Yesterday I thought +500px was totally broken .. or something had gone interestingly sideways in their calculations .. or they were being gamed… as you can see from the below… these were the top most popular images….page 1

The single image below was the most popular… Nothing wrong with any of those photos..per say… but they are not what I expect to see on the front page of 500px when i go there and cry to myself that the work there is so much more epic than mine….

I thought I would make a play for the front page with this image to see what happened… http://500px.com/photo/21563031

Gladly I can report that the site is all fixed and I am back where I need to be… on page 20 or popular – vs. on the front page 🙁 – But I am also glad the issue is fixed… and actually quite impressed with myself for once getting up to 95.5 for the first time ever…

500px can be a interesting and finicky mistress when it comes to voting… and yes "its not all about the votes.. I use it for inspiration…" – Just like I read playboy for the articles…

Sometimes a good ego boost is what we all need to keep us interested in what we do… never be ashamed of people liking what you do…
