First week on DT: 9 uploads and 1st sale

posted on 28th of november, 2010

Hello everyone.

This is my first week on DT and I just want to record my first steps as a beginner.

I registered DT on Nov.19th, 2010 and began to upload my photos on Nov. 21st after a few researches on DT.

As I am not very clear of the acceptance standard of DT yet, I decided to upload a series of photos on the same subject but expreesed differently as a test.

I chose several photos from the album I took on the Christmas eve of last year at Nagoya port, Japan, which are mainly as follows:

Fortunately, most of them passed the reviewing.
I uploaded 15 pics in total last week and 9 of them were accepted, which made my acceptance ratio to be 60%.

Then I greeted my first sale for this 'Abstract Christmas tree light'. It was downloaded two days after it appeared online.

A big THANK YOU to the client who baught my image and a big THANK YOU to DT!

I also want to give my cordial thanks to my friend Xiye.

His views and skills on shooting and image preprocessing really helped me a lot.

His most popular pics which reached level 3 in a very short time also taught me a lot.

Finally, I am greatly encouraged by my first week on DT.

I will keep on shooting, working hard to make more photos accepted and more sales.

I would really welcome any comments and advice to put me forward.

Thanks a lot, everyone. Thanks a lot, DT :)
