I feel for you, great concept but I see why it was not downloaded. It's too complicated. The knot is too small, because the needle is too thin. So it is not evident on first glance, one can barely distinguish there is a knot. Sometimes good ideas just don't work out visually.

This is actually a great concept, Janceluch!! I believe the reason that it has not been downloaded is your keywords. If you were to re-evaluate those and add in "drug" "abuse" "rehab" "clinic", etc. I truly believe your views would go way up AND it would get purchased. Fix your keywords. This one will sell!!! The DT reviewer believed it would sell, that's why it got accepted. I believe it will sell too. Good luck!

thanks guys. I fully agree with you Gmarittai, - those are the problems I was concerned about since very first test shot... but this is the maximum I could get out of it without making compromises on proportions and initial idea... Anyway, I never regretted the time spent, as it was excellent mind-opener at beginning of my microstock journey :)

This is a good example, I think, of why literal keywording isn't always a good idea. It is highly unlikely, in my opinion, that a buyer will actually be searching for a needle with a knot in it. If they are, your image is so unique they will find it as long as you have knot and syringe or needle. I'd go for a more generic title like 'say no to drugs' or something like that... Nicely executed, but I agree it is probably hard to read in a thumbnail.

I really like the concept, but I had to zoom to actually see the knot. Without zooming I was seeing a drop on a needle, so maybe you should get closer.

Lovely story............ however could you not have had the knot out of focus so only a point on the body of the syringe was sharp and the ' fake ' knot would go visually undetected and only require a single, perhaps bracketed exposure, and no Photoshop ? David

Davidwatmough, I am not sure whether I understand your method - but with macro extension tubes the DOF was only about 1/3 of needle length (with pointy needle end in focus, the knot position was already blurred heavily), so impossible to do it with one shot...

Janceluch, your blog is a perfect example of how well the DT community works to help its members. I don't know if you got the type of feedback you were looking for, but I'll bet it was worth your time to post. Cheers!

When I first started playing with 3D and, before I got access to proper modelling tools, I had a similar concept (no knot though) and made a syringe from cylinders, spheres, and a cone. It never sold much either but was a very useful exercise. In this case the eventual sales are less important than having the idea and finding a way to make the idea come to life - lots of positives in this story.
