Many thanks, as always, to everyone that has rated, commented or used my photos - I love getting those 'SXC message from a member' e-mails, and I'm always struck by just how many lovely people there are on this site. So thanks guys!

I shall keep using your feedback and encouragement to continue trying new things and being the best photographer that I can.

Well done... it's exciting isn't it?! I'm nearly at the 30,000 mark myself and it's such a nice feeling knowing that by doing something you love you're giving other people pleasure too.

Your gallery is great so I am sure 40,000 won't be too far away.

Thanks Jenny! Your gallery feels like it has come up on the rails from nowhere, but I know from your blog that you've added a lot of photos just in the last few weeks.

Good work. 30,000 is a good round number and a milestone.

But the downloads seem to speed up rather than slow down.

It seemed like just the other day (December) I had posted a blog about reaching 50,000 downloads. But now (Beginning feb) I have a handful short from 70,000. I guess the more photos you have up, the more you have to offer downloaders...

Also, what helped me tremendously is going back to some old uploads and streamlining / adding keywords. You start to get a sense for how people search - so 'tweaking' those older keywords definitely makes a huge impact. A photo I had with less than 50 downloads (in 7 months) reched an additional 150 downloads in less than ten days. Keywords rule.

Anyways, well done. May you reach you 50,000 even faster.

Good idea Dominic! There are some earlier photos that I should really go and revisit in the way you suggest :)

Hey !!! I'm using the pic #617683 in a public work. It's just a tv with advertisings (digital signage) and I'm using that in a travel's ad.

Thank you very much for sharing your pics. World needs people like you and. Thank You!

Hi. I just wanted to give you a little more info on a photo I took. You commented about the Haunted Hotel photo of mine, check out this site for a little tidbit on the history of the hotel.
