photocatseyes Posted July 5, 2013 Share Posted July 5, 2013 http://photocatseyes.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/SteinsWebGallery/index.html Is where the photographs are. I had a huge discussion with QC this morning because we all know it: scrutinize at 100 percent is the norm. I took those photographs on a recent trip (last week) to New Mexico and Arizona, in 107 degrees, inside without flash because I wanted to shoot with available light to emphasize the atmosphere of the place. Which is dark and gritty with a very magical light. Tripods are not allowed in most public places and I will certainly not log one around in 107 degrees... So I knew that I was going to need some extra luck and a bit of common sense from Quality Control. Of course, they did scrutinize them on 100 percent, and of course, they did not pass. To say I am peeved is the least. I KNOW that the pics need 100 percent viewing for quality control, as we all do. But is it really too much to ask to get this batch in as is, with available light shots and as I see them in my photographic mind? I wonder if the people who do use pics of ghost towns really look at them like we and Alamy do... I worked for a newspaper for 15 years and never, ever, never saw one photo editor look at the pics they wanted in at a 100 percent. Stock is nearly dead, and it is gasping even more for breath in situations like these... Am I the only one to disagree totally with Alamy's QC team in this particular case? Shall I go kill myself? Also, the pics are shot with a Nikon D800, and I find that the machine performs magically well in low light conditions... I was so happy with these pics untill I talked to QC... Now see if this post gets to the forum... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
