Water view sunset

Wonder if Terry meets Julie?

Skywatch



I was going to give you a pun laden sunset cliche post tonight. Afraid it's post and run. So you'll have to gaze on my water view sunset and just feel like your in paradise. Yes of course on a Friday night. We don't get them like this often. If you have been following the blog now for a while then you may recall those Ramsey harbour sunsets last year. Have a search of the blog for them if you like. The dirty old river looks like it's swathed in purple and pink satin, but it's just the sundown reflecting the light. I'm so lazy I don't want to wander to far from this image tonight but I'm afraid I have a little problem again. Put it this way I have a fly to squat.



For those have followed the progress my other little photo problem is well and truly sorted. Excellent outcome. Today though I have another. You can imagine how fed up I feel. As always the little bird on my finger icon, on the right of this page will take you to another well known site that will have the details later tonight.



Well I stay at home tonight. More little kinks to iron out(got to that one in somewhere)on the "hey this photo belongs to me front." Anyone would think I'm a charity. So Water view sunset I will leave you with to gaze upon, my harbour paradise and yes those colours are natural and no I won't show bigger images anymore, ever now and someone else other than me can explain why to the new commers in the comments please.

Hello Everyone, Please read this.

Really sorry about the small image but most of you know the trouble I have which I am happy to say has been resolved. Yes I will be paid for the image ans it has been taken off the site. I hate to tell you all this but it has happened again elsewhere. Not just one image but several in the same place all from "ramsey daily photo."have been used without payment or permission as clearly stated. I am hoping to resolve this one a little more quietly. If this continues I am afraid I will close the blog and take every image of the net. I cannot stress enough each time an image is reprinted, re used, copied, etc without payment to myself I loose money and I simply can't afford this as a photographer, not a hobby blogger. As always Facebook will keep you updated.

Really sorry again for the small image.

Thanks for reading

I'm glad to hear that the first one is sorted out and equally sad that a new one is coming instead. Good luck with the new one You are fighting for all of us - even the amateurs. Maybe it is best to return to paper in frames on the wall.

Photo Cache said...

Glad to know that the first one was resolved. Good luck on the other cases.

This image is excellent.

erin said...

good to hear you had one positive outcome...congrats. and i am hoping the second will work out the same. would hate not to see your posts...so i hope that things are resolved in a positive manner.

beautiful beautiful colors in this image.

hugs and good thoughts

Kim said...

Please don't stop B.

Sylvia K said...

Glad the first one is settled, sorry there's another -- price you pay for being a brilliant photographer, I guess ;)! I'll continue to follow on Facebook. This is a stunning shot regardless of being small and the colors are gorgeous!

Kick back with a JD and enjoy the weekend, Babooshka!

Sylvia

loulee said...

I love todays image, it's beautiful.
As for the thieves.....Way to go you! I hope you get this latest lot sorted out too.

Mojo said...

Rune's right, you're fighting for us all -- and we've got your back Babs. But I'm happy to hear you got the prior problem resolved at least. I hope you don't wind up quitting the blog. That would be a loss to us all -- especially when there's images like this one to see here. So if you need me to break some legs...

I for one would deal with it just fine if you slapped a big old copyright watermark across the middle of your shots on the blog. I know you don't want to because it detracts from the image, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right?

What I have to ask is how you manage to find these pirates in the first place. I mean unless you have a network of spies working for you scouring the corners of the web looking for pilferage, how do you even know they've boosted your images? I'd really like to know and I'm sure a lot of other people would too. Because we all have a dog in this fight, y'know?

Adrienne in Ohio said...

The shot is no less stunning because of its size, B. You are quite talented, and so I hope you will be able to contintue with this blog. I enjoy your photos so!

bowledover said...

A few rotten apples in the barrel spoil things. You seem to have had a few too many at you end though.

Love the capture and even small its wonderful.
Be well.

Greyscale Territory said...

This photo is utterly glorious! The atmosphere of fading lights is quite "feelable" even in this smaller photo!

Really glad your first tension was sorted quickly! Hope it sets a benchmark for all those who think it's OK to steal photos from the net!

Vita Stunder said...

