I decided to join 500px a few days ago. Another great place for photographers to showcase their best images. I'm amazed at the photographic talent on this website and in such a large variety of subject matter including animals, scenics, portraits, architecture and much, much more. They do claim to have the "World's Best Photos" and that isn't an overstatement in my opinion.

The beauty is in the ability to get instant feedback from fellow photographers. There is the usual "Like" and the "Follow" and some other cool features to 500px. With "Flow" you can quickly check for all the new content that your friends have liked, commented on and added to their favorites. Checking your own "Activity" reminds you of all the places you've been on the website from last to first. The "Pulse" gives you a rating based on the activity an individual photo generates. Since I'm just getting started here I'm sure I will learn much more about the unique features of 500px in the coming weeks.

I signed up for the free membership just to get started, but I'm not liking the restriction to only uploading 10 images per week. I think that will really limit the interaction I have at least for several weeks so the upgrade to the "Plus Membership" at less than $20 a year looks like a given. I hope you'll take a look at 500px and follow me at 500px.com/JamesLeash
