Just want to share with you..
My satisfaction is different now!
At first, I was very happy and satisfy when my sales increasing ..
But now, I will be more happy if my uploads increasing..
Meaning, I will be more satisfied if an image(especially assignment file) is accepted, compared with having a sale.
Oppositely, I will be more depressed if my satisfied photo/image is rejected, compared with no sales.
Anyone has the same feeling as mine..?
Now, the difficult task is to increase my uploads with quality picture..
Let's go shooting! :)

For me it's a step satisfaction process... very happy when I feel I've shot interesting photos (frustrated when I can't shoot or miss it totally), satisfied when they get accepted and get views (of course not happy when they rejected), but the sale is what completes the process really. No sales on a photo I love is very disappointing to me. The sale on the photo is the ultimate acceptance.
Thanks all! Ha, now another satisfaction came from receiving comments.. :)
That`s true! Good luck with your wishes!
I LOVED your assignment pic!
I feel the same way as you.... I need to increase my portfolio too.
Sadly I've never yet been happy with my sales or acceptance ratio. Hopefully that day will come! You have a superb portfolio which is why your one of my favourites!
Great portfolio! Good luck!
Hi, I agree with you, at first I did not mind a lot of sales and acceptances now I wake up in the morning and the first thing I do is open DT! Good day!
Your portfolio bears out your objective....... quality, quality, quality. David.
Same here )) And more time i spend on the file - the better i feel afterwards, when the image gets finally accepted
Though sometimes I know in advance that my image is only 50 % good, for example great composition, but some small quality problems or other way around. Then editor might approve such images if he has a good mood. And i noticed for myself that that kind of submissions dont return much joy. Why? Because i understand that we as a photographer community should strive to submit quality things to ensure that designers continue to like Dreamstime and it keeps positioned on market as great place with great variety of cool pictures.. then we will have more sales, joy and so on..
I agree with you for me the fundamental part is achieving the technical quality that DT require on a consistant basis, sales are for me a bi product of that. That is what I tell myself anyway ;)
