Maybe a good thing

I'm bad about overlooking things (even some right in front of me).
I looked up ducks fighting and found very few (most with little sales).
But i took the chance anyway and uploaded one. Hopeflly mine will be the rare one to be accepted and get sales. It never would happen unless i tried.

Fingers and eyes crossed.

Dan, you did a really smart thing, something that even experienced stockers fail to do: You researched a concept to see how well it sells.

Unfortunately, DUCKS FIGHTING do not sell well.

Whatever happened to those wedding pictures you were going to upload? It would be great to see that kind of work from you.

Ducks fighting is an occasion that you should upload because it's really rare. It won't bring you sales, but since you didn't spend money or extra effort. One day you can be the lucky one to be searched and found :)

Wisconsinart - the one i tried to upload here were rejected. I may go back and try some more. As for the duck fighting - you never know.
As Parkinsoniper said - it's rare and i took it along with oter duck pics. It could surprise us all.

Are those two ducks males? Than you can keyword it in a way that they fight for female :) (or tailor it to any kind of competition) - that is not such rare concept in life...
and editing images :)...

Janceluch - there's about 5 or 6 of them fighting. You can't tell if they're male or not - too much muddy water swirling about.

Lets hope this one photograph does not join the long list of images you have told us about that then never appear on here. After nearly 5 years here and nearly 500 posts on the forum boards can I ask you a question to help you? What have you learned about photography and specifically stock photography?

Hi Dan! I hope your picture gets approved ,but I think more importantly, I hope you enjoyed taking it. I might be speaking out of turn but some of your threads remind me of someone I know whos quite talented but dosent see himself as such and refuses to join and upload pictures to agencies. Personally I try to learn from rejections, and take in all there is to learn on the boards, but what I submit is what I enjoyed shooting in the first place and let the reviewers take it from there. If you think on it too much you'll never upload anything. Best wishes!
