I think it would be great to have some more statistics about what buyers are looking for in DT.
I don't know if it exists already in DT, but to know which images have been the most downloaded today, last week, last month and ever could inspire all contributors to upload images that people really need.
And you can search by yourself too. For example, I found that a "man thinking" sold about 10 photos. There was nothing special there, just a man thinking. There are many photos of men thinking and many have 10 - 20 sales... So it will be hard to find "what people buy". Anything, depending on the goal behind the screen....
It will depend on the buyer... and it seems there are so many... I bought some pictures to use as book covers. So I bought photos of a German castle, sometimes clouds etc. I found difficult to find a cover to use in a psychology book. It was also difficult to find a vampire here. Sometimes it is hard to find the photos we want, sometimes it is easy. So far I bought only 6, but I began to use the website last October so I am buying about 2-3 each month, not much.
