  3. Thanks Alan. I expect sometime I will do something similar and pick one up second hand. It looks like a lot of fun.
  4. I especially love this colourful photo Alan that looks like it was taken with a fisheye lens. I've wondered about getting a fisheye lens and how useful or not it would be for stock photography. I can see here how it really works well and gives a great perspective of the scene.
  5. Yes, it's funny how some things, including birds and animals, seem to be only of interest to some people if considered rare. The Barred Owl is lovely. Certainly a fair bit bigger than the little Boobook.

  7. love it. probably good timing as 45th day would be before Jan 31st, so chance of a February payout Thanks Jean-François. Yes hopefully February. I just saw your owl photos. They are beautiful! I've had three small fledgling owls called a Boobook Owls visiting recently (Australia's smallest and most common owl). They chat to one another from the roof, telegraph wires and trees. One morning I even woke at dawn to the sound of an adult talking to one of the babies right outside my window. They are lovely to have around.

  10. So sorry to hear about your nephew Betty. Sending very best wishes.
  11. +1 to Colin's comments above. I recently took a macro image of a damselfly that I was pretty happy with. I then checked the competition on Alamy for that species of damselfly and realised what was already there was definitely superior to mine and so I decided not to upload it. It is worth considering what you can do better or differently if you are photographing subjects already covered on Alamy. I've only been with Alamy a short time and my sales cover four different subjects - a macro image of wildflowers, the exterior of a craft brewery business, an historic disused railway tunn

  15. Congratulations and great topic Bella! I am so impressed with everyone's images. I love seeing patterns in things so really enjoying everyone's contributions. Prayer wheels in Bhutan Three Pied Oystercatchers Light poles on a bridge
  16. Antisocial Tasmanian Devils we can well do without.😮 Yes, well they don't have the best table manners and apparently sometimes bite one another while feeding on carcasses, which is believed to be one way the facial tumour disease can spread. From the article it looks like they become antisocial if they have the disease, which might actually help reduce the spread of the disease. Before meeting some in Tasmania I thought they were scary, aggressive animals, but wildlife park staff said they are actually pretty shy in the wild (e.g. they are not going to launch a sudden, random

  18. I've seen that one before Paulette. It's so beautiful! They are so gentle, and the silverback is just making sure everything is ok and looking after his family group. They're grooming the human just like they do each other.
  19. Hey Sally, thanks for your kind words! I'm actually quite shy, but when I'm in work mode that kind of disappears, especially if the pressure's on to get sellable pics. You should try news, perhaps soft stories at first to get a handle of stuff. If you've any questions, send me an email, although there are far better press shooters than me on here. Many thanks Andy. That's good to know it is possible to be a bit shy but still get good people images when in work mode. Yes, I would definitely be inclined towards soft news stories. I'm not sure I'm cut ou
  20. So sorry to hear of everyone's tough experiences above. So sorry what you went through at such a young age Betty. That's a lot to deal with at age 16. Broken bones seem to be what's happening right now. I found out yesterday my aunty has fallen and broken her pelvis and is in hospital. She is upset she's going to miss my Mum's funeral on Friday. I will go in and visit her soon. She has a son and a sister living here which is a good thing. I've been diagnosed with a progressive autoimmune disease which has also come at a not great time, and the specialist wanted to do a biopsy on me
  21. Good on you for doing what you love Andy and making the most of it. You have some really nice people images in your Alamy collection and it shows you have good rapport with people which requires good interpersonal skills and being able to engage positively with people. I'd love to get more interactive people shots and I love people but I'm a bit on the shy side, so need to build up confidence in that area. As for me, I suppose I was kind of art oriented before doing stock as I was into landscape and nature images and wanting to capture the beauty of those things. Since starting doi
  22. We've been tucked away at the marina on the Wharf and haven't looked yet. I heard that Kingfisher Resort on the island has been evacuated. We stayed there once, a lovely place. I hope it will be unscathered. We had planned to camp at Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach but guess what, out of control grass fire there. As the road is a 10km cul de sac, we decided to go to Maryborough instead. It's fire season all over again. I know that there is smoke from Fraser Island at Rainbow Beach. Half of the island is gone in flames over the past 6 weeks. What a tragedy! Such a spectacular island.

  24. Great pics Gen. Bribie Island looks like a beautiful place to visit. Can you see the Fraser Island fire from there? It just seems to keep going and going. I hope they can put it out soon or some rain comes down and does it.
  25. Thanks Gen, that's a good idea. I'll add 'Motion Blur' in. That image was one of my first three submitted to Alamy and I was doing too many keywords then, so want to go back over a number of images to remove tags that might not be so helpful and improve on the ones I have used.
