This may not be much for most of the DT contributors (more experienced and with a longer history here on DT) ... but for me, a two months old (DT wise) contributor with amateur experience, I have the following to be proud about:
- managed to get my first 250 images accepted with a fair ratio of acceptance of 66% (most of my rejections were motivated with "too many images from the same series");
- just got my 11th sale though I was pretty skeptical about any sales through my first few months;
- got my exclusivity with DT ... so ... a big THANKS to the DT admins!!
- last but not least I managed to make some friends here to share some experience and mostly to learn from.
So, while I'm bragging about these reasons, don't be shy, visit my portfolio
and hopefully BUY (rhimes with "shy" :))
