Thanks guys!

@Adeliepenguin: no, not yet ;)

@Rozenn: not too often, I guess. The Dreamstime team should know the answer, but I doubt that they will share it.

Thanks guys!

@Roger: yes, I no longer hold the copyright for the image, so yes, I cannot sell it (or otherwise offer it) anymore anywhere else.

@Thanatonautii: you can always activate extended licences for your approved images.

@BCritchley: actually, it was sold for 300 credits (it was previously downloaded once here on DT), out of which my share was $150 :) I hope I do not violate any regulations if I show you the thumbnail that's still active here: http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/thumbsmall_481/12671212095KEh9A.jpg

Super well done, just read you can't show us what sold, never mind and all the best :-)
Posted by BCritchley on July 28, 2010
Super congrat's must be an ace feeling :-) As DT normally sets the price at $250 did you choose to lower your asking price before hand or did the buyer haggle you down? Can you share the shot you have sold?

Great job men! I wish I have one of those, but I didn`t select them for SR-EL :) Maybe I will!
Congratulations!

Thank you all. It has been a wonderful day :)
Posted by Fotodesignjegg on July 28, 2010
Nice day for you. Thats a big turnover with one image on one day.

But you sold the rights. This means you can not offer this image any longer, isn't it like that?

All the best.

Roger

Of course, it's not the file attached, because it has already been removed from the DT database (and I removed it from all the other stock sites). But it was an illustration.
