    500px.com

    Cool site. Kind of like FB for photographers? Like Flikr without the drama. It's free, so it's worth checking out. Some of the content is NSFW so UAYOR....

    Here's mine.

    I've seen a few folks mention it but it wasn't until this that I stopped to check it out. Looks cool and you've got yourself another follower on there now. I need to upload my first photos tonight

    I pulled it, at least in the short term. Got a little spooked by the # of eastern block folks on that site as it relates to image theft. I am in the process of rethinking if it's worth it.

    Still a cool site, and I still check it out....

    When theft is an issue, don't you just post lower resolution images?

    Basically, the answer I came up with in my head.


    Anyone else have a page there??

    It's always amusing to me to see what mags faces actually look like after months, even years of seeing their photos or TRs. I have this pre-concocted image in my head and it never, EVER looks even close to what they actually look like.

    Interesting read on 500px about how the ratings work. Good for new photogs to get noticed, but hard to "stay on top", so to speak.

    Quote Originally Posted by 500px.com

Most likely, you won’t see it in the Popular altogether. Our system downrates all photo ratings each day, so that world’s greatest photo will have an approximate rating of 50 points after half a year. Just fifty! That’s just 3 votes for the new photo! Second level of sensitivity comes from the freshness — first vote on a fresh photo brings 27 points. If you wait, the same first vote will bring about 25 points on the second day. The same vote on not so fresh photo provides for less ‘love’. Why is that?

    We thought hard and tweaked the system numerous times to achieve that balance. That helps quickly bring new exciting photos to the top, provide photographers with maximum exposure, and help them sustain it though the time, by uploading 2-3 of their best photos per day.

    That’s why the site, which is 500 times smaller than Flickr can bring same exposure to both amateur and professional photographers alike.

    My stuff isn't exactly up to snuff with a lot of your work, but I started an account a couple of days ago. Haven't uploaded too much yet, but there's more on the way...

    I've added everyone on here (and voted for lots of your pics). Anybody else?

    I'll admit I was hesitant at first, but starting to get good response to my images over there. I think really, I'm just figuring out what that crowd likes (and only posting that stuff). lol...

    I just started following everybody here. I'm new to 500px so I only have a couple pics up now. I found when I started I posted everything I shot. Now I am being more selective.

    joined today after going through about a year of pictures.

    have been looking at great photographs for several hours now, not a bad way to spent a day with heavy rain.
    love the stuff by you mags, really great pictures around!
