I don't have the stats to back this up, but I suspect iStock has done better than Shutterstock for my landscapes.  Shutterstock tends to earn small to moderate amounts across a wide swath of my portfolio, where iStock either sells a lot of a photo or little to nothing.  Also, Shutterstock seems to do better for me with people shots, although that's in part because they allow me to submit so many more.

I take some landscape photos, a lot of horse pictures and tons of DOGS!  I have seen the most sales from Fotolia (especially for dogs and horses), but they only accept about 25% of my submitted images. FT seems to prefer West Coast images of the United States.   I've also had success with Dreamstime, Shutterstock and Istock (definitely have more rejected than accepted at Istock - but the dogs and horses accepted DO sell).  

Bigstock for me has been a DISSMAL failure with animal shots and landscapes (I've had plenty accepted -just no sales).  For small companies I've sold a handful at 123rf, only a very small portfolio there though (less than 50).

Overall, my acceptance ratios are about 50%.  I've been active since Aug. 2008 and I've made roughly $200.  My biggest portfolio is on DT with 169 images, my smallest is at Istock which is less than 25.



Hope this helps.

I find SS good, particularly if you have a landmark in landscapes.

SS is probably best for anything for most of people but I am not sure if this is sign of good correlation :-)