I'm really glad to hear that the first problem have been resolved, I hope this will be too!

I'm ALL behind you.
Is it anything we can do to help (I don't have Facebook)
Because I believe many troubles starts in that place when it comes to pictures.

Gorgeous capture!!
And I really love the colours :)

Have a great weekend!
Anna

Baruch said...

Great photo - as always. Happy to hear your issue has been resolved. Very upsetting that photos can be stolen in this way. At least you knew about it and could follow it up. How many of us do not know and will never found out ......

Miranda McAfee said...

Good Luck. This is a beauty.

Elisabeth's bright side said...

You presented us a beautiful sky this time too. Pet that fly on the back. Too bad if it gets squashed :)

Tom said...

SkyWatch Firstmy Friend:

This is another delightful sunset you have for us... it's a beauty.

Now the other:... I am glad you got paid by the first company.. and it really saddens me to hear you are concidering stopping blogging. I fully understand your reasons but what a loss to us all you would be... not just the 'Daily' bloggers... but all who stop be here for your pictures, writing, information, banter and laughter... It will be a very sad day if it comes to this.

Babooshka said...

Mojo- Lots of things to do. I only got wind of this one today because someone else sent me a link and it went form there.

Things to do to find your images.

Google alerts. Log into a google account if you have one and set up a google alerts on key words.

ie- "Ramsey Daily Photo"
Babooshka
"Isle of Man"

Just as an example. I have others. This will highlight anywhere that has these phrases and were there are phrases are usually images.

Copyscape- sign up to that shows duplicate posting.

Try this link to check out and test anyone of your images. Thanks to Chuck in Seattle for this one.

http://tineye.com/

It is a tremendous tool.

Check under Google MORE button on the homepage and click BLOGS to check out others.

General search images - The most random but can be the most effective.
Try keywords you have used on one of your posts, like " beach, sunset harbour, ramsey." You might be very surprised where your image could turn up. As you know I was.

Hope this helps.

Babooshka said...

Tom - Our paths crossed commenting. You have been with me way back when I had about 5 readers. Fun then. None of this nonsense. I know you understand more than anyone re your own issues. It just gets so draining when as you know I'd much rather be having a laugh here than constantly have to guard my livlihood.

bowledover said...

Hey thanks for your visit and lovely comments.
Its always nice to visit your blog and you give such structured information about the use of the camera and perspective.

Not in the credits but first customer thats a promise.Shake hands on it.

mononeil said...

Wonderful sunset and result on your problem. But not again. Don't give up my friend. Fight to good fight and believe what is right.

Nice, I like the sunset on the harbor hiding the murky waters.
Glad you got it worked out with Virgin. If you weren't such a good photographer I suppose this wouldn't happen. Good luck on this next round.

Anonymous said...

I don't know what to say but shame on them.

cara said...

Looks like the collective mooning of Branson worked!

The shot is fab, big or otherwise. The info you've posted here to Mojo is really valuable. Thanks.

Grace and Bradley said...

I do remember your other photos of the harbor. This one is pretty and with the reflection of the sky in the river. Glade at least the first problem is solved and hope the second will follow suit.

J Bar said...

Stunning. Beautiful colours.

Love the color in this capture- I think you did a nice job-

Dan said...

Stay focused and don't drop the ball.

Tash said...

Totally fantastic incredible image, no matter what size. Glad one issue has been favorably resolved.

Dewdrop said...

Doggone theives.

Lovely capture... I love the way the colors just waft out of the horizon. Spectacular.

Buck said...

Stunning!

I think we're all behind you in your quest to secure your rights as a photographer.

Danton said...

Can still see the beauty captured in your photo.

Klaus said...

Oh dear. Been there, done that and in the course of that took several offending sites down.
Hope you get that sorted out soon.
Fantastic image by the way.

Cheers, Klaus

B SQUARED said...

Imagination or not, the view works for me.

Jacob said...

I wasn't aware that your images were being lifted! So sorry! That's just nuts! I'm becoming more cynical about our world every day!

This photo is probably another one someone would steal...very unusual colors in the sky...simply magnificent!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Nice skywatch shot. Sorry to hear about the stealing. Hope they all get settled.

