Hey, I'm a guy who sadly bought a Leica at some point in life. Sadly, since ever since I've been hooked. Love the little camera and carry it with me everywhere. Christoph

500px new design - first thought

Published February 23rd, 2012

First off.. I like the new design 500px has chosen.

-- Talking about "FLOW" --

-- General thoughts --

I like 500px approach of trying new ways and applaud to the 500px-team for this.

Keep new updates coming.. I appreciate it.

And now it's up to you.. what do you guys think of the new updates?

For me it would be a great addition if we could edit the preview altogether before publishing the photgraph.

Is the same thing happening to you to or is it just me?

Take care, Chris

I've just received a flickr mail which made me shiver. The topic is "Ron wants you to see a photo.this Shot has more then 13,000 hits" On the other hand 500px greets me with this photograph:

The photo that was send to me in the flickr mail is this:

This photo makes me think. Has flickr reached a new low?

It seems photos in flickr mainly get views by the following factors:

1) How many comments you leave on other peoples photos.

2) How many groups you put your photos into.

3) Generally every form of spam.

The first point seems confirmed when looking at the comments under the photo out of the mail. Comments like:

"Spectacular shot"

"YOU'VE got TALENT!" and

"Your photo is excellent!"
