Somewhat excited about 500px, a photo sharing site a bit like flickr but without the dross. I’m finding that flickr is full of the mediocre whereas 500px seems to have a freshness about it with really inspiring photographers uploading premium work. At less than a dollar a week I think I might make the switch to 500px for professional work and keep flickr for the family & holiday snaps.

    Hey Hugh, Just found your blog. Love your work. I agree with you that 500px has a freshness to it and i thinkt hat many people are getting fed up with the serious lack of innovation of flickr ever since yahoo bought it over. It will be interesting to see how 500px develops or what other young pretenders may challenge flickr. This is a good article on flickr
