Popular or unique?

Which type of picture will sell better? Popular or unique?

For popular pictures, can be found more easily but may be others better than yours..?

For unique pictures, less chance to be found, there for not many sales..

This one is consider popular picture, you can find many similar picture as this but no sale so far..

This one I would say it is unique since no other pictures have the same concept as this, but whether sell well or not, never know?

and this one are both popular and unique, got the most sales!

Conclusion: If your picture are both popular and unique, must sell very well.

What is your opinion?

i agree, with the first image, it is a very common image, anyone can go out and take a photo of a sea / mountain scene, the other 2 images, took thought and preparation!

I thought like Creativei too, but none of my vector images was sold yet, all my sales (5 up to this day) were unique, big paintings. I wonder, why's that..

Well I guess to be popular our images should be what the user is looking for, Well for me vectors sells more than images, I give bonus through vector, in all my vectors images you can find more elements and not limited to one. Thats the reason I'm concentrating more on vector.
