Just to share with my fellow Pentaxians.

I was asked if I was OK to have one of my photos included in a guide to Scotland - more specifically for Edinburgh Zoo.

No payment, but my name will be credited under the shot.

Of course I agreed, and today I have found out that mine is one of the chosen.

The King Penguin - Darren Varney. Clicking on it takes you to my Flickr page.

Not often my shots get included anywhere.

Next step payment???

Congrats on getting your picture selected. This type of exposure could lead to all sorts of good Things!!

Thanks Phil

Funny thing is, that same shot has been refused by 2 stck agencies as unsaleable...

Go figure!!!

Seems I still have a lot to learn :mad:

Congrats to a well deserved recognition! That's what we all dream about, but few will ever experience.

Way to go Dal! :D

That is one gorgeous penguin!:cool: Don't think I ever saw one like that beforeā€¦
I took a look at some of your pic on Flickr, I got a big kick out of the dry wall work in your home, been there done that! Looks like the finished product was worth the effort though.:-)

Congrats, Dal. That's one cool photo.

Well done! It is a nice picture. As far as the stock photo stuff goes - it seems to me that with so many people owning dSLRs now that agencies have a huge choice now and you have to take something exceptional to get accepted. Good luck if you are pursuing it.
