My 1st $100 from DT

posted on 19th of february, 2009

This Tuesday I found my account get the 1st earn of $100, which made me quite excited & happy.

Actually, I joined DT since earlier of last year, before then I favored of taking photograph for quite a long time, in despite of only cherished them for memory. Once a time, I occasionally knew there’s a famous platform on internet for photograph fanciers to post their pictures & share their experience with others, or even get paid if their picture can be recognized.

Then I began to decorate my favorite pictures and upload them to DT full of confidence, with the expectation of being recognized by others. However, making me so much disappointed was most of the pictures, which I fancied quite much were refused once & again…this condition kept for about 2 months, still no any improvement. The 1st time I felt so much frustrated & even disappointed found that during this period there’s seldom download of my approved pictures, which made me lost interest and left it aside.

Until my recent back to DT at the end of last year, that’s 7 months after my previous logging on DT, I astonished found that my earning had been reached to $49! I was so happy to find that for almost each month there’s download of my pictures more or less, some of the pictures had even been download twice or more times.

From that moment, I feel my confidence came back again and continued to work hard on my pictures and upload for approval. Although still got refused frequently, however, this time I kept doing, taking their advise seriously and try to avoid the same problems when next shot; and at the same time persist with my faith that examinants will be convinced by my good quality pictures.

“You reap what you sow, as you sow so shall you reap.” Slowly I found more and more my pictures getting approved and more frequently my pictures getting download, even some friends left comments or messages to me, sharing their feeling with me. As a result, my earning is increasing slowly. Actually, the most gratified for me is my photos getting recognized by others and even some of them like to pay that for me, regardless the value, it’s already good enough!

Now, I’ll take chance to appreciate those, who like my photos and even bought them, and I’ll continue to share with you my good photos as many as I can.

Hereby share with you the most welcomed & download of my pictures up to now, cheers!
