110 Approvals in 10 days

After a great 14 day trip, time to chill out, relax and get away from everything I decided to upload a few shots on my return and see how things went.

To my delight I have now had 110 images accepted in the last 10 days with an acceptance ratio of around 75%

This is a massive contrast than when I started on here just over a year ago and saw around 15 accepted and 60 rejected in my first month on here.

So what's the difference? Well I did not get too disheartened with the rejections as in all fairness the reasons given were spot on, make sure you take notice of these as they are not done for fun and it's a great tool to learn from and self improve. Don't be afraid to resubmit shots, initially a rejection meant I would leave it and move on. Now if it's do do with say noise, composition, something you can do something about, then don't be afraid, change it and try to resubmit it. I normally let the reviewer know what I have done differently this time in the notes for the editor section.

For the past 6 months or so I have been averaging around a sale a day and this is really giving me the incentive to push on. I know that my portfolio is pretty average but I hope to improve on this as my abilities/knowledge grow in photography and in my post production work flow.

I'm not the first and will not be the last to say it but for all the newer members out there it's really true that the more you put in to stock the more you get out.

As you build your portfolio things do speed up and get better, like earnings. 12 months for my first

Well I wish you all great success and many happy hours doing what I hope you really love.

All the best,

Brett

P.S HAPPY HALLOWEEN :-)

Most are, in fact most my portfolio is made up from travel shots. Something I enjoy as I watch, learn and work on other stock areas of photography. Thanks for taking a look :-)

Correct me if i am wrong. Seems like most of you photos here were taken during your tours? I casually went through them and note quite a number of scenery shots : )
