|Wartime defence post at Loggos on Paxos island|
In January, obviously, Shutterstock took first place as is always the case. Reviews there seem to be fast at the moment with a high percentage of approvals which has enabled a worthwhile growth in my portfolio.

In second place were Dreamstime with 8 downloads -again prompt and favourable reviews for my uploads.
Third place went to 123rf with 10 downloads -sadly not a repeat of my BME in December.
Bigstock took fourth place with 7 downloads. Greek island related images seem to be selling well there recently.
A big surprise when Cutcaster turned up in fifth place with 2 downloads. These were my first sales there since 2014! I stopped uploading there a long time ago now. Even with these two sales my total downloads still only amount to 10 (with a port of 1.4k images). Still a long way to payout there.
|The historic Acropolis in Athens|
Finally in seventh place were Canstock with I download. My comments on Fotolia also apply to Canstock.
Not a stellar month overall but I am hoping my upload drive will start to pay off during 2017 as new material gets accepted. Recent uploads revolved around Greek images including a wartime defence post on Paxos, the Flying Cat catamaran on Alonissos and finally another image from the Acropolis in Athens. A lot has happened in Microstock in February (hence my late posting) so more of that next time. Regards, David.
