  1. Three Alamy images on front page slide show (scroll down): http://travel.aarp.org/destinations/united-states/saugatuck/ One is mine, other two are James Shaedig/Alamy and Design Pics Inc/Alamy.
  2. The noise caught my eye as well. Especially since I had an image failed for noise far lower than this about a month ago. The funny thing was, it was an accidental duplicate of an image that had already passed. Some folks in QC are too anal about noise, other aren't anal enough, evidently.
  3. I got an email this morning saying 1.2 was in the App Store over the weekend. But per my post in the other section, I can't tell if my phone auto-updated and can't manually download 1.2 because the App Store says it's already on my phone,
  4. Or maybe it did auto-update, but if anything is new, I don't see them.
  5. Why no auto-update? Going to the App Store shows it already installed on my phone and you can't download the new version.
  6. Last Saturday, Chicago's CTA celebrated 50 years of service on the Skokie Swift (now officially named the Yellow Line) by running a 1920s vintage Series 4000 train. The last of these were retired in the early 1970s, so I'm old enough to remember them. Here's a multimedia video I put together: Video and most stills were shot with a 70D, EF-S 10-22mm and 18-55mm STM lenses. There are also a few iPhone 4S shots using the Camera Awesome app. Enjoy.
  7. I used Aperture for a photo book one time, but it was for a client, thus I marked it up and made a decent profit over the shoot itself. But for publishing books for sale, it's not worth it.
  8. Just when I thought I was through buying stuff for awhile. Intriguing. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=906265&Q=&is=REG&A=details
  9. Here's a link to the two versions in question: http://bannorphoto.smugmug.com/Photography/IPhone-Photos/n-bN7V5/i-bgTTVw6
  10. That's probably true if you're using Snapseed. Not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the built-in filter effects in the iOS Photos app. I also use Camera Awesome and it gives the option of saving either the unaltered or altered version to the iPhone camera roll, so there's no problem with that. I also think there may be a possible work around until Alamy sorts this out and that is emailing the altered version to yourself and then saving it back to the camera roll and uploading that version. I haven't tried it yet, but will today.
  11. I take this back. I tried again last night and it appeared the altered version uploaded and it appeared as uploaded in the Activity pane. However, this morning, the thumbnail in the Activity pane has reverted to the original. I'm pretty sure Alamy is getting the original. I've already had one failure and I believe it's due to them getting an unmodified file as the original color version is pretty plain jane but the high contrast black and white version is rather dramatic.
  12. Never mind. It seems to be fine now. Must have been a glitch with the phone.
  13. I've uploaded three photos so far and noticed something with the last one. I applied the iPhone's "Noir" filter to the image, which gives a high contrast black and white effect. It made this image quite dramatic. However, after uploading, the image thumbnail in the Activity section is the unaltered version. iPhone filters are non-destructive, you can go back to the original. Hopefully, the altered image is what uploaded, but if it was the original, this is a problem.
  14. If the license plate is a vanity plate similar to what most U.S. state allow you to have for extra cost, it could be a clue at to it being a '60. Seem unlikely it would randomly be assigned "TF 60..."
  15. Could be a card issue. Can you read it in a card reader attached to a computer?
  16. I'd avoid confrontation on any big city public transportation. You never know. My brother had a neighbor who had a gun pulled on him on the El in Chicago. According to witnesses, he said, "That's not a real gun." Unfortunately it was and that was the last thing he said.
  17. This is a repost of an article from her own blog a couple years back: http://www.roniloren.com/blog/2012/7/20/bloggers-beware-you-can-get-sued-for-using-pics-on-your-blog.html
  18. Good catch. Hindsight being what it is, I wish I'd thought of this and said nothing more.
  19. For some reason, I thought of this. Not that I'm in the same league. I'm not. http://theonlinephotographer.blogspot.com/2006/06/great-photographers-on-internet.html
  20. I've been shooting stock for almost twenty years. I've worked at an agency as a photo researcher. It has nothing to do with lowering standards. Mark is correct, the buildings aren't the focus of the image and dont need to be corrected. Another thought. I wager that if you were to look at calendars going back several decades, you'd find plenty of cityscape images with converging verticals.
  21. Didn't seem to matter to the customer, did it?
  22. In my neck of the woods, they'd just break in looking for a semi-auto.
  23. Check this out and read the second review: http://www.amazon.com/Metz-MZ-44316S-Pre-Flash-Digital/dp/B004Q9SXQE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1387983722&sr=8-2&keywords=Metz+flash+Sony I have a Metz 58 AF1 for Canon and it's a good flash.
  24. Funny, I got a popup ad for Mac Keeper. And another from a porn site. If you're running Windows, I'd scan.
