Any thoughts on why this might be?

  6. Just tried another (single) image. Passed QC in approximately 20 seconds! So far, I've not had random wait times since I got 5 stars. I doubt there will be any greyed out stars. Previously, it was only ever 3 stars, then jumped to 5. Live News should go through immediately, otherwise, it would be yesterday's news.
  7. Then there are a lot of silly contributors; choosing to fail their own images, after upload.
  8. I'm doubting that " f5.6 is right on the edge before diffraction" with that lens. But, you may be right. However, unless you've seen it, then I wouldn't worry about it. Don't believe everything you read in the photo press. (I say that as Associate Editor of a fairly well-known UK camera magazine. )
  9. With a maximum aperture of f2.8? I doubt it. Anyway, it's working for me - the 30-odd sales and 100% QC passess (and a 5* QC rating) would testify to that.
  10. Just got an email from Alamy saying response times from QC will be slower over Christmas. I tried an upload (1 image) and checked it, 3 minutes later. It had passed. Go figure!
