Hi, fellow contributors! This file has been on for 9 months with 93 views and only 4 downloads. I have some much less interesting shots that have been viewed many more times with fewer downloads, so I'm thinking this may be a keyword issue. Can someone critique my kw's, please? Many thanks!

I'd say this photo is about growing up, achievement, the pleasure of new ownership and an anticipation of freedom.
You have far too many descriptions of age - certainly he can't be 16-17 AND 18-19 AND 20s. Cut this down to two or three keywords. That should increase the strength and relevance of other keywords.
Keywords that are largely irrelevant / not a major part of your photo: Authority (I'd prefer Ownership); Steering wheel (can hardly see it); Chrome; Vehicle Interior (we see the exterior)... You get the point. Concentrate on the key message of your photo, and forget any idea that someone searching for 'chrome' as a main subject would be looking for something like this.

Rite of passage? Ownership? Pride?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Particularly Whiteway. That was a big help. I tell myself not to put more than I need but it's hard to realize that sometimes less is more.
