Copy my keywords. I don't mind.
The trend of the year - photographers angry at someone copied their keywords. What a tragedy!!! What I'd like to ask these photographers about is: you make a lot of pictures and spend the hell of efforts and time on keywording. From where do you get extra time and energy to hang about sites and watch who stole your keywords? Don't you regret this time? Don't you think it's wasted? Can't you find a better way to use it? Or is it just another way to attract people to your pictures during seasonal fall in sales? If so, better say honestly - my pictures are not bought. May be you come and have a look at them? ;) Your pictures should talk for thamselves. Keywords are secondary. If your picture is better than others with the same keywords or matching more the buyer's needs is will be chosen in any case. If not, sorry....
Now to everyone who copies keywords for any reason (lack of idea which words should be included, or lack of the knowledge of English) - copy them from me. They may be not so perfect as the ones of photographers who spend hours to collect them (because I spend on this a minute maximum), but I don't mind. Keywords are not copirighted. You can also copy some of my ideas if you find them interesting. I know you'll do it in any case if you wish, so what's the use shouting? I'll be even flattered. Because I don't consider each of my works a masterpiece. I'm still developing ;) Ideas are not copirighted, too. Because the idea is nothing without execution. If you perform any of my ideas better than me, drop me a link, please, I'll probably later try to copy your technique ;))
As we say in Russia - be simpler and people will come to you.
Good luck to everyone.
