I can see why that is one of your favourites. It's a great shot. Well done.

Great shot.. and I can see why it having sold 4 times would make it a favourite!

I don't see any pontoons in the images. Are those little structures called pontoons?

I'd call a floating structure a pontoon. That's more of a pier. 

But it's not a bad tag to include. Of course that may be what the resort calls them.

Tidying up LR catalogue, I came across loads of unprocessed shots from a trip to Sicily in 2016, no idea why I didn't deal with them at the time. I quite like these two

Thanks Bryan!  Yeah, I came out of it OK - was just a little cold and wet with sea spray.  More good news today, it made the front page of 2 local rags!

 

Love your 2 Sicily shots, especially the top one.

That's a good shot, Andy. In NewYork, there's a long tradition of Irish firefighters.

Thank you so much Paulette and Spacecadet!

 

In France, a pier or jetty of this kind could be referred as a "ponton", which I erroneously translated into "pontoon".

After a quick search on the web, I now know what a "pontoon" looks like, which obviously does not correspond to my pictures :o.

Thanks to you two, I was able to modify my keywords accordingly this morning ;).

I just seen your portfolio. I think you just need to be a bit more patient and wait for more unique moments, including better lighting. I've taken your pub image below, by itself it's not so interesting but if you wait long enough I'm sure you'll get a character walking by - ideally someone local and eccentric! This will make the image 5x more commercial. Since this is an editorial anyway, including some people usually adds value to shots. On a little side note, the flag is cut off :)

I hope you don't mine that I make a suggestion. I think you can take more care with your framing. Sometimes it seems that there is too much empty space in the foreground and sometimes it is the opposite with something being cut off a bit at the bottom. I'm sure it is just a matter of paying more attention to your edges. It takes time to get sales and also takes time to refine what you are doing.
