Ever changing weather in London - my recent successful trips.

posted on 2nd of april, 2012

Hi Dreamers!

Over the years I have been to London several times, and every time I carefully packed my camera etc, hoping for a great opportunity to take great pictures. To my great regret, until very recently I was mostly unlucky in terms of the weather in London.

Usually I had some businesses to take care of first which (again usually) would happen before afternoon, just while the sun was shining and the sky was blue. I used to think: What a wonderful day for a photo-session in the City of London! I should not miss this chance! ... Well, you've already guessed correctly - nearly right after my businesses were done, something always happened in the skies over London and, in particular, directly over my head. Winds would start blowing faster and clouds...

As a matter of fact, I do see now increments in lightbox counters, which is fantastic! :)

Thank you, Enrique! :) I hope some buyers will be amazed with them too one day...
You also have some amazing pictures in your port, I especially liked you tropical vacation sunset series with people jumping over water/waves.

Hi Dreamers!

In a recent discussion in this thread about cropped vs non-cropped pictures of people and such, it appeared that some buyers do not realize that they can "legally" contact contributors, i.e. the authors of those images they want non-cropped versions of. I thought it is an important piece of info deserving a blog article.

There are two ways of contacting a contributor.

1. You can contact us via admins, i.e. via the DT contact form. Send them the details of your request about a particular image and providing its ID, of course. Then, the admins will pass your request to the contributor, who will be more than happy to upload a more suitable...

I think to tackle the issue of diversity and search I will create just a few collections like that. :)

Thank you guys, again! :)

Calyx22, thank you for your comment. I have just created such a "variation and collages" collection. However, I think the issue will be its diversity in subjects and objects, so that a buyer will be soon lost browsing through it. I could not find a way/means to filter out images by keywords in a particular collection when viewing it. So, after all it does not seem to be practical, unless there is interest and will to add the search functionality to collections just like we have it for our list of uploaded files.

It would be nice if there were actually more contact between buyers and sellers. I have only been contacted by the buyer once, through the contact form on DT. I wish there were more, that's for sure! You pose some interesting questions, though. I shall have to go think on them. :)
