6 days between approval and the 1st sale


posted on 19th of january, 2012
I have read stories on downloads that had been happened in a couple of hours after approval. Nothing of the kind happened to me, so far. My record is 6 days between approval and first sale. It took place today. Here is the image:

Hah, I know what you mean. I'm lucky I got a good copy of the Jupiter-3. People tell me you're much more likely to get a good copy of the slower Jupiter-8 instead. Of course, the lens lacks too much contrast to be used at f/1.5 anyways, so I don't think the J-8 with an f/2 aperture is a bad choice anyways. I don't shoot my J-3 wider than f/2 anyways.

to Neddog: Hi. I never used these lenses for common photos, only for astrophoto. So. my experience is not too reach. Both lenses are OK being not open (f/5.6 or f/8 or even more closed).

One more remark: quality strongly varies from one lens to other.. So, it looks like a lottery :)

Hi Igor,

I notice you use the Jupiter lenses. Of course, I'm sure these lenses are more common where you are than where I am (Canada), but I thought I'd say hi from a fellow Jupiter user. I love my Jupiter-3 (1953 copy) to death, and am thinking of getting a Jupiter-9 in M39 LTM mount. My profile pic is taken in the mirror with the J-3. ;) How do you like your Jupiter-37AM and Jupiter-21M?

Clip art on Astronomy and PhotoShop plugins


posted on 24th of january, 2012
In my portfolio there are 40 or 50 images that represent clip art on astronomy themes. Like these ones:







=================================================================================================

They are sold more or less succesfully and so, recently I decided to expand the collection. Today 3 new images have been approved (3 from 3). Here they are:





I plan to continue this work using PhotoSHop and very effective sets of plugins. Namely, FLAMING PEAR which represends number of nice looking and easy-to-use filters and KNOLL LIGHT FACTORY which helps to produce different kind of flashes, glares, blinks etc....
