Two weeks already

posted on 7th of may, 2011

My experience of contributor has only two weeks’ time.

In this short period, I submitted 41 accepted pictures, 14 rejected, 9 pending by today and no sale yet. I learned from the rejection of what DT wanted as pictures and what DT don't want as picture in their database.

The given reasons are objectives and justified for all my rejected pictures until today.

I browsed the database and had seen that there is not a lot of picture list on DT regarding "clingendael" Japanese Garden. So, I went there to capture some.

I submitted one which is very close to this one. But how much was my surprise to see my picture rejected, not for a technical reason but for the reason that it wasn't what DT are looking for and only this reason. I can see only two differences; one is the point...

Thanks for your warms encouragements. This morning, I took my bicycle (as a dutch ;) does) and return to the garden located 2Km only from my area. The weather was nice, sunny, bright and warm. I learned from my rejected picture by being more picky in composition. I resubmit a new one. The pending ID of the picture is 19426682. Wait and see again if this new one will be rejected with the same reason or not. I hope that I will not be.

Be zen, zen and zen !

posted on 10th of may, 2011

© Digikhmer (Help) I think that "Zen" is a keyword for all contributors of the dreamstime community. Because, whatever you think about your picture, you have to accept the judgment and go beyond the frustration.

And this is the picture that I am really proud of. This is the first time that I went to the same place several time. It is also the first time that I took time to seat down in front the scene, to have a look around me to see where is the sun, to wait patiently the good moment to press on the button of my camera. Until now, I felt quite shy to capture pictures with a lot of people around me and I captured as much as I can before leaving the place in a shortest time possible. Not this time because I wanted a perfect composition and nobody must be in my frame ;)

One month on DT & still trying to improve the AR ...

posted on 18th of may, 2011

Which word come in your mind when you come to talk about Netherlands or Holland ?

I think most of you must say "tulips", "windmill" or "coffeshop" ;) or in the other way round.

Before coming on the lowland, I was very interested by the windmill. Whenever I have a free week-end, I jumped on my bicycle like a dutch guy and cycle around to discover a new windmill that I do not capture yet.

Here is my collection of the one that I found more interesting and I wish to share with you.


It is worth to have a visit of the lowland specially during...

Another milestone and new collection ...

posted on 23rd of may, 2011

Today, I achieved another milestone with the collection of the picture of the International Criminal Court building pictures. It, commonly, called ICC.

As I said, I have hundred picture uploaded with a lot of pains, of appointments, rejections but above all this, I feel like being very grateful to the reviewers for obliging me to improve my skills.

I hope that this collection will have some success because, there is nothing about this building comparing to what it hosts inside.

Kind regards from Netherlands.

Temple of Preah Vihear (Cambodia v. Thailand)

posted on 31st of may, 2011


Normally I'm not interested in politics but it's different this time.
My country has tried to fight peacefully to recognize its rights to the Temple of Preah Vihear located on the northern border with Thailand. This temple has been the subject of a trial in which the International Court of Justice has designated as belonging to Cambodia in 1962. It turns out that the boundaries between the two countries wasn't clear that's why the two countries engaged in fighting position and occupation of the temple. To stop this, Cambodia try again to make to re-recognize his rights before the Court and to stop the fighting.

It was a unique and indescribable feeling that draws me to this room is the room of the International Court of Justice....
