Taking a risk

Here are two examples of a risk that I took last year. This is a random picture that I snapped at a local city fair and a crab on the beach while on vacation. Once I returned home and started going through all of the images I found these images but was worried that they would not be accepted or sell. I decided to take a risk and sent them in. Both pictures were accepted and have since sold, one twice.

This is a good illustration of the microstock market. Not every picture has to be a piece of art in order to sell.

Agree to this.
The one you least expected to be accepeted gets accepted, and then they get sold too. Its happened to me with 3 of my pictures.

Quite agree. Two my 3-level bestsellers are obviously not a pieces of art :)

There're certainly not as artistically beautiful and vibrant as your gorgeous bird on a cherry tree blossom, but there're nice shots too. As I improve my skills, I get much more picky with the pictures I submit. It's good in a way, but sometimes I wonder if I'm not missing opportunities by being too selective...

I guess you're right... Same thing has happaned to me, and also images that I think that are great and will sell very good don't really work. You always have to take the risk.
