  2. I use HDR Merge occasionally on some of my landscape shots. Using a Canon EOS 70D, I usually set the bracketed exposures to -1.5, 0 and +1.5 A tripod is essential, and care over choice of subject and weather conditions is necessary. For example, if there are trees in leaf in the shot, the slightest breeze will move the leaves and the result of three images combined is that it looks completely out of focus. Where there is something which is moving anyway though, such as a waterfall, that doesn't matter so much. It worked well on this one of Summerhill Force and Gibson's Cave. I usually end up carrying out some final tweaks after the HDR merge.

  4. I know of one in the pipeline which should produce a decent commision shortly because it will probably be for the largest canvas possible from that source, and that one will cover this year's Flickr Pro subscription with change. I regard that as a bonus though and view an annual fee of US$50 as very reasonable for unlimited photos. Its certainly less than I pay for my own website (www.middletonphotos.co.uk). I don't find it particularly laborious and yes it does need to be done one at a time. I tend to upload in very small batches (say 6 at a time max) not least because of my broadband connection speed (about 6mb down, 0.75mb up). I'll upload to the POD site first so I have a unique URL for each image. Having done so, I use the following HTML Code snippet (opened in notepad) to paste in that URL over the top of the bold blue text , then copy and paste the whole thing into the description on Flickr: <a href="INSERT FULL URL TO IMAGE PHOTO4ME" target="_blank"><b>Prints Available</b></a>
  5. I'm one of them. I upgraded to Pro a year or so ago because such accounts allow you to advertise. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mpsimages Almost all the images on there (except those which are screenshots of pictures being used on BBC Look North) have a link to a POD site.
  6. Autumn at High Force Waterfall, Teesdale. I was lucky to get this, thinning high cloud produced diffused bright lighting rather than the usual harsh shadow across the waterfall.
  7. Country: United Kingdom Usage: Editorial Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronic Print run: up to 50,000 Placement: Inside Image Size: 1 page Start: 04 September 2019 End: 04 September 2024 Print run up to 39,000 Reasonable $$ Lingy Hill Farm, Harwood, Upper Teesdale. Funnily enough I'll be up there this weekend so if I see the farmer I'll tell him he's going to be in print. Can somebody give the the correct syntax for reverse image searching please? Love to buy a copy of the magazine if I knew which one to get
  8. Chuckle. There used to be loads of these do the rounds years ago, incl one of my favourites: Error: Keyboard Not Found press any key to continue
  9. Had a couple of very small sales in recent months, but today I see this River Tees panorama sold for $260. I've put a call in to my yacht broker in Bermuda telling him I want an upgrade 😀 Country: Texas Usage: Indoor display Media: Trade show/promotional display Industry sector: Entertainment & Leisure Print run: 1 Image Size: up to 1/8 area Start: 25 May 2019 End: 25 May 2022
  10. Panoramic view (3 shots) of remains of 12th century Barnard Castle, in the town of the same name, Teesdale, UK
  11. One of my favourite spots in Teesdale - an unnamed waterfall on Ettersgill Beck
  12. Nice one Bryan. Never an easy subject this one as you're almost always shooting into the sun. Good amount of water coming down as well. One of mine taken in summer conditions:
  13. First sale! This actually showed up in a search a couple of weeks ago so I was pleasantly surprised to see a sale showing when I checked this morning. On the strength of this, and in anticiption of untold future riches which are undoubtedly heading my way, I have: opened negotiations with a yacht broker in the Bahamas warned Mark Carney of a possible need to adjust UK interest rates ditto Sterling/Dollar exchange rates well - dreaming can't hurt can it!

  14. Until this recently announced change, a free Flickr account came with an incredible amount (1tb!) of space and it seems from comments on their forum that a lot of pople were taking full advantage of it. Thats an awful lot of hi-res video or large tiff files! Can't say I blame them for wanting to prune that right back. To get unlimited space its now going to be US$50 per year for a "Pro" account which seems pretty cheap to me.
