  1. Yeah, I agree. I'm planning to upload 10-20 images per week to at least boost my portfolio. (Sadly, I only have 1 day off per week to do photography). Anyways, thanks for the compliment.
  2. Wow, congrats! Poor me... I only got 1 DL at 0.10c so far (this month).
  3. You're right. As I checked, AS's minimum sub royalty rate is 0.33/image (both my DL's were lower than min.). I don't know why but I don't really mind. Its just my first DLs anyways.
  4. I checked AS's royalty rates structure and seems like mine were below the minimum subscription royalty amounts. Could be because I'm new to AS and/or its my first DL's? Hmmm.. anyway, I won't complain.. its still better than 0.10c/image. 😁
  5. Wow! I had my first ever (two) DL's this week in AS but were only 0.23 & 0.31 .. is this normal royalty they pay for an image?

  7. Yeah.. I get what you mean. Just my opinion I think f8 to f11 is the ideal aperture for landscapes (the f6.3 i used might be a bit higher for that shot).
  8. I think you're right about the logos showing on this photo and the lower aperture I used (f 6.3) - should had been higher. Thanks for the comment, I will improve next time 😊
  9. That wall is a 200+ year old hwaseong fortress (public park) in South Korea but its not listed in SS known "restricted" places in Asia. My intended subject is the contrast between the green garden and highly urbanized place on the other side - which is divided by that old wall in the middle. However, I honestly made a mistake also by poorly titling this photo (quite vague too). My title was "Landscape View of Suwon City South Korea". 😁 As for their "out of focus" comment, they always use this comment in my rejected photos lately. Even to photos taken with tripod, I still get similar comments. Really frustrating sometimes. Anyways, I'll try your suggestion on making the title more consistent with the photos' subject and/or focus and hopefully it would reduce my rejections rate.
  10. @Whiteaster I also received similar rejection comments all the time. Any advise how to avoid this type of rejection?
