Free images section. Worth it? (long story short)

posted on 5th of november, 2015

Today I received from Dreamstime an email notification about my images that was 3 years without a sold.
I went there and saw many i took in Norway and left some for free section.
One of them was a bit difficult, because I saw potential in be sold.. Then I left it..


4 hours later, this foto has been sold, with a profit of 9.10 dollars.
If I had let it on the free section, it would had gave no profit.
It is like look to the moon and feel hunry, in other words, has no sense or meaning... just luck, but happened.

Rather ironic, yes, this venture is a combination of skill and serendipity, happy coincidence.

Haotian, I don't think either... but I am a buyer too, and I understand that Dreamstime.com must get rid of images that are not selling any after 3 or 4 years.
