A work of art or a stock image?

My local council used to have an art competition every year, which was mainly painting, drawing and photography. I looked forward to it every year and everyone that submitted got in. It was a wonderful community event. The main criteria was to capture some aspect of the local area.This was the year I chose a local park where many people walk their dogs and which also happens to be a historical cemetery. Head stones and monuments are scattered about this park which makes it fairly unique. I used to... continue reading

Crossing 50 images with macro images

Hello guys,How are you?52 images are not much. I know that, but it's a start. Hopefully I will be able to upload more in a short time since I'm aware of the quantity factor here. I'm sure everybody are trying hard to upload their best images, and I know it takes time and effort.The last batch that I uploaded contained some landscapes and textures for background, or for matters such as health and nutrition. But... I really enjoy macro shooting and therefore uploaded some image of pushpins... continue reading

On my trip to New Zealand, my camera malfuntioned!

I usually shoot all my pictures on "A", which stands for Aperture. I like to control my lens opening for depth of field as well as sharpness. I don't have the best lenses so I try to stop down at least one stop if not two.1/3 of the way through my trip, my camera would not work on "A"! So, I switched to AUTO to see if that worked. It did! So, for the rest of my trip I shot everything on AUTO.After looking at all my pictures, I've come to the conclusion that AUTO was not really an inconvenience... continue reading

A hard days work

Some year and a half ago someone tipped me to place my photo's on Dreamstime: "you never know, someone could like your pictures and get you some earnings". So I started to judge my one photo's, till then mainly published on Flickr, and publish them on Dreamstime. What a disappointment at the start. The first I sent in were rejected. The tips and tricks the editors gave were used to ameliorate my material and my judgement. A new body was bought and only the very best were uploaded. Slowly the number... continue reading
