I really love this image. Woke up to an amazing sunset from my hotel window and rushed outside and across the street to capture it without a pane of glass in the way.

I've had a couple lately, for slightly more money ;) .

Of course this could mean that the price has now dropped :angry: .

I had two last year, $15 and $22. Must be a sliding scale... B)

My first sale of 2016 for $14 appeared on Saturday.

 

I've tracked down that image use to a specific web article, but I've also found that another UK organisation has reproduced it, along with my image and 4 others from Alamy. I've submitted an unauthorised use form to Alamy so hopefully my returns might double!

Hmph, my first sale of 2016 was of a pint of Meantime Stout. Or slightly less than a pint, as I'd had a swig out of it.

 

A distributor sale, so with the prices at the Greenwich Old Brewery, I don't think I even made back the price of the pint.

But you have already had a benefit in kind, did you declare it to the taxman? ;) Presumably you enjoyed the rest of the pint after taking the photograph?.

3 sales so far this year in the first week or so, the cheapest being $74, RM and a couple of large RF sales, biggest being $360. Alamy for the last couple of months or so has been returning very good RF sales..... Not one for posting about sales but felt like saying..........Thank you very much Alamy! Keep it up please  :D

Yes.... make sure to claim the expense for what it was...a business expense. Those slimeballs in Parliament would.

My first sale for the year appeared 11 January, magazine/editorial for $35.  Now if only the Daily Mail would pay up for an image reported in June last year (published April), I'd have minimum payment for the month sewn up already

& the length of licence! :-(

It's a start I guess and it's better than one from The Guardian in Sept for $9 that still hasn't cleared

Hi All

 

First sale for me on the 11th 2 images for $7 not a vast sum but they were taken on my property while I was having a delivery of heating oil so didn't have to go far to shoot them.

Thanks for reminding me that I now have over $400 in sales within walking distance of my front door, over a quarter of which was pint-consequent.

I think my front door and my right arm are trying to tell me something.

I also had two for $3.60 each, same day, same subject.  Someone got a bargain at our expense I think.  Luckily not my only sales this month.
