Man you must be really frustrated. Nobody said it's easy.
hahaha, I read the sarcasm in the post right off the bat. However, I can just imagine a tonne of new photographers who read it will be off to the fruit and veggie shop, looking for that perfect, shiny, red, ripe tomato that will make them their first million. Or they'll be spending hours strategically placing their stacked coins in a way that will knock a reviewers socks off.
I's true, Editors love good shots of beautiful, fresh, juicy tomatoes! They even occasionally reward them with the prestigious Editors Choice award, and they actually sell really well! ED Tomatoes
Ah, but the trick is to know how to shoot a tomato! And that's not given to everyone!
Wisconsinart, in his sarcasm, has actually made a point. He's a photographer and not a graphic designer so he can not really understand that there is a nearly constant need for fresh images in the areas he mentions.
I, for example, have photographed blue sky with different configurations of cloud, many many times, for my own use, simply because I can't find the images I need in stock. How much money could Wisconsinart have made from me if he had those shots in his portfolio. Yuri Arcurs seems to specialize in shots of pretty girls with cellphones and laptops, but that's probably a bad example since Yuri struggles with success as well.

LOOOL!! ;)))))) Great blog! Keep them coming! :) I'll go and shoot some clouds now. Okay, not now, it's night here, but maybe tomorrow. I never thought about different cloud shapes collection. I will do it. :) Thanks!
