First attempt

posted on 19th of july, 2013

..was a failure. Last year after i find out about Dreamstime from a friend i decided join and upload a picture, but the horror, the reviewer reject my photo...I was upset and alt+F4 to DT.

One year later i tried again... login, upload and again the horror, the reviewer reject my file, but this time i've read the reviewer reasons and tried to fixed. So fixed, resubmit and wait, wait, wait and then finally got my first approved file

From that moment i'm uploading and uploading...

P.S. hope my first attempt with this blog is not the same:D

That's great, never give up.

I was lucky. I submitted 3 photos for the first time and the reviewers were kind and accepted one. Then I uploaded a few more and some got accepted. But I really started to invest time and effort after somebody downloaded a file.
Still doing it on small scale compared to others but it turned into a hobby and gave some purpose and meaning to my photography.
This is a place where amateurs and professionals coexist peacefully.

All the best.

Congratulations Brocko. It does knock you back when your images are refused at first, it happens to most I think. Well done in bouncing back and mastering your efforts. Two sales as well, and your first blog attempt turned out fine. All in all a great success so far, all the best for the future here.
