I really enjoy posting to 500px.com and seeing what feedback I get and any critique, which is always helpful, as I am still learning so much. Recently I noticed, when filling out the info on a photograph I was about to upload, that the green discoverability bar on the right hand side did not move along much until I put a full stop at the end of my title. Also, putting in where you take the photo is important, as are tags and the description of your image; not forgetting the category as well.
I have found lots of inspiration on 500px and I think I have learnt a lot as well. The image below rated very high and I was very pleased but don’t get me wrong, not all of my photos do well on there, very few in fact, but I enjoy perusing the site and seeing what attracts people the most. There is such a cross-section of images, you can get inspiration from it all; see what other people see and have a glimpse into some very talented artists, which is always leaving me in awe of their creative talent and gives me something to strive towards. All in all I think if 500px is not taken too seriously, it’s another one of those wonderful tools on the web you can use to gain knowledge and inspiration!
