I don't really see the point of this thread though. You've already had a reply on the iStock forum from the head of the inspection team there, explaining iStock's rules on this type of shot. It's their site and they can take or refuse what they like. There is no "right or wrong"

The point is simple, I like too hear(read), other peoples opinion, they have rules on iStock but it doesn't mean that they are doing the right thing. And if I wouln't put this on the forum, I didn't realese that there is another way like editorial. And is not I don't know about it. Just those things that pass by.

And of course is their site but they are making money with our material so, I think, we do have something to say... And what I learn about this particulary pic, is just get an MR if possible, and if not, editorial use is an option...

I have read about it but never put it in action...

As you see here are some different opinions.

So thanks all of have put their opinion here...

What are you smoking?

A mannequin?

Welding with sparks flying?

And what magic is making this happen?

As soon as a spark would hit the mannequin it wood ignite into a blazing fire!

Relax, I'm not saying that it is actually a maniqui inside... Off course it's a person. But if there were not sparks, how can you tell it's a person inside?.... the point is not if in this image is a maniqui or not... or if this can be prove...

The point is the this person is cover in many layers of clothes that in theory there is no way it can be recognice... or at least I thoungh that. And how much the MR is important in this case.

PD: I don't even smoke cigarretes.  ;D

I think the better way to approach this is to submit as editorial. Why take a risk of legal action and big hassles (I assume you don't have a model release and couldn't get one) for what earnings you might make shooting stock?

Even if you cloned out the flames (which you shouldn't do if you go the editorial route), there's a good chance the subject would recognize the workplace and their gear and get miffed about this being used without their permission. They don't have to prevail in a lawsuit to cause you expense and grief. Just not worth it, IMO.

Yeah, that's the way to go if I can't get de MR, but what I don't like for this is the editorial way have a very low dowloads. Even the "most downloads" photos are not that grate.. but yeah 1 dollar in editoraial is better than 0 in my hard drive.

I would agree that the custom helmet might be problematic and might require a property release or some heavy retouching, but a model release isn't needed.  I've always followed the rule that it doesn't matter if the subject of a photo recognizes themselves; it only matters if a third party who wasn't there when the photo was taken could identify that person with any degree of certainty.  I have a few candids that were accepted at Shutterstock and elsewhere; none of them showed the subjects' faces or involved clothing so distinctive that someone would know them.

Is nice when some one agree with you... :P

I thought it was the role "oh look that's Carl", but the rule maybe be "oh look! I guees that's me".

Well, I guess I was thinking the MR thing in the wrong way...

I thought it was like "can this person 'prove' is him/her in the picture"... because it there when is really a problem...

In this case in particulary, it can even be a maniqui and there is no way to know that it isn't...

but I guess just someone saying "it is me" it's enough.

I'm going to check that references, but I'm very interested in the a6000.

I'm not yet convinced that todays mirror less will do good captures of speed race boats coming around a corner at 120 mph.  That was my last shoot. For still and slow movements it seems they can do well.

Well, in the reviews that I saw of the sony a6000, I can't see how it couldn't take that kind of shot. 11 shot per second in raw and Aspc sensor.
