No worry, Pzmphoto. Every people has a different favorites and prefer styles. A people may buying the very detailed photos, but the other people didn't like very detailed photos and they prefer the basic photo. Who knows? I hope a customer comes to us (I mean to everyone). Thanks to you too!
Wow, 32 sales in the first year... It means 2-3 sales every month. A great sale maybe...
Yes, I'm following Seawatch1. Your photos are centered. No places for writing. If you can, you continue like this, but you make some other perspectives (from right, centered, from left, up and down). Or you can make some panorama photos where you can combine photos from right and left, up and down. For example : page
May I offer an observation? 1st, your key-wording is off. Killer lake? Why? The tree stumps? We need something more obvious to tie that phrase to the lake. 2nd, all your pictures are centered. Where does one put text if the photo is to be used for more than a travel image to accompany an article? And 3rd, your close up photos are mostly out of focus, or at least not quite as sharp as they could be.
Yes, it's right. I also joined Dreamstime 22 days ago. I uploaded 65 photos, 2 videos and 1 illustration until now. I wrote this article (you can take a look) and almost 700 times read until now, at least 600 reads in first 3 days. My portfolio exposure come to 0.01% in first 2 weeks. And then I submit for exclusivity and I accepted. Yes, I might not have a sale until now, but I received bonus of exclusivity (13.6$) a few days ago. I think if we keep promoting our products (such as illustrations), it may will be sold in a lesser time.
Keep moving and thanks for sharing your experiences. -Muhlis Gürsoy-
