Does any one have a link for discussions about key wording to include emotions or feelings?   Im trying to figure any rules of thumb for including them.

Well, naturally, ice texture is not noise that should result in rejection, but without seeing any pictures it's just speculation here.

Why not do long exposures by the way?

submit a few in the middle of a stack of other submissions - don't they only look at one image per submission?

If you fail a submission they will start looking more closely at your subsequent submissions, as well as delaying the approval process. So it's not a good policy to try to hide stuff in the pile if you know it is sub-standard.
I don't understand why glaciers would look "noisy" unless they do have "noise" in them, or why there should be a problem shooting them without under-exposing - but then there aren't a lot of glaciers to experiment with in Arabia.
Do you have watch any settings to avoid when taking pictures of sand dunes if you have any nearby?

She's probably shooting with a point and shoot or some inferior lens. Which camera/lens were you using, Beverly?
Beverly is the family name, and my point and shoot is a Nikon d7100 usually in Aperture mode on a tripod with a gen 2 kit lens (usually around 55mm).  At 60 degrees north, the sun is never bright even on the brightest day and ISO of 1600 is usually required to even to have a hope of freezing the branches and leaves of the low brush that covers most of Alaska.  So, noise is a problem all of the time.  However, none of that deals with the infinity of tiny mirrors that a granular field ice produces and looks like noise.  How do you deal with that situation?

Any suggestions on how not get "noise/gain" QA hits from a glacier or ice close up picture (other than converting to photo to a blurry water color by removing too detail with noise reduction)?  Alaska glaciers are granular at any distance from micro to telephoto and I can't seem to get an accepted by the QA folks.

Video Equipment / Sofware / Technique / Lightroom metadata issue
« on: September 13, 2017, 12:01 »
My wife and I are passing psd photos back and forth and The copyright information isn't being passed correctly.  The copyright date field and email address keeping changing to something from 3 years ago.  We've checked every export and import setting we can find without success.  Any suggestions in what to check next?

Alamy.com / Landscapes and soft or lacking focus
« on: June 30, 2017, 11:27 »
Are there any posts on how to avoid soft or lacking focus on large landscape photos?  I have a lot of photos with multi ridge lines and I just can't seem to exceed the reviewers standards.

General Photography Discussion / iPhone workflow
« on: April 22, 2017, 14:20 »
Does any have link to an article about managing your images starting with the iPhone, post processing, and uploading?  I haven't found a good piece or pieces of software to manage my photos.

Alamy.com / Changes in QA in 17?
« on: March 14, 2017, 11:44 »
Has Alamy changed their QA process recently?  I can only seem to get rejected for camera shake on pictures shot the exact same way in 2016?

Do any of the Alamy LR plugins allow you manage the 3 categories of keywords or are you back in your browser to adjust them?

What are the steps that Alamy QC goes through?  I'm wondering if there is another stage between processing and awaiting QC.

Does Alamy's search engine use the location field or does it need to echoed in the key words?

Is there any way to see which of your images have been viewed on Alamy?  All I found is the total view count.

Print on Demand Forum / Bayphoto or WhiteWall
« on: July 14, 2016, 21:38 »
We use WHCC for the bulk of our prints, they've taken great care of us over the years. They stopped charging us for shipping a few years ago and we ship everything over sea, this is a huge expense. We also use Bay Photo for odd sizes, or certain products WHCC doesn't have. Both great companies. Bay Photo kills us on shipping though.
We agree and bayphoto charges us overseas rate in Alaska and I've checked with Whitewall and they won't.

And they won't take two pictures of different sea lions sitting on different rocks?  Maybe I use a robot to write slogans multiple times across each of them.

iStockPhoto.com / Rejection zoological

IStock keeps tossing my sea lion pictures from the coast of Alaska as needing a zoo release.  Is there anything they'll accept in the caption to avoid this?
