  1. Also this Cornwall in summer - People tourists sitting on bench overlooking harbour and beach seaside in St Ives, Cornwall, England, UK in the summer season - Image ID: EY7F4J incamerastock
  2. probably, but another thread suggested a possibility to me. If one were at say, an olde worldly heritage type event, should Live News images always be in colour? Of course B&W can be a post processing transformation strictly speaking not allowed, but it could also be something done in camera. I am anticipating that the answer is that they should always be in colour.
  3. Fascinating. Taken by my Dad from an ocean liner. I will have to ask him if he was trying to emulate Andreas Feininger. Those were the days, when people took 5 days to cross the Atlantic instead of a few hours.
  4. My archive images are doing well. Another sold today for PU, but at US rather than the usual U.K. rate. I bet this view of Manhattan doesn’t look the same, now.
  5. 50 is very good. I have around 40 within the last 12 months. Lots of others that were used immediately after the 2 day live news period.
  6.

  7. There seem to be an awful lot of very non-news images from dpa contributors appearing in the live news feed. Is this usual or is something new going on?
  8. I had some fun trying my hand at some sports photography on a wet weekend at the exciting River Tay canoe slalom at Grandtully.
  9. That hasn't happened on any of mine uploaded over the weekend.
  10. I was surprised to find I had some photos on this theme 1. Four female police officers helping a lost girl during the Edinburgh Festival 2. A woman getting tattoos 3. A female equestrian stunt rider at a Medieval jousting display, Linlithgow Palace
  11. This is true. I would never have progressed to where I am now without the open live news option to give me a start.
  12. This wasn’t a Live News use since it was uploaded on March 26th. It is a stock use.
  13. Makes up for two refunds which put me into negative payment. I was asked to lift my restriction on sales to Russia for this one. Editorial $$
  14. A few from The Times, sorry it’s just not up to Bryan’s standard. Jordi De Rueda Roigé T0N1B0 New York City, USA - July 28, 2018: Facade of the Le Parker Meridien New York Hotel and the Viceroy Central Park New York in 57th Street with people a Rolandas Misius J15MK8 Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain: Basicila and Expiatory Church of the Holy Family, known as Sagrada Familia Scotland section ScotRail platform, looks like Waverley but can’t find it Ed Brown T1EGBC Hailsham, UK. 26th Mar, 2019.

  15. I fully understand the sentiments and views of those who have had their privilege revoked. However these “everyday” weather pics sell, and sell by the cart load. Just take a look at The Sun or Mail, even the Times publishes weather pictures. Yes, the quality is sometimes somewhat dubious. But if that’s what the papers want, and they sell within the Live News period, they command much higher prices. A stock sale of $5-10 is very different than a news sale of $50-150. So, yes they are ‘News’ whether we like it or not.
  16. Literally, yes. I’m sure it’s not what was being looked for though. Yes, man in a high castle with an opening.
  17. The guidelines are not new. The email sent was a reminder of them .
  18. A good example of how keywording can throw up images that have nothing to do with the search. Someone searched yesterday for ‘Man in High Castle Opening’ presumably the TV series It turned up only one image, mine with.....man....high wall......castle....window opening.
  19. Ok, cheers. New tax year will be a good time.
  20. Ditto, and mine was also of an animal.
  21. It just happened. All I was sent was an email to tell they had closed the case. Weird how they can do that. Will no doubt bite that cherry soon.
  22. Pleased to report that Adobe have done something at their end and the annoying problem is fixed. I can put off biting the bullet for a little longer