Leif Hagen said...

Just fabulous I say! C'est formidable! Ausgezeichnet! Utmarkt! Subarashi! Bellissimo!

Carver said...

I am glad you got the photo issue you posted about resolved but am so sorry it's happening again. I enjoy your blog so much and hope you don't have to stop but I completely understand why you would if this continues.

As to your skywatch today, fabulous purple sky. Exquisite.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Lovely colors and reflections! Beautiful!

Carolyn said...

Beautiful photo and sunset! I am sorry to hear about your photos being lifted and thank you for the great information. Hope this situation is resolved to your satifaction.
Please don't leave the blogosphere, I so enjoy your posts.
Blessings and smiles

terrific!

Lew said...

I'm sorry to hear of your new problem. Good luck on sorting it out.

Your sunset colors are exquisite! And the still water reflection doubles our pleasure.

SandyCarlson said...

That's an awesome photo. Dreamy and romantic yet clear and full of energy. I wish I could drink it.

Love the purple color of the sky.

Spectacular shot.

Awesome! I love the color.

Sally in WA said...

I'm glad the first case has been resolved, but I'm saddened to hear that more have popped up. You take such wonderful photos like today's so if comes down to it, FB will have to suffice. I know I still want to see these great photos.

Tammie Lee said...

No worries about the small image, it is wonderful. So sorry to hear that folks are using your photos with out permission. I wonder if this is happening to me as well. boo hoo. I guess water marks are a necessity.

In the google alerts I just received, your blog was featured! Very cool and congrats.

Tammie

alicesg said...

Oh I am glad you are being paid for your efforts and hope you will resolved other problems too. I enjoyed your blog very much and thanks for sharing all these beautiful works of yours with us. Have a nice weekend.

Kaye said...

I am sorry this keeps happening. People are very rude. Magic colors.

Postcards from Wildwood said...

Beautiful sunset, Babooshka. So sorry to hear about the photo thieves. I've been thinking of putting a signature on each one I put on the blog - lots of people do that - but it takes more time and really spoils the image for everyone who just wants to enjoy. I can tell from searches that people are lifting specific images from my blog. If only they would ask I would almost certainly give them permission, provided they credited me - might even email a better quality version. I don't know how you've found out about these two - but if you know about two there are probably more out there. I hope you don't decide to close the blog. We'd all miss your banter! Good luck!
Janice.

magiceye said...

paradise enow!

jabblog said...

Very sorry to hear it's come to this. It must be so tiring and depressing having to deal with these thieves. It's your livelihood at stake. It seems there are many professionals in the same situation out there and we'd all be the poorer if you and they all decided to stop blogging.
Good luck.
Janice jabblog

Mike said...

Nice purples :0

Pacey said...

wow, some people really...btw, that's an exceptional shot, i do rarely see this kind of sky colors and see it so glowingly on the waters too.

Thanks too for the info on how to check our images.

Gretchen said...

It's a beautiful image.

Sorry to hear you're having more trouble. I go through it all the time. Photography and writing are how I feed my family, so I do understand completely!

AKO said...

Oh, I'm so sorry that people can't keep their hands of your photos. I understand your frustration but I hope that you find a way to stay on the internet so you can keep showing us your work.

You have a really a really beautiful pastelcoloured sky here that I imagine might be great to watch IRL. Have a great weekend!

Greensboro Daily Photo said...

Well I almost feel like I am cheating. Being able to enjoy the purple Ramsey sunset for free ON THE COMPUTER SCREEN. Stunning!!! You are one of the most commented on Sky Watch sites.Can't imagine your not being here!

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful shot. I could gaze at that all day.

All you work is wonderful and I hope I can always enjoy it and others will just keep hands off your photos. MB

Halcyon said...

I don't mind at all the "small" image. It's a beautiful photo and I always enjoy your contributions to skywatch. Hope you get it all worked out.

PS: Gorgeous sky!

Pam said...

Always like to see your photos and laugh at your words. I hope you can put a stop to the idiots. The web would be a poorer place without you.

Babooshka said...

