  1. Outside the building, preferably not on the premises, I've never had a problem. I've taken a couple of pics of Federal courthouses, where Secret Service agents were present, and got no objections. I didn't push my luck by taking their pics, however. In any case where security is present, just be sure not to fail the attitude test. Michael North Carolina
  2. People think it's easy living in a swamp.
  3. An Irish (I assume) Lass in downtown Charlotte (NC) St. Patrick Day festival. ===== Ah! Was called out by a very earnest fellow. I didn't think to ask if I had to commit all these sins, or if only one was sufficient. They were in front of a kind of beer garden (actually a packed parking lot), so I assume he was concentrating on drunkenness. He obviously has no Irish blood.
  4. I use Ghostery and UBlock Origin, both add-ons in my browser, which is Firefox (mostly).
  5. I just posted this on the 'suggestions' forum: "Now that Alamy is making a clearer distinction of images available only here, it only makes sense, imo, to have that information available on the sales page. Is work being done to make this improvement?" If "available only on Alamy" has any worth at all in promoting sales, it needs to be included in data about the image. If Alamy doesn't make that improvement, it may indicate that they don't believe that it does. It could also mean that they would rather discourage those sales, because of the higher commission paid to us. Let us hope that is not the case. Michael
  6. Now that Alamy is making a clearer distinction of images available only here, it only makes sense, imo, to have that information available on the sales page. Is work being done to make this improvement? Thanks, Michael
  7. Damn! I have no talent for this. So obvious, and yet I missed it. Michael
  8. Thanks for the replies, folks. I am late in responding because Firefox suddenly decided to kill the functionaliity of the sign-in button of the Alamy sign in page, and it took me awhile to figure out what was wrong. Yes, my problem was with a capitalizaed "People" in the keyword list---which I normally pay no attention to, and had actually forgot it existed. I edited "People" to "people" and all is well. Thanks. Now, if I can solve the dead sign-in button in Firefox, I'll have had a successful day. Really prefer it (most of the time) to Chrome.
  9. Thanks. The keyword function will only allow one entry of either a capitalized or uncapitalized word, but will allow one of each. That made me suspect that it might matter.
  10. I use Lightroom for keywording, and for some bizarre reason it capitalizes the word "people" without my consent. Does anyone know if the Alamy search algorithm distinguishes capitalized from non-capitalized words?
  11. I fooled myself. It was a bald cypress, and thanks to you all for the info. I'm (somewhat) familiar with the species, as in this pic (below)I took in the Suwanee River in Florida, but didn't expect to see one on the edge of a parking lot in an industrial park in piedmont NC at 1000 ft. elevation. Thanks for all your help.
  12. Any ideas for the larger tree in front?
  13. Thanks, Allen. Way too much trouble to PS out. Complex background. Buildings are local, will just shoot them again when I'm nearby.
