Hi NZGMW and welcome.
Do what you do best with your photography, nothing wrong with looking at other images but your portfolio is all about your images. Get what images you want your stock photography to be and don't get stuck on what other people's style of photography is, we all see photography different.
In the image of topic at the moment the image has worked, it's getting downloads.
break some photography rules yourself and see what you can come up with for a good seller. have fun and enjoy being part of the photographer team, look forward to seeing your images.
Thanks for the tips. Actually we aren't here to 'see photography different'. We're supposedly here to supply high quality stock photography for discerning designers and publishers. Why would they want missing body parts? If 18 sales from 6,000 views over four years is your idea of success, I'd love to know what result you would call a failure.

I think you just have to let that negative attitude go nzgmw on the number of sales to views on an image with hands cut off and work towards your own succesful images.
I think rob tucker might have a thing or two he could actually teach us with all his history in photojournalism. Check out his web-site. Photojournalism is about it's content that tells the story or event and can be seen within about 3 sec what it's all about. Not an area in photography that all can do well and with conviction. I'm not saying all his images are photojournalism.
Just up-load your great images and give it a go.
Your right when you say we are not here to 'see photography different' but we have to remember the designers, pulishers and customers are, they want that image that connects with them, and mychillybin has diverse NZ photographers and NZ images that show NZ and subjects in all sorts of ways, would be a bit boring if we all did the same.
Don't get stuck on another photographers artistic view or mistake, make your own great images that will have those designers, pulishers and customers coming back to your portfolio.

Yes I agree 18 downloads from 6000 dont sound good, especially when you look at istock numbers.
But I believe its all about numbers at the end of the day. NZ is a small place with only 4 million people, lets face it theres only gonna be 10's of downoads across the country a day, and thats from the designers that actually know about the site.
Compare this to America 50 - 80?? something milion, how many would say istock alone get a day, hundreds to thousands??

Chillys would be interesting to know how many overseas downloads you get a week?? and what % of total downloads a week that is??

Dont forget we are your bill payers just like the taxpayers, what overseas marketing do you do??
