Final Exposure

posted on 17th of june, 2012

This is a self-marketing blog in the hopes of bringing a last-chance exposure to a few of my old files. I really like them but they're not selling and already got or will soon get the notice of 1 month before becoming free/re-keyworded/disabled.

I'm leaning towards re-keywording if they don't get a download before their time is due as I really like them and want them to remain in my portfolio here! They remind me of some good old days :)

You're too sentimental Eliane! I do like the photos and want to hear the stories behind them :)

Thank you all!
Inyrdreams: Nooo don't panic, these are very, very old files more than 3 years old :)

I'm in the same situation with some of my very old images... I hope you get sales soon, or use the re-keyword option

@Andromatic: Thanks a lot for your comment - of course I'll try the assignment as usual... with no high hopes for anything to get accepted :D
@Mike2focus: I got my foot bloodied from the thorns when I took this photo - I wanted everything to be perfectly aligned & the bush was at a weird angle!! I felt the pain only when the shooting stopped :P
Thank you dear Cynthia :)
@Debramillet: *hug*

These are nice photos. I'm really surprised "Thorny Background" didn't sell, it's a very interesting pattern! Best wishes and luck to you :-) M

Very nice photos, I hope this strategy works for you and brings sthem some attention.

Hi Eliane, this is a very nice set of background images. I like all of them, sincerely. They represent those OBVIOUS subjects, as some would call it, and it is a pity they did not sell in their time. Nowadays it might be a bit too late for these files simply for the stupid reason of too few Megapixels, as I noticed most of them are ~5 Mp. Still I believe these images might have worked pretty well for say mobile phone and iPad backgrounds - Wish you the buyers in need checked this blog! :-) Also, you might want to participate in this competition. Good luck!

I hope you can have sales in one each of them!
