My bestseller used on a website!

Now this is something really exciting! I casually searched my bestselling image, the comet and moon night scene...and found it on a binocular related website along with many other spectacular images. This isn't really the typical "bestseller" with 300 downloads. It only has 5 downloads...but for me that is quite a good sale rate because this file isn't even 6 months old. This would make it to level 5 one day (nobody got arrested for dreaming yet). :)

Here is where it is used: Which-binoculars

The other images used there are truly spectacular, probably all from Dreamstime. I can't imagine how mine found a place there. I spend at least 10-15 minutes on EVERY image, post processing it carefully to get the right colors and get a balance between the "natural" and "imaginary" aspects of an image. So this time spent isn't an overkill I guess. More images coming up soon....

Waiting to get a Di-466 flash now. Cheaper one than the Canon speedlites...so maybe I can get 2 or 3 more units with subsequent payouts and have a proper lighting setup one of these days.

Also sold my only proper food photo:

The food photo earned enough to buy another kilo of sweets. No harm, I love edible models.

It turned up on the very first row when I searched "Indian sweets". Now...I spend around 5-10 minutes on even keywording. That wasn't an overkill either. Yeah, it is frustrating. Because I have over 300 images lined up for post processing and keywording and uploading.

Thanks to 20 Kbps blindingly lightning fast Indian internet connection. By the time one image uploads, I am usually easily able to get 10 more images ready for upload.

90 sales so far. Get me a 3-digit number soon DT!

Thanks!
Pindiyath100, I cannot be a knight... I am the researcher. I design and research for the king. I'm sure he wouldn't send me to war. He can't risk it. There is no replacement for my post available (I already got them exiled).
