Unique & Useful
Look at the photo - nothing special, right? Except it's unique - there are simply not many photos of Canada's Oil Sands on Dreamstime. So when someone wants one, they're going to have to come to me.
Other photos may be more beautiful, more well-composed, but they probably won't sell as much.
Food for thought. Keep your shots unique and useful and you will get more downloads. And more $$$.
