5 Months dreamtime

posted on 30th of may, 2010

After 5 months at dreamtime I decided to write my first blog. First impression was a cold shower after approval of only 5 of my 50 images. Reading through the comments and trying to work to it worked. I hardly get rejections due to bad lighting, poor contrast any more.

I currently have 96 uploads today, hoping to hit the 100 uploads next week.

A couple of days ago I was happily surpised with mij first level 2 image.

As I do not have a fancy studio, I try to use natural light if possible. "Strawberry snack" photo for example is taken outside and background cleaned up on the laptop.

Another exciting moment was the approval of a photo of my fun car, a VW beetle in the colors of a mexican taxi (yes I really own this car and drive it on a regular base.)

Everyone thanks for the advice and I'm sorry to annoy the reveiewer with my submissions which they had to reject for reasonable reasons.

My question to you about, not even if you do good.
Hard work together!

I only had one image on 3rd June 2009 but now have 655 images on-line one year later. I understand your initial problems all too well ....... my rejections were many in early days and even now I don't get everything right. Some days rejections flood in ! So your perseverance has paid off. Well done. David.

Yeah, it's often easier just to try something else, but your work on getting shots accepted has paid off with a level 2, so well done.
