i don't know, it seems that ebay has a huge audience of people always looking, be they collectors, other photographers or someone looking for "IT" ...
(ebay) it is a great place to get exposure i suppose, the fees aren't THAT much, and the more exposure a photographer ( or any artist ) gets the better. a friend who owns an art gallery here in rhode island once told me ( maybe 20 years ago ) people slowly become known and slowly sell their work. ebay, cafés, prestige-galleries, online galleries that promise instant success, local co-ops, selling cards at bookstores, marketing to interior designers &C doesn't make people a success overnight. this thread has just reinforced my friend told me --- it takes a lot of time and effort to be successful.

this has been a great thread!
