Every time I upload a picture I have some expectations related to it. Some of them are considered by me as potential bestsellers (never worked out ;). Others I see as photos addressed to very narrow niche of buyers and I do not expect them to fly high to the 3rd or 4th level in a couple of months.
I uploaded the photo below – a monument of polish astronomer Nicolas Copernicus – not expecting too much from it.
Imagine my surprise when it became my bestseller. OK, it's not so difficult in a portfolio where in order to be bestseller a photo has to be sold 3 times, but still… What surprised me even more was that all 3 sales occurred within 8 days and 2 of them even on the same day…
It's always a surprise when one of your more niche oriented images does well. I have one of the University of Paris that has done well for being a niche image. And to boot, it was initially rejected as being TOO niche! I appealed with an explanation and it was approved. Today it's a level 2. Yours is on its' way. Congratulations to you and best wishes for more!
