The Roman Numeral C… the Prefix Centi- … the Word Hundred… Yes, 100!

posted on 26th of may, 2010

Good morning my dear Dreamstimers!

Indeed it was a good morning for me. I received two sweet, complimentary comments from fellow-DTers. Then, looking at the top right hand corner of my DT page, there was an increase in my earnings to date, which hinted to me that… drumrolllll…

Yes, I celebrate my 100th today! Thanks DT! Thanks to all the buyers!!!

My friend’s comment to me when I called her to share this excitement was, “I remember one of our many DT-conversations when your goal was to reach 50 uploads so you could become exclusive, now you’ve reached 100 downloads?! That’s really something.” And I say, yes, Dreamstime is really something!

Eight months ago when I first heard about DT, the first section that I visited was the Blogs--so I can “eavesdrop” on discussions here with the main goal of finding out if sales/payouts really do happen. I’m still relatively new here, but for those of my fellow-newbies who still might have doubts of when that 1st or next sales will come, just scroll through this week’s blogs and you’ll find at least two others who also celebrated their 100th. They do happen… a lot!

We are in good hands here, the editors know what they’re doing, they know what sells. Don’t take it personal if a lot of rejections come your way, look at them as a challenge and a learning tool.

I wish everyone a great day today!

And oh yes, here’s my 100th sale, which happens to be my first stab at concept images, too (which I doubted also if it’ll even be accepted). Having said that, if I may close with a reminder to all of us who are still in the learning curve here: I encourage you to give your ideas a try, allow the professional eyes of the editors here to be the judge, and the buyers will give the verdict!

Thanks for everyone's comments and well wishes. I'm shooting for 365 uploads by 9/9--my 1st year here.

@Ferdie: You have a good variety in your PF. You'd be surprised, you'll be on your 100th before you know it, keep shooting, uploading and have fun with it!

About me

My name is Juvy. Jennifer, the name on my profile, is my youngest daughter—she is the inspiration behind my creative work, not only in photography but also in many other things. As a very close friend of ours put it, Jennifer brings out the best in Juvy. So if you like my images, kudos to Jennifer; otherwise, well... we have Juvy to blame for. A little about me: I am a wife and a mother, first and foremost. By profession, I am an accountant, but wish that I am a photographer instead!
