100 images on DT - finally! And watch for Iceland...Sweden...Estonia..

In January I had my 100th sale on DT, got a payout, and had 99 photos on DT. Planned , to easily make it an even 100.

Well... I'm getting another payout and had close to 100 more sales here, but I've been so busy I didn't upload much ... anywhere. Couple of rejects, then uploaded one photo before I went away (more on that later) - and now I have exactly 100 photos on DT to coincide with another payout.

I can't help thinking how regular payouts would be if I uploaded regularly. I spend way too much time thinking, processing and keywording. With NX2 I can just tweak photos until they're perfect - though I think the difference between "good" and "perfect" in my eyes is probably impossible for anyone else to see. Do any of you have that problem? I'm thinking I aught just shoot jpegs (kidding-even my point & shoot shoots RAW). So I just have to get faster and settle for "good."

Right now I especially need to speed up my workflow since I just got back from a fabulous trip to Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Iceland to shoot stock. I shot about 5,000 photos. I'm making a commitment to get 100 photos from my trip up here online within the next couple of months - if I don't, I want all you guys to bug me until I do it!

Here's my hundredth photo:

And here are a few of my best sellers this week:

The New York Marathon - this one sells best - actually licensed all of them this week.

This blue light blur is a perennial favorite. I think it will sell for years.

Typical photo for me - I have such trouble making decisions!

And finally, this is a best-seller for me elsewhere - it's been on DT since my last big upload in January but didn't sell until this week - now it's sold twice. It's one of my favorites - I love the beach, boats, lighthouses ... summer. A few more weeks of warm weather here. Gorgeous out today.

Cleaning up from 4 feet of water from Hurricane Irene and then it's time to start processing - I'll blog about it as I go. The trip was amazing. Can't wait to get the photos online!
