Any specific reason? I'm interested as the site does seem to change.

The competitive nature of the site and the constant asking for likes weren't for me.

It's also far more convenient to upload to Flickr from Aperture.

There is a bit of a popularity contest thing about it which I don't subscribe to. I was hoping that groups might be good for a little more active discussion, but it falls well short of this site.

I like how 500px presents your images. The ads on Flickr can be a distraction sometimes. It's also interesting to follow other photographers who have similar interests as yourself.

There is also a 500px plugin for LR that works really well.

I think the quality of images on average is better on 500px, and for me I find that more people see them, albeit for the first 24 hours.

I'm still waiting for the 500px plugin for Digikam though

The original link I provided shows all images that have "pentax" as a keyword. It's sorted by date. Here's the link again: Search / 500px


I think the free account on 500px provides a lot of value.

I have a Flickr Pro account. No ads. There is a third party plugin for Aperture. Maybe I'll try it.

I haven't been bugged by anybody to "vote" for them (like I've read) yet, so not too bad. I think it's cool to find people that post up the same stuff that you do. It gives me ideas, which is always a good thing. Not much in the form of conversation, or critique, mainly just a place for me to post images. It's kind of fun to post up your stuff, and then have people give a simple thumbs up. Way better than Flckr, where I have a lot of images posted, but the only people who have ever commented on anything are a couple of our members here. I bought the cheap membership for $25, and am having fun with it, so we'll just have to see where it goes.
