I have had quite a bit happen lately, and I wanted to share it with you all. I'm currently up to 58 sales. My last sale bumped my first image into Level 3.

Looking further back (soon after 50 sales), I received my first payment. It was the a hard-earned $100, considering it took a couple years to obtain! :) However, I'm glad to see my camera equipment doing something productive and profitable. I'm hoping the next check comes a little faster, but my sales have been slow and cheap lately. It's inevitable that these slow times will come, but it always seems to pick up again later.

In the meanwhile, though, I haven't been idle. I just launched a website, CyberStream.us. I put some of my photos on there (I'm still filling the galleries). Any photos that are available on Dreamstime have a link to their respective pages. The rest are for your enjoyment. I'm excited because now I can share my photos regardless of whether they make it onto DT. For those of you who are interested, there is also my CyberStream blog which is mainly technical web development articles, although I'll also post articles on photography, post-processing and graphics creation in Photoshop and Gimp.

I'd love to hear your critique of my website, or any other comments you might have!

Thanks for the comments everyone. For those who are visiting it right now, please bear with me because I'm encountering several bugs as I upload the updated pages. I reduced the font-size of the headings a little (not visible online yet). Thanks for your thoughts on the watermark, Gavril. Simple, small watermarks are easy to remove in certain images. I didn't want to take the risk of losing images, so I made it fairly large. If you observe the slideshow (it's down right now) on the homepage, it becomes quite apparent that it is not a part of the actual photo. There's my reasoning behind it. I'm thankful for any critiques I receive!

Nice accomplishment. If you want a critique of the website, what really bugged my is the huge copyright symbol. Not so much the typography, I did not notice that, but for some pictures it is hard to realise at the beginning that the copyright is just copyright and not part of the picture. especially for the sky pictures.

The images are spectacular! About your website, the only small thing I can say is that the typography (for me) is a little bigger, but everything else its great! Great job

Nice work! But honestly I think the letters are so big! You could make the font smaller! Good luck & congratulations for your first payment!
