Why messing around with these options instead of getting an Imagebank II for your H4D50? The H4D60 can use (finally) the clip-on solution (not the Imagebank II) but AFAIK the H4D50 can use the Imagebank II. Procentre has them for sale second hand for around 300GBP. A bit more expensive than the cheap alternatives but a much nicer solution. I used to own an Imagebank II and these things are quite small and handy (sold mine after I got the H4D60).

It is the image owner's prerogative to pursue as he/she sees fit.

One could argue that using in blogs and Facebook is commercial.
Blogs, yes to commercial if blogger earns money. FB also yes if it is someone using FB for a business promotion.
However if you shoplift from a shop, should you be let let off if it is for your personal use?

Impressive detail, like how he sorta tilts and fits the composition so nicely Smiley

Luckily for me, I said:

"The number of artists who did it mainly for fame, for immortality, for a legacy is.. pretty small."

rather than "there are no artists ..." and I have given you a method for proving what I actually said in literally a matter of seconds. And yet you continue to contest it, pointlessly.

You are a mere coup-counter, unwilling to either admit defeat or simply, gracefully, let your humiliation fade quietly away.
No idea why you think I'm humiliated, just because you like to rant at me. You have a different view that all.
BTW - You haven't proved what you claimed to be the case. You did however then claim to have found proof of your previous claim, but didn't show it.
Why should I simply agree with you just because you keep claiming something, but never show any actual evidence for? It simply comes across as your viewpoint with no sign of any facts.

I remain staunch in my position that all the drama surrounding Lik is good for photographers, because it draws the public's imagination toward high $$ images. As I also clearly said, "Even Lik selling multiple single images in the $20,000-$40,000 range is great. How many of you do this? Other record-breakers don't always make record-breaking sales either."
My girlfriend would be very, very, very, very pleased if I was selling my photos at those prices.  Grin

High $$ photography is not about "technical skill"; it's about capturing someone's imagination ... or by being being somewhere to capture a great moment.
In fact, go re-read everything I said with my statement giving the musician's quote: there are many "extremely talented" musicians who don't know what a hit song is. Being able to create hit songs is not about technical skill either; it's about being able to capture "something" (some beat/rhythm) that the public wants to buy.

The same principle translates to photography.
Gursky, Sherman, and Stieglitz were not geniuses "technically," but artistically.
A pet peeve of mine in any creative medium is people thinking being technically good at something is better than being creatively good at something. Technique is something anyone can learn and is nothing special, vision however is something you either have or do not have. Most do not have it, no matter how many course they go on to learn how to be a great photographer/painter..etc.
Also in my experience, those who tend to obsess of technical aspects tends to produce work that is aesthetically lacking. BTW I'm certainly not saying good artists are technically incompetent, usually they are very skilled there too. But they are happier to do whatever looks nice over what is 'correct'. You normally have to learn the rules to know how to break or rewrite them.

Very nice and gives some context vs the previous "ice" photo. Chandelier is an excellent title by the way!

Beautiful set but my favorite in #2. The shorter exposure gives a sense of flow in the water and it's a good complement to the dramatic sky. Image #1 is a bit more static, in my opinion.
