Ruminations on Dreamstime Stock Rank game

I've been periodically reading DT blogs, and recently noticed some kind of obviously ranking label - wheel with a wing. My curiosity made me click on it and so I discovered the game (or a training tool) of the Stock Rank.I could confess, though my rating is till low and I don't understand reasons why one image sells much better then another in about half of the cases, it's still proven to be very, very useful. I've already learned couple of unbeatable image constitutions, giving you invariably... continue reading
