Ed Rooney Posted June 16, 2013 Share Posted June 16, 2013 A few year's ago I visited a friend in Rome, a city where I once lived, a city I love. My friend's flat is just outside the Piazza San Pietro, so I did a bunch of shots of St. Peter's Basilica at all times of day, dawn, dusk, day and night; there it was and I kept passing it. My images are good, not great and not particularly creative or different. They come under the old definition of what a successful stock image was—a cliche done perfectly. So here's my question: why have I never had a sale or even a view on any of my St. Peter's Basilica images? I've sold other stuff, some of them cliches, from that Rome trip, but not one of St. Peter's. I'm thinking it could be a religious thing, that perhaps travel picture buyers would prefer to stay away from the possible controversies of religion. What do you think?
