Images Sold in November (one per day per contributor)

Recommended Posts

And now to return to the topic at hand.

Editorial use, an Italian magazine.  Fun timing since I just met cousins of mine from Italy yesterday who were here in NY.

The photo is from that 2011 Scandinavian trip I mentioned in passing above - of the Kerid crater lake in Iceland.

RM, Print, digital & electronic, 10K print run. High $$ not bad as it says bulk discount.

As Steven had asked about mirrorless cameras and I wrote a small novel above, I'll continue briefly off-topic here. I hope to visit my Italian cousins next year and I'll want the Sony for those amazing caves in Matera, were one of my grandfathers hails from. One of my cousins,  a very talented amateur photographer, brought me an amazing coffee table book of images from the town as a gift - so beautifully bound. My Nikon 20mm f/1.8 on the Sony will be ideal for the caves as well as those incredible landscapes and for navigating the narrow streets of that ancient city. And it will be a joy to use either the Olympus or the Sony in Rome, which I last visited in 2007, shortly after I started out as an advanced amateur with my 6MP D70. 

 

When another fellow Alamy forum member and I were planning the 2011 Scandinavian trip, one of you old-time forum members - and I'm sorry I forget who - recommended getting the 20mm to use on my D700 for the narrow medieval streets of Tallinn, Estonia. I am forever grateful. His advice was spot on.  That 20mm with a manual adapter is now my go-to lens on the Sony, thanks to some excellent advice from a blogger. The landscape photo that I've posted today was probably taken with it. I was leery of the plastic build originally but it is much lighter because of it. And the optics are superb.

It was built in 1845, I went on only long enough for a few shots of the castle. Very overcrowded and no control. Its a long way up as well!!!  :huh:

I would add all the engineering ones too...overloaded, overloading, load factors....this is a prime example from one of my engineering texts as to what NOT to do.

It's fine, solid as a rock. At least it was in 2013.

Though as I recall I couldn't submit the pix I took from the bridge because of camera shake, or was it the camera?????

Anyway, editorial website. Fee fair, by the standards of today, but with a worrying addendum that it can be syndicated. Mmm curry at the fish market in Dubai. Scuse fingers.
