Hi Laurence,

I also don't sell much compared to others. So someone else can advise you better. But I don't see any answers yet.
When I look at your photos:

  • You have to upload a lot more photos. A number of photos look alike. (the same door twice, the same photos in color and without color). So actually there are even fewer different photos.
  • Too few keywords. Keywords are very important to be easy to find among all those other photos. I often look at keywords from similar photos.

Do you consciously skew the perspective on almost all of your architectural images?

Yes

Architects don't necessarily know much about photography.   In addition to be underexposed, that sky likely has lot of noise as well.

 

I also use polarizer a lot & have ruined way too many landscapes before I learned there are times when it is better to take it off.  Besides underexposing, it also makes sky uneven at some cases, depending on sun position (several of your photos have that).  Always take a look at image / histogram after you take a shot;  it will tell you if polarizer was good idea or not

Actually the pic is a really good representation of just how garish this building actually is. Ask those who know the building.. The yellow is intended to represent the local H&W Samson & Goliath cranes but is far more seriously in your face.

Mostly back to MF film these days. Rarely use digital now.
