I want to share my joy with you - after a massive uploads and rejects, 3 of my works are accepted :)
unfortunately, looks like all my photos with canon a95 powershot camera not compliance technically with this site standarts, as so no one of that works is accepted ( it is sadly, because most of my pics is taken with "mobile and everyday" compact, and some of that, i think, in the artistic value, is ok. but, what do...from now i try to use dslr more hardy ;)
PS try to learning to photoediting with GIMP too ( reduce noise and try to remove shadow from flash on one candidate photo, but until now - without sucess...;)

As i dislike cities, and in a way to living in rural site, i like to shot a nice nature sights, wild animals and birds, sky with interesting clouds, and as a astronomer - also moon and so on via telescopes. Also i use small telescope as telephoto lens for wild animals and bird shooting at 400mm focus ( really with my camera crop factor of 1.6x it works as nearly 600mm lense ).
Not loving post processing, as so, i try to take a maximal good, natural shots.
I would be grateful to those buyers who let me know how and where my images are used. It can be done by commenting the image that has been bought. Thank you!

Welcome to DT family!!!
Hello Janis and welcome to DT family :-) Wish you best of luck for the future and I hope you enjoy your time here!!! Bye, Francesca :-)
Thanks, friends! :)
about moon: thanks too, but i think, i far away from really good telescopic pics, including moon in prime focus ( who, on other hand, imho, is easiest of space objects, to shot ).
my lovest moon photo is on afocal method, taked with powershot a95 compact via telescope and eyepiece:
but thats pics have a lot ¨defects¨ like a chromatism, not focus on pics edge ( field curvature? ) and another thinks, who make them impossible to publish :)
as so i try to get moon in prime focus, with extender, for more detail view. on other hands - i see a ¨closeup moon¨ is very well covered topic in dreamstime ;)
Welcome to DT and congratulations! I wish you the best of luck here and every success. :)
Congratulations and welcome!
Congrats, Janis! I wish you to get the 1st download soon!
Congratulatioons and welcome!
Congratulations! Your moon photos are excellent!
Congratulations, and welcome to DT, enjoy your time here.
thanks to all! :)
on astronomy i more specialised on visual moon and planets. dso is not so effective views in small appertures ( under 12 - 14"imho ), as so, until i relocate to live out of city, i look on planets in general ;)
serious astrophoto, in other hands ( not so newbie, as my, single shot ), especially DSO photo is very expensive for me on both aspects - in money, and by time consuming, especially for images post-processing.
Congratulations!!! Best of luck for the future.
Congrats Janis!!! Keep it up. Learning good photo editing will also increase the number of images accepted.
I am also an astronomer with a special interest in observing our moon and star.
Way to go. I agree that you should use the DSLR the most.
Congratulations! Start using your DSLR more often and you will see your acceptance rate getting higher! :)
