This month has been great!I have taken a lot of images i many different situations and locations. I have never been this productive in stock before. I guess it pays of to shoot shoot shoot, and learn about your mistakes and rejections. MILESTONE #1I have 56 accepted image this month,and thats feels great. May not sound a lot to all professionals out there. But for me its a quite of a achievement, as i have a busy life working in the security sector. MILESTONE #2I have now passed... continue reading
I just had my 150th image accepted and another 30-40 are waiting to be reviewed.Over the last few months, dreamstime has improved the way that I process my images.Feedback that we receive on rejected images is great and I took it and applied it to my processing style.Before, I over-processed a lot of my images (filters, saturation and such).Now I try to do the minimum to make it work for more buyers.Also, first batch that I uploaded, I had few images rejected due to dirt spots... continue reading

Wow, what a waste of time and... continue reading
It is the second assignment I have attempted. The previous one, apocalypse, was really something that I would have loved to get into...but unfortunately I had 50 uploads only when half the month was gone. Then I uploaded two files which were rejected anyway for being too simplistic. It was VERY annoying and discouraging because I had spent 3 days creating that illustration. It was a very detailed one. I just decided I'd not submit to an assignment again till I get 500+ files online. I told myself... continue reading
