@moonwalker: maybe it is, could be. But even is has to be sellable I want to be unique too and maybe shoot some that is covered already but in a different way.

Hi Ramona. I don't mean to be pedantic but I think it is the subject of your pictures what "fails". I haven't sold that much in DT but I do in other places, and also I've seen statistics of people here. And what I've learned is that sometimes a picture that is "nice" is not necessarily commercial. People buy useful images, because that's the point, they need the image to use it somewhere. Try to follow market and society trends and you'll be selling quite soon. At the same time, try to be original, because the same subject for a search might return thousands of results and yours has to stand out among them. Also keywording is very important, you obviously need to be found before anyone could buy your pics. Use this tool, maybe it helps you like it did to me. Good luck!

Nice portfolio! It's possible that keywords played a part. For example:

 Happy sibling 

keywords to consider:
sibling, siblings, happy, happily, two, expressions, play, playing, portrait, children, kids, youngsters, cheerful, emotion, male, female, leaning, smiling, fun

On another note, with 500+ pics online, you know you can get $100+ bonus commissions if you become exclusive photographer?
