  1. They would have given the reason for the failure so check all the images for that flaw. You would want to do that anyway before resubmitting any of them. Always check each image at 100%. It can be very tedious but worthwhile. Paulette
  2. Edo in San Miguel de Allende

    AARP is always doing pieces on where to retire. Here is something on their website .... I think they also have information on retiring abroad. I thought maybe there was one spot on the website to look but it seems you'll have to search and check in several places. Probably just a Google search can come up with things too. All the possibilities are rather mind boggling. Paulette

    Yes. You can see the Angelos’ sign. That’s where the fire was. Sorry to answer for you, Ed. When I first moved to 8th St it was that crowded. Fortunately a bit calmer now though I wouldn’t take an apartment facing the street then or now. Paulette

    I wouldn't have thought your neighborhood was more expensive than Greenwich Village. I was rather shocked yesterday to be charged 75 cents for a banana. In recent memory they were only 25. The wee studios in my building are going for about $2,300 a month. A one bedroom like mine facing the noisy street (I face the garden) went recently for $2,800. So you could move here to a less expensive part of town! Paulette
  5. Keyword advice

    I wouldn't want to encourage copying but if you do a search and look at the images that are already here you'll be able to see what other people are doing. Be careful to remember that a lot of people are over-keywording and anything you put in for your image must be in the image. So use your own judgment but no reason you shouldn't get ideas. Paulette

    The landlord will be able to renovate the apartment and charge a whole lot more than Ed is paying. He may feel that the best time to renovate will be now, when work is already being done on the building. It's hard to know what all the factors are but it is possible that the offer might stand after Ed is back in the apartment. The sure thing is that he can't be forced out. He would have to be lured.... with a good settlement. Paulette
  7. In the Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia, Africa DDTE26 Dead Camelthorn Tree in the salt pan of Dead Vlei, Sossusvlei, Namibia Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, USA EH0WPJ Mama Grizzly and her Spring Cubs walking across the tidal flats of the Cook Inlet, Alaska Not certain if this is part of one of their national parks but it is a protected reserve in the Svalbard Archipelago D0X4MD Thick-Billed Murres or Brunniche's Guillemots on the bird cliffs of Alkefjellet, Hinlopen Strait, Svalbard Archipelago, Norway The last one has lots and lots of birds. An unbelievable sight. This is just a small part of it. Paulette

    Oh my goodness, Ed. This will be a serious change and my nerves would be a mess if I were in your situation. I'm familiar with the type of building you live in here and on the 4th floor. Lots of stairs. I'm only up one flight here and any time I've had a problem with a hip or a knee I realize I might not be able to stay here "forever." So maybe you will find yourself in a place that is an improvement over the old one. Lisbon certainly won't put you through the kind of winter we had here last year. Hope you wind up in a place that makes you very happy! Paulette

  10. Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

    Two sales for me today -- one is a distributor sale for a modest amount but the other is a direct sale for close to $200. Paulette
  11. Infringement claim - UK Small Claims

    I don't know anything about the legalities but a friend of mine who is a writer has told me that authors have to buy the photos for their books. I was surprised but that is apparently how it is usually done. Paulette
  12. Identification of military vehicles - WWII

    They look fine to me too. Sometimes it seems that brightness is a personal taste. When I look at my images on a page with others I sometimes think I should have adjusted exposure differently. Paulette
  13. Backup camera body?

    I go to wild places so I take two of everything possible. I also don’t like to change lenses so work with both cameras. I come home from my trips exhausted. The Sony RX100 goes along for any time spent walking around in towns. Paulette
  14. First milestone reached :)

    You have a good variety too. Keep it up. Paulette
  15. I took a look at your photos and was very intrigued by MF0754. Little children almost hidden in the trunk of an absolutely enormous tree. Your caption is just Sicily. No mention of the children in the keywords. Maybe this is some famous tree or trees but I know nothing about it and I think you could do better with the caption and keywords. I love the image.
