Maybe there are similar ones?
Try posting photos like this on blog posts. A buyer might just bump on it and "hey I needed one like this!"?

I've gotten subscription sales without keywords. Must mean they are looking at my port.

I'd cut down on your keywords to the most important and most relevant 15 or 18.

Generic architecture. Well executed but not a good seller and it's an overdone subject.

Yeah. Views don't seem to have anything to do with photo downloads.

From the image number, it appears that this image is pretty new. Perhaps you're just jumping the gun and need to have a little more patience.

It's not always true. I have photos with 1 or 2 views and 1 or 2 sales and I have a photo with over 3000 views and no sales :)

I think it's a nice looking image. Be patient.

And speaking of views/sales... I think I hold the record there; over 18000 views in less than a year and still no sale ;) *thumbs up*

Astormfr, yes I do think that too many have a negative effect on sales.

Great shot! I don't see any problems in your keywords. At least nothing that would prevent sells.

Do you have similar problems with you other Shanghai night shots?

Cheers!
