My First RAW Picture Sold

Several days ago, I was surprised that my account number jumped up suddenly. After a survey, I found that a picture of mine was bought by someone in the raw format. The prize of the picture in this format is more expensive than that in the jpg format, even than in the largest size.

In my knowledge, the photoes in RAW format remain all infomations and detail of lights and figures. It is a very useful format because all other kinds of format can be transformed from it. It provides a largest re-creation room in art.

The selling costed 16 credits and brought me 7.27 dollars. This was my highest level in the picture prize, in other words, the selling set the newest prize record of mine.

The picture was about the topic of air pollution. It was taken in around 2 years ago, in a heavy industry zone in the northeast of China. The picture was bought for several times, but the last bought brought it to 2 level from 1 level.

Another photo taken in the same time brought me another surprise last year. The editor informed me that the picture was edited and used in a teaching book of Hong Kong middle school. It was in jpg format then.

But in this time, Who bought it? Where it was used? A series questions accrued in my mind.

I wish such a new surprise come to me frequently.
