    by Ellenboughn | 17th of February, 2007

    A pioneer in the stock business once said, "A good stock photo is an incomplete photo". That doesn't make sense, does it? Shouldn't a great stock photo simply be a great photo? Sometimes, yes. But think about one of the reasons stock photos sell and the unfinished... More

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of February, 2007

  • Our European "exotic" birds

    by Physi28 | 5th of February, 2016

    by Physi28 | 4th of February, 2016

    When I made the photo I was not sure it would be of any use, for DT that is. Later on, when I checked it in the computer I liked the effect which the bizarre branch had on the whole image, after erasing some disturbing elements I thought it was ready for upload. I was wondering... More

  • Retro funicular - A Lisbon icon

    by Josegoulao | 4th of February, 2016

    by Physi28 | 3rd of February, 2016

    by Lightpro | 2nd of February, 2016

    I have been amazed by the fact that there are photographers with over 100,000 images on line. As a retired professional photographer who had a camera in his hand a minimum of 10 hours a day, I have avoided carrying it with me. This has led to a small amount of time in the... More