Good news folks.

Managed to get the other photos removed that had been stolen. It helps to have copyright on your image and info embedded in the image. 100% proof it's yours.

Frank said...

I think a lot of bloggers sincerely appreciate you being so open and honest about the theft of your images. It doesn't even occur to the vast majority of us. It's a sad and maddening situation for you and others. Many of us blog because we truly enjoy the community of wonderful individulas/friends around the world who we share our photos and words with. It's a very special relationship unlike any other I know. Seeing your images and thoughts mean a lot to me and others. I will continue to enjoy your shots on the screen, small, and marvel at your skill and excellent eye for the world we live in. Thank you for being who you are.

Gattina said...

Don't be sorry, you are so right ! why shouldn't you be payed for such a creative work ! I wouldn't be happy either if somebody copies my paintings ! I have enough imagination to see that your sky is so beautiful and the colors are gorgeous !

Becky said...

This is a beautiful photo! I love the colours and the scene is so peaceful. Thanks for such a great way to end the week.

Lisa Wilson said...

What amazing colors! Beautiful photo! I'm so glad the photo issue was resolved.

Brad said...

Only thing I don't like about the small image is I can't see all the intricate detail. I learn so much from looking at your images. I understand though the need to go small. I hope no one else steals from you.

Jew Wishes said...

Lovely tones and contrasts, and I like the reflections. Beautiful.

Birding in Maine said...

WOW, outstanding capture!

I have problems with people stealing my bird photographs. It a constant battle with these theives.

It's not often you see the purples of sunset - this is truly beautiful.

Very pretty.

Mo said...

A stunning image. A truly magical sky. I'm delighted to hear the manx magic has worked for you and your current pirate problems have been successfully resolved. I guess it will be just a matter of time before it happens again unfortunately. Still they will encounter the wrath of Babooshka. Hope this success means a good night at the white swan this evening.

Denise said...

It's a magical photo. I'm so sorry you are having to deal with issues like this. People's dubious ethics will make us all suffer, in that we won't be able to view such exquisite photography. Unfortunately they don't give a damn do they? I hope you won't have to close your blog because of this. Good luck, looks like we're all in your corner.

Pearl Maple said...

Sorry to hear you had some problems, really very sad.

Smooth as satin is a sweet description for this beautiful scene.

bettyl said...

It's really a shame that there are those that are so low-life, but such is the life on the internet.

The only solution I can think of is to watermark them all across the photo. I know this will take a bit away from the beauty of your lovely work, but then again, we blog buddies would still appreciate your work!

It will be so sad if you have to go, but we would understand.

So sorry to read of the trouble you are having with theft. It's just not right! Good for you for following through and getting them to pay up.

Your picture is amazing. Don't worry about he small size. It's still a remarkable shot.

Please don't stop blogging. It would be our loss.

Meg said...

Beautiful photograph! Please don't stop blogging! Your shots are gorgeous!

Good to see the outcome. Still say the papers should have known. Perfect view.

Wow! This is gorgeous Babooshka!
Sorry to hear you are having the same problems again! Hope you will get succeded as well, but this is crazy!

Julie said...

It would be a shame not to see the bridge again.

George said...

I was sorry to read that you are still having trouble with the theft of your photos (that what it is), even though one issue has been resolved. You take incredibly beautiful pictures (like the one above) that it would be a shame if you had to take them off the web.

Babooshka said...

I'm hoping it's sorted now. Another thing I'm doing is having a short feed only and when not in moderating comments. Seems to be helping.

Louis la Vache said...

WOW, Babooshka! Are you starting your own Études dans bleu et rose series?
;-)

Paul said...

The web is a double edged sword on the one hand it is great for getting your work out there and on the other people can steal it. But that said I really do think the positives outweigh the negatives by a long way.
Nice to see you have sorted the Virgin problem.
Thanks for you nice comment on my Leeds Civic Hall photograph
I started to watermark my blog photos when I noticed other people on CDP beefing about people taking their images. So today I nearly always embed watermark, I guess it is easier that way.

Kim said...

I too would like to say thank you for inspiring me too into action on a personal note.
