Set the Price-SR-EL Sale

Shootalot
I just had my first request for a SR-EL sale. Dreamstime's default price is $800. I agreed to the default price. Is $800 a fair price or should I ask for more? Once I sell the photo the photo is removed from the Dreamstime database. Please let me know what your SR-EL photos are selling for. Thanks.

Firstly remember that the $800 is the total price so DT take their cut, as a none exclusive how much do you get, about 40%? Once sold it and all similar have to be removed and can't be sold anywhere again, ever. Which picture is it? Is it likely to make more money over the next 10 + years. If it's not a special shot I would sell it as that's what we are here for and just keep creating new content for your portfolio.
I have never had such a request but I would certainly give it some thought, have you made a decision yet?

If it's a celebrity naked you must go for more! If it's a tomato on a table please sell it right now!

This is the shot-a house with considerable storm damage. Maybe state farm or allstate is the buyer. Don't know. At any rate it has been downloaded several times since the request at the normal price. It has not sold at the sr-el price of $800. I am going to set the price at $3000-see if I get lucky. The buyer might not want to spend that much.

Insurance should fix all of the damage and I did not mention the exact address of the house-it could be anywhere in washington dc. Go figure.

no joke, you must at once email DT support and ask for advice, they have great experience. Good luck!
