As you know, I sell pictures via Dreamstime. Over the years, I sell, on the average, seven pictures per month. So, selling seven pictures in one day is quite an exception.

Last week, somebody bought seven pictures of Yellow Mountain at once. Here is my first blog on my trip to Yellow Mountain. Going there was quite a challenge, however, I have very good memories and the pictures are very popular. Some of them have been sold five times.

Dreamstime sells pictures in various formats ranging from Extra Small (480 pixels) to Highest Size (over 12MP; MP stands for Mega Pixels and refers to the number of pixels in the sensor). Because I shoot NEF, I also provide the RAW version to Dreamstime (36.6MP). This RAW version is called Additional Format. Providing the  Additional Format basically doubles the price I get for a picture, except for subscriptions.

In this case, the buyer had a subscription, so hardly any income, however, it is nice to realize that the buyer was looking for pictures of the highest technical quality: Nikon D800 camera with the Nikon 16-35/4.0 G AF-S ED VR wide angle lens. Quite a superb combination giving very sharp pictures.

Selling seven pictures in one day gives a rewarding feeling!
