You don't see your views. With a portfolio like this, you will get sales in very limited numbers. Just looking at this picture: https://stock.adobe.com/ca/images/thai-woman-at-temple/552155759?prev_url=detail. The lady is static, does not interact with the public. The image leans left (that should have been a refusal). You do not have the hands of the lady in the picture. I wouldn't buy this picture even that you are nicely placed in search ranking for this one and a search term like “Thai woman

Hello,

Sorry to say, but after seeing your portfolio, this is your answer as to why you're not getting any downloads. To be honest, they are not really commercially viable. Just random pictures.

I took a quick look at your portfolio. As @Abambo indicated your images of flowers and greenery are in very competitive categories, and are unlikely to ever be seen by a potential buyer. Your titles aren't helpful either. For instance, one tropical looking flower has the title "red perennial". You need to be much more descriptive.

Flower pictures sell rarely. In general, you need many more pictures than you have in your portfolio to have some sales.

Look here for indications that you would need to contribute to boost your sales: https://stock.adobe.com/pages/artisthub/

Instead of titling it "water buffalo", you could write "multiple water buffalo walking across a muddy rice paddy in Cambodia".
