My first extended licence

posted on 18th of november, 2009

Hi. Yesterday i sold my first extended licence (P-EL) of my portfolio.
I hope soon, other pictures will be in the same situation.
Now, the first Extended is to a map (Israel relief shaded).
This map was made by passion (i graduated the Geography University in Bucharest, Romania).
I am glad that my school and my passion is now sold on good money (i have one good sold about Europe, too).
In the future i will try to make more good looking maps.

To more sales ...

The 1000th sales

posted on 22nd of november, 2009

Hi. Yesterday was the 1000th sales day, a very important milestone for me on Dreamstime.
The picture was made last spring in Rome, in a shiny warm day. Fontana di Trevi is a "to do" place to visit in this historical city of Europe.
