For example, your photo of chrysanthemum (18510424) need more light and more vivid colors.

Beautiful photos with traditionally dressed people! I like them.

I'm not a senior photographer nor very successful.
But what I can suggest from my limited experience:

1) Please take more care of your keywords.
Example: Your photo: 8248579 with the girl in traditional clothes and the sword.
Missing keywords: tradition, traditional, historical, culture, cultural, lady, human, performance,
sword, person, attraction, weapon, dangerous, exotic, etc.
Please also mention the name of the event, which minority (?), which part of China, and what
is the meaning of this event. Downloading such photos as "editorial" instead of "Royalty free"
can cause more attention and you don't need a model release.

2) For your landscape photos: Please use a polarization filter to make the sky really blue and the
colors more bright.

3) Take part in blogs to make a little bit marketing for your portfolio.
4) Avoid cropping. Without cropping the photos are more useful for buyers.

I specially like your portrait photos! Zaijian.

Hi, you have great images, but until recently you started to upload more images, I have seen that in DT people almost not sell images until you reach more than 100 images. So I guess you will be doing better as you are uploading more and more.

Hello Claudio! Thank you very much for your help and advice guidance. Thank you again!

I try to give you some suggestions, not as DT senior member but with my experience of photograper from a long time.
You must try to reduce any additional detail with respect to the main subject. I make a few examples:

Your picture "Snow" (22081995) was uploaded recently but is being sold because the two main parties (the tree and the path) are well highlighted and the "concept of the picture" is clear.
In the image "Drum housing" (7761856) is visible a column, and only a part of the other column. These are elements that disturb. Or are clearly seen both the columns, or both must disappear. In the following image of the same type (7761866) the sky is too white and cover a too large a portion of the photo.
The image "Tree" (7948920) uses brightness and color that make the tree not very evident respect to the background.
In general, the images should be more simple, try to use more zooming to the subject that you are interested you represent.
I do not think that sending more pictures of the same subject will produce more sales. Try to select those few that are really different.
Seems to me that many pictures of landscapes have little saturation as if they were taken in bright sunlight. Try to take pictures in the evening or early in the morning. Or use Photoshop or Gimp to increase saturation.
Finally I love much your latest images of parades and people. I think that they will be sold over time.
