I must begin this by saying how overawed and humbled I feel by the level of photography displayed by so many brilliant photographers in 500px! It's easy to get lost in the breathtaking photographs here. I wish I can be this good someday!

Which brings me to the point of this post. All of us here, put up our pictures in the hope that they will be viewed and appreciated by the community here. So, if you are new and haven't established a presence here as yet , what do you do? Our photographs get buried in the avalanche of new photographs being posted every second. So, you just get a blink and you miss it opportunity of being seen in the fresh category. How do you grab eyeballs? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

By the way, does the upgraded 'awesome' site help in any way in this regard?

Thanks for a very prompt answer. Appreciate it. Its easy to get lost in 500 px, in more ways than one! I reckon, your advice is the only thing that I can actually do.

You get what you give. General interaction is the key. I think even if you have a spot on awesome image... there is a good chance it can get lost in the feeds based on the sheer volume of posted images. Having a strong following of folks raises the chance you will get votes for your image and allow it to bubble up.

I worried about the same thing when I opened my account. Now I just focus on my photos and posting images I love to look at... I now get more votes and views than ever before.

Keep posting what you love!
