The magic of views

posted on 14th of february, 2013

Recently I have reached 100 uploaded and accepted photos. This is not very impressive and also none of the images was sold. But this is now what I want to talk about today.

Let's look at this pepper photo. It's nothing special and was taken nearly two years ago, while I was preparing food for lunch in my new (at that time) bright and beautiful kitchen. It was not supposed for stocks, but later, when I learned about such places as Dreamstime, i processed it and uploaded. It was accepted, never sold. But it has nearly 200 views. And so I'm at a full stop: is it so badly done, that it interests people, but they do not want to buy it, or something else? Maybe it has wrong description or keywords?
