Lenuta, I will tell you the truth, I am very serious about this and please don't take it personally (I am a big fan of you, you are in my fav list). So: people are looking at this very fine pictures to see some details of that wild animals or fish etc. So you have a lot of views because they click on the image. But this kind of photos are very hard to sell because there are many similar on the internet. And many more for free. Animals is a very well covered subject. Wish you good sales and a happy new year! All my best.

"do you really think that this picture [imgr]22002486[/imgr] has no potential".

I'm pretty sure it will not sell as it is, messy grass and looks like a snapshot rather than a professional picture that you may see on a card. It may be the shooting angle and harsh backlight. A fill flash would have done wonders here and I would have lay down low to shoot straight at them.

The biggest point which seems to be missed amongst the fight on who has the most beautiful portfolio ( and beautiful has nothing to do with stock ) is your title. I think keywords have been mentioned but is someone going to search for a "unoffending ferocious clean beast" for example? I'm pretty sure no one is going to search for a lionet, I don't even think it's an English word. You need to make the image findable by the majority, the the title should be something like "Lion cub with cat". Drop and change at least 1 third of your keywords. It may then generate some sales. Good luck and keep learning :)

Ask yourself: "Who is a potential buyer of this image?" and "Which keywords will use a potential buyer to find my image?". In another words - who have needs to buy an image of lion and cat? My opinion is this image is oriented to bloggers. But how many articles (blogs) are about a lion and cat? Solution could be better keywords. I miss in your keywords: friendship, friends, friendly, curios, play, playful, playfulness, frisky. With these keywords you could have more potential buyers. On the other hand these keywords are more competitive.

And one more thing. The cat on image is very small and hidden behind the grass. On the smallest preview we can't see the cat very well. Maybe it is the reason why you have lots of views but no sale. People are curios where is the cat. Solution is ask yourself during taking photo: "What is important on my image and is it clearly visible on a small preview?".

Sure alot of responses to this one..
Without commenting on image quality, patience is required. I have images on line that have not had a sale, and have asked myself why I bothered to put it up. Then suddenly it gets two or three sales in a row. There is no way to predict these things.

Perhaps they have not been found, perhaps you describe the keywords are not in place. The waiting is the best way to continue to pass more creative pictures.I believe you have a lot of sales!
