This is my most downloaded photo ever. It is one my first photos and I am amazed that it still sells! I wonder what makes it tick with people!

Thank you very much for all your comments. It is always nice to understand from other's perspective on how a photo works for many different people in different ways :)
Because it is a nice image with sunny skies, has copy space at the bottom, and has people indulging in leisure activities (boating). And, people like castles and apparently castles in Cyprus!
It is a nice image, useful for many people.
well it makes me want to visit there :)
I personally think, it's because if you search for "cyprus castle" you will only get very few images of the castle ... from those few, you get only a handful over the water and there are only 2 clean and nice composition of big proportion of the castle. Both sell well ... and there is apparently demand for cyprus castle images :)
Maybe because its classic composition, clean, calm and keeps the eye floating around it. Its really good shot.
From my point of view in this photo there is the concept of "arrival to the port", that is the same as "to reach an objective". Probably this is the reason because it sell.
