People in Alamy images

Alamy has just sent me an email detailing 30 images which they say are wrongly annotated, specifically that I had noted that there were no people in the images and that I had to change the annotation. Admittedly, Alamy is correct. In my defence, these all date to a period where I was not aware just how stringent this rule is, but ignorance is not a defence.
Most are like the one here where any people are insignificant details in the picture.

But here's one where the people element is just a shadow! So be aware: Any part or shadow of a human being counts as "people", and without model releases, must go as Rights Managed.
