  1. Yes, this poor child radiated loneliness and discomfort. His guitar was taped with masking tape. He was out there every day.
  2. It seems as if the online digital services mentioned here are all based in the UK. There is a printer near me that I used to make business cards once, so I can try them, but I think they only do bulk runs. But isn't going through a lab a hassle, when you can just print at home? I'm not looking for professional quality, per se, I just want to print and play with photos for my own enjoyment. I'm currently looking at a Canon TS9520 all-in-one that allows for occasional 11x17 prints that I can use as a home office printer too. But reviews are mixed.
  3. I used to be on film festival committees, lots of them. I felt like the best works almost always rose to the top and the weak ones fell to the bottom. There was general consensus. I think it's different with photos. They are more subjective and there are far fewer clear markers around what makes them objectively good and bad. The Alamy forum is full of people with good eyes, skills, and tastes. So it does surprise me often what gets chosen. And yet, you can detect when someone has really put some work into it from their selection. So I would argue that judging/selecting
  4. Your photo is so "everyday" and yet there's something about it that is so compelling. The emotion, a feeling of comfort.
  5. I do that too, go through and choose my eight, when I have time. It's so mysterious how and what people choose. That art of curation is intangible.
  6. I love your choices, even if I feel like maybe I would have chosen a whole different group. Each one of these draws me in and makes me think. Thanks for giving them the careful eye.
  7. Well, the crown lasted about thirty years, so it was a good run. It was getting discolored and my gum had receded so you could see the dark dead root of the tooth underneath and it was not attractive. Teeth talk. ðŸĪŠ Elizabeth Warren is the only politician I know who even MENTIONS dental. Prices are out of control.
  8. Best month for me ever with my small portfolio. Three sales for a total gross of $155, all direct sales. 👍 But are you all quoting $ as in American $ ?
  9. Sounds like a bargain! My crown was done well and looked perfect (hard for a front tooth!) but the assistants were super clumsy. I had to have the crown redone a couple years ago and paid my dentist the grand sum. Also with the dental school, I had to go back multiple times and it took hours and hours, which was almost impossible for me to handle because I had a job.
  10. I had a crown on my front tooth done at a dental school once, and will not be repeating that experience. 🙂
  11. For price tags like $60,000, it seems you could do your research, find a reputable dentist, take a month-long vacation in Mexico to get the work done and recover, and fly back multiple times for follow up work... for a fraction of the price it would cost in the USA.
