  1. Well, it says "powered by shutterstock". Does not look particularly dodgy.
  2. Presumably that money will also go to Shutterstock
  3. Awesome image, would definitely put it as desktop background.
  4. It's not purple fringing, but the heron's aura. Magic
  5. Awesome. Finally a positive post, I need more of those. Great achievement and beautiful, inspiring portfolio Ken. Thank you so much.
  6. Clouds and sky are kind of tricky to keep clean from noise. If you shoot at somewhat high iso or even slightly overdo with post-processing it is very easy to introduce noise and artefacts. Closely look at your photo at 100% resolution and you will probably find that the system got it right about the noise/artefacts.
  7. So it looks like that, contrary to popular belief, someone from SS is reading the forums after all.
  8. Out of topic, what an interesting port. Just love the neon lights collage, and colored hats photos, among others. It's the kind of photos that motivate me to go out and shoot.
  9. Please don't be so selfish. Think about the clients. Think about the poor stockholders. Think about the management and the company. I's not all about you. (irony warning)
  10. Some great photos in your portfolio, really love the work. So the skills are there, and apparently also some nice opportunities for rare and harder to find shots. All the ingredients are in place. As others told you now need to drastically ramp the number up in order to make some regular income. Make it a goal to reach 1000 photos, then you will start to see daily downloads and some money (still not a lot, let me tell you). At 3000-5000 strong photos the game will seriously change and you may start to see a significant income, instead of some pocket money. Unfortunately the game is tougher now
  11. Not true, aren't we the "frontline heros" he talks about, who sacrifice themselves for the SS community?
  12. Not true. Try this: go to McDonald's with your camera in plain sight (concealed carry of your weapon won't work). When it's your turn, casually drop to the cashier that you are a level 4 photographer at SS. First off, see how the attitude toward you will change and he/se will start to call you "sir" or "madam", instead of the "hey you" he treated you with when he thought you were a miserable level 1. Then, he will replace that hamburger you ordered with a BigMac, at the very same price. See, he now knows that this dollar you are paying with is made of 10 level 4 cents, instead of 10 level 1 ce
  13. You are mistaken. The 10 cents you get at level 4 are more valuable than the 10 cents you get at level 1. It's not "the same 10 cents" as you seem to imply.
  14. Or someone else's and the submit as yours. Looks very profitable.
  15. Very nice photos. I would either resubmit with no changes (except for the file names maybe), or downsize a bit, slightly edit the file name and resubmit. The reason for the file name change is that it allows to start fresh with a new unbiased review (hopefuly).
  16. It is entirely possible that your long exposure images have motion blur (no tripod, tripod not steady etc..), in this case SS will not accept them (rightfully so). I you could post an example of one of the rejected image here you may have some more informed advice on how to proceed.
  17. Computing this into your original earnings for 2021 looks like a challenging, high level computing task, do you have the right hardware
