  1. Veteran's cemetery in St. Catharines, Ontario. Personal Use sale reported on on Sunday.
  2. I also have a similar number of images, and a similar number of sales so far this year (as Thyrsis). Nearly all of my images are RM, maybe that has something to do with it. All my sales except one this year has been RM. Just a guess.
  3. Interesting theory but not supported by my results either. June was really good last year, but this year I didn't have any June sales until one yesterday.
  4. I use DNG converter for my Raw files for my current cameras because my ACR software is out of date (as in my operating system, etc, etc). I don't convert the whole batch to DNGs, I usually look through them and select the most promising ones to be converted ( a small subset). Once I've manipulated the DNG file in ACR, I save it as a TIFF to use for further editing and eventually a jpg for submission. So I always keep the original RAW or DNG file that hasn't been manipulated.
  5. Getting a first sale is exciting, but 4 at once, well done, congrats!
  6. With 5 sales, May was 5 times better than April! The best one was a distributor sale.
  7. That's great to hear! Thanks for posting about it. Maria
  8. This was part of a news submission from 5 years ago. Sold today (Saturday) for media/website use.
  9. I decided to try the sony A6000 because of the image quality. I ordered it with the kit lens but plan to upgrade it once I'm sure I like the camera. Will still keep my rx100 M1 to use when I want a really small camera. Yippee, new gear!
  10. This is me! I see myself in both of your posts Betty. What a fun thread, thanks Mr Standfast!
  11. When you've been postponing decluttering and getting rid of some old junk in case it might make a good stock photo.
  12. I received the email as well, and I'm glad to now have archival/reportage access. It is timely because I just prepped a couple of images yesterday based on a recent customer's search. A couple of my live news images from 2015 had been zoomed several times. There are almost no other images in alamy's library on that topic so I decided to go back to my files and work on a couple more from that shoot. But I was hesitant to submit them to QC because the sharpness is reduced because of the conditions at that time. Now I have a way to submit them without worrying about QC. Maria
