  1. I'm still contributing. I finally got round to joining the archival scheme so I'm busy ploughing through my thousands of trannies from the 70s and 80s. Three or four single-$ sales dented my enthusiasm a bit but today I got a $$$ so there's life in the old dog yet. Alan
  2. But that's exactly my point. The photo itself is not ranked so it's irrelevant whether it's been sold or viewed. All your photos together are ranked as a block depending on the contributor's overall performance. Whichever of those photos appears first depends on other factors as I explained in my earlier post.

  3. Alamy doesn't rank individual photographs, it ranks contributors So if you appear third it simply means you are the third highest contributor for that particular search phrase. Your highest-appearing photo will either be the one whose keywords most closely match the search, or if there are more than one that match, usually the most recent one to go on sale. Alan
  4. So... we have a winner! It was neck and neck most of the way but the winner broke clear in the final furlong - Colonel Blimp's girls jumping into the water. Well done Andy - now over to you to set this month's challenge. Alan
  5. OK folks, voting will close at mid-day tomorrow (Monday), UK time. Alan
  6. Oh this was so hard! I asked for the beauty, atmosphere and excitement of being beside the sea, and I got it in spades. I would have liked to choose at least 30 for the shortlist so I will try to give my reasons for selecting each one. 1. Lake Huron in winter by Jill Morgan: the seaside can be just as beautiful in winter. 2. Children by Michael Ventura: the seaside is all about being a child, whether you're 8 or 80. 3. Beach in Hawaii by Ed Rooney: Yes, it's a manufactured shot but for me it captures the end of a perfect
  7. This month's competition is now closed. I now have the daunting task of selecting a shortlist Alan
  8. Last chance to enter. The competition will be closed at mid-day tomorrow (UK time), 1st September. Alan
  9. Someone whose geography is a bit hazy I think. He or she has photos of Spain keyworded 'england', 'britain' and 'uk'. Alan
  10. Is this fairly new? I was living in Seaton until 8 years ago and I don't remember it. Alan
  11. Blimey, you're not making my job of choosing a winner easy, are you? Alan
  12. My understanding was that each word is still treated as a separate keyword, it's just that if the keywords appear as the same phrase they should come higher up the search. But I haven't put this to the test. Can anyone else confirm? Alan
  13. I wonder if they have a video section? I made this little film a few years ago. You will recognise the location John. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jSckHJRSSk Alan
  14. I've only been to the Great Lakes once when I took the opportunity of an 8-hour flight stopover in Toronto to explore, and it felt very much like a sea to me! Alan
