That's a great achievement, congratulations! I can understand why you thought the photo in your blog might not be approved - I often get rejections because of lack of DOF. And yet it's a great shot, a great seller and a good reminder, as you are saying, that it worth taking some risks.
First of all, congratulations!!! And secondly, thank you for sharing that story! Taking chances is a big part of being a stock photographer, and if we worry too much about our approval rating, we won't submit photos, we won't learn from our mistakes, and we will never improve. I can only hope that one day I can celebrate 1000 sales too. :-) You have given me hope. :-)
