    I had one last week. Basic price though, little over half the old $28 we used to get and much, much, MUCH less than I have earned with single sales.

    +1 Thoroughly agree with this post. NT are doing themselves no favours with the way they do business. This is a very good shot in low light and conveys atmosphere. I like it and would surely encourage others to visit.

    Thank you all for your replies. I had wondered if the national trust had something to do with it....... But as the National Trust owns so much of rural UK, especially in National Parks like the Lake District, I did not think they placed restrictions on landscapes..... I must have a word......or more importantly get retrospective permission for the shots I took before resubmitting. Thanks again everyone. That is the best news Colin. If SS are willing to review photos of the Causeway with the intention of accepting them should they be technically suitable ( and why wouldn't they be when your other landscapes show you take excellent images) then we should all be getting our causeway shots prepared for submission. You have persued this for all of us and I for one thank you. Please let us know when your images are accepted and post them on here. Feel free to pm me if you like.

    I have been hearing a lot of stories about the way the National Trust acts in an overly 'dictatorial' fashion and other members I have spoken to have also reconsidered their membership. One photographer told me that he had approached the National Trust seeking permission to photograph a NT site but was refused permission as he was not a member of the Royal Society. Elitist or what.!!! That fact that the NT does not own Giants Causeway yet is trying to control photography of the site illustrates their attitude. I'm not a fan, nor am I a member. Love your Irish Landscapes btw, Colin.

    +1 It is the way Google works.. but Dilomski is correct, I am sure we lose may OD's due to this. Perhaps SS can approach Google about it.

    I'm inclined to agree with Tom. But I don't want to risk it, so I will avoid adding any shots I knowingly take on NT property to my port in future.

    Leaving TV and Seattle...

    It can never be over for someone with your talent, Phil. There will be new opportunities and freelancing that will happen. Great to see you putting family first and hope you have many happy years with your mother in Florida. Best wishes to her.

    I received a reply very promptly and it is pretty clear that we can not submit any photos taken on NT property without a commercial licence. Sorry if that is inconvenient, but I for one will be double careful of where I take my shots from in future. I will stick to public roads where possible! Many thanks for your email. Yes that’s correct – we do not permit any images taken on National Trust land to be submitted to online photo libraries, agencies, on-line providers or directly to image buyers. Please read through a brief description of our Photo Policy below, and let me know if you have any questions: Photo Policy Access to take photographs or make films for anything other than ‘personal use’ requires a licence and there may be a licence fee to pay.

    I have emailed NT with my enquiry with one of my images attached. I await an answer and will post their reply on the forum, but I hold little hope of my images being accepted unless I purchase a licence, as a full professional photographer would.

    I'm puzzled.....again. There are Many photos of The Giants Causeway, the World Heritage site in Northern Ireland [most of which are horribly oversaturated BTW]. So following my recent trip to the area I sent in five shots as 'Editorial' as there were tourists I do not know enjoying the day. All five submissions were rejected with this note...….. Non-Licensable Content: Due to legal compliance restrictions, we cannot license this content in our collection. As there are already shots of the place on site must I assume they slipped through our rigid acceptance procedures? All advice greatly accepted. Thanks

    New keywords to old pic.

    Thank you so much Alex and Philip. This has worked and is so easy. You are both too polite as neither agreed that I must be getting old and slow.! Thanks again for taking the time to help.

    New keywords to old pic.

    Hi, I may be getting old and slow in many ways, but I used to go into accepted pics, which is no longer an option and add new keywords. I can't do that now so how, if at all, can I add new relevant words, or delete old words spelt wrongly or no longer relevant. Is it possible or have SS just found another way to mess with our heads? help greatly appreciated

    This right here is what's killing Shutterstock

    World Domination.....all that matters. Collateral damage to individual photographers, quality and reputation is unavoidable and unfortunate but will not deter the quest. All we can do is pick up crumbs that fall our way and be thankful.... and reflect on the part we have played in our own downfall. While I get a pay out every month or two I am resigned to be relatively discontented with my crumbs.
