Are you on 500px?

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 17, 2014, 1:13 AM

I just created a 500px account and I must say I'm impressed by its simplicity and clean design. I also like its popularity system. 
After more than 10 years in deviantart, I'm starting to be tired of its lack of development/evolution. The website looks 10 years old, the stats system is antique, previews keep changing colors for no reason, photography seems lost in the middle of manga drawings and other type or arts and last but not least: I think the "Groups" system killed everything I use to like in DA. I have the feeling that to get some visibility and not to get lost in the flood of pictures I need to add a given pictures to dozens of groups. I don't have the patience to do it and I simply don't think it's right. What I like in 500px is that there is no, or almost no subterfuge to gain visibility. In DA, I tried to select carefully the groups I would submit my pictures to but I noticed that popular groups (monofacture to mention one..), that are supposed to accept only "high quality" pictures, denied my pictures when I submitted them but they then sent a request to add them when the same pics got selected for DD....

Anyway, I won't stop posting on DA but it feels also good to start from zero on a new platform:

Give me your own URL if you also have an account there :)
