What the Hell, 500px?

December 6, 2012  |  Elsewhere


Trying to figure out why this photo has such a high score on 500px.  It’s a pretty damn good photo, until you start looking at it and notice that the photographer has ruined it by Photoshopping a shark into it.

It’s shit like this, 500px, that makes it hard to take your community seriously.  You’re starting to go down the Flickr rabbit hole of blind praise without critical thinking, circle-jerking and, eventually, irrelevance.  How long before “Award” comments become a common sight?
