    Photography, of course. Reading, I like a good sci-fi novel. Other than that it's a good drama on the telly or a good film.

  1. 3 for just under $16 gross. Views are still doing better than last year and my zooms, which had disappeared in the first 3 months, came back strongly with 8, the most I've ever had in a month for my modest portfolio, so CTR back to where it was at the start of the year. Now I just need some of them to convert into sales in the next few months. I can but dream.
  2. 2 for $64. On the plus side, from the start of the year my views have been running at 40% higher than this period last year. But (and there's always a but) my zooms have been 30% less which is now beginning to eat into what has been a pretty stable and decent CTR - now 0.58, down from 0.73 at the start of the year.
  3. And finally I'm up and running. First sale of the year. Usage: Single company - multiple educational editorial use only. Mid $$.
  4. Had the same happen to me in May. 2 sales of the same picture, on the same day, with the same license details, each for $245. I immediately thought it was a mistake and spent the next 45 days expecting one of them to be refunded. But it didn't happen, the images were paid for, and I got one of my best pay days in my short time here. And just recently I've had 3 sales of the same picture, on the same day, with the same license details, though this time for only $7 each. So it seems to happen quite often. Fingers crossed that your sales stick. These days I think we deser
  5. Just the one sale - a distro - for $32 gross, $9 net. Best month ever for me for views at 579 with 7 zooms, 3 of which where my picture was the only one zoomed, and of those, 2 which Bryan has just reported as being used in the online version of The Times for the 1st August. So with what I've read on the forum about how quickly (slowly!) newspaper sales get reported and paid, I should get some money for them around about December. So Merry Christmas to me.
  6. 2 sales ( of the same picture ) for $490 gross, my highest monthly figure in my short time here. Views only half of what I've been getting recently and only the 1 zoom. Could be better, but in the current situation, could have been a lot worse. So...happy(ish).
  7. Problem solved. Got back to have another look at the tree and it's European Larch (larix decidua). There are no white lines on the underside of the needles.
  8. I have this picture up as cones from a Japanese Larch (larix kaempferi) but I'm beginning to doubt myself now. The reasons I put it up as Japanese Larch was the way the mature cone seemed to be more open than on a European Larch and that the new branch in the background has a more reddish/orange colour to the bark rather than yellow. The tree itself was growing in a mature bit of woodland by the roadside and was a good 30-40 feet high. I've been meaning to get back and have another look at it (especially the needles) but haven't had time. So if anyone can give me an answer one way
  9. Thanks folks for taking the time to answer my question but I've just figured out it's my own stupid fault. I set up a new pseudonym in AIM and moved pictures from an older one into it as it was a more relevant title, not realising that any views or zooms for the original pseudonym would no longer count, hence the reduction in numbers. Sorry for wasting your time and thanks again. Brian.
  10. Hi. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed their reported views for the rolling year being less than they expected today. Yesterday I had 4524 views and 41 zooms. Today I have 4118 views and 40 zooms. I'm used to the figures reducing at the start of every month as an old month drops out, and it happened at the start of April, but this is the first time it's reduced twice in the space of 7 days. It's not greatly significant in the grand scheme of things, it just seems unusual. Happened to anybody else? Thanks, Brian.
  11. Found this nest lying on the ground of a woodland path, obviously having fallen from a tree. Just fascinated that the enterprising wee birdie that built it has used strands of blue plastic in its construction. I'd heard stories of other birds using all sorts of things to build with, but it's the first time I've actually seen it myself.
  12. The sun went in a few minutes later and he left, so no worries.
  13. My word, Paulette, steady on. You'll be making the poor man blush. He's British, don't you know. 🙂
  14. Had just finished taking a shot of some early spring flowers and was packing up my camera when I turned round and found this chap staring back at me. Probably not the best picture I've ever taken but it made me smile. Plus it's probably as close as I am ever, EVER, going to get to taking a selfie!
