Hi everyone! I'm new to stock sites and was wondering if anyone would have some advice for me. I'm slowly putting more and more photos up. As you can probably tell, photography for me is a hobby rather than a main earner, so my progress at this stage is slow.
I was wondering what you thought of what I have up already and how I could improve the quality/appeal of my photos for sale.

Dear Ksenianz, It it great that you have your first sale already by just uploading 17 files.

I think your photos are very good and have commerical elements.

I am still waiting for my very first sale.

It seems to me that you are on the right way, continues to upload images, be patient and you'll see that something will come.
Not so important.
