    I enjoy posting images on sites like 500px and EyeEm where I can gauge in some ways how my photos are received by a broad spectrum of other people and photographers alike. What's interesting is that sometimes, photos that are well received on one site may not do as well on other sites and vice versa. What's unique to 500px is the algorithm that they developed to come up with a "Pulse" rating. The algorithm that they use supposedly evens the playing field somewhat for a new user compared to users who have thousands of followers.

    While the ultimate score or how many likes received isn't a concern, it does allow me gauge my own images within my own collection without my personal biases.

    So as a collective group on mu-43, let's share your top rated (highest pulse) photos from 500px. Also, if this thread catches on, and you have a new image that gets into your own Top 3, you can update your post and replace an image with the new one(s).

    "Juniper & The Garden Of Morning Calm" (Highest Pulse: 91.7)

    (How do I link directly to images from 500px? An easy way)
    EDIT: Found the way, thanks, THAT was well hidden on 500px, wow :)

    It's a system that's far from ideal for sure. I just thought this would be a neat idea for mu-43 members to showcase what their most popular photos are on 500px.

    Hi, look for this icon in 500px:
    View attachment 431724
    (edit 10/2015: they've changed it again; now it's a right arrow)

    And then copy the photo URL only and use the 'Image' button here, or the IMG bb tag.

    The full BB code for my last image looks like:
    Code:
    [ATTACH=full]431725[/ATTACH]
    [URL='https://500px.com/photo/114552465/']Amphibious Bicycle on 500px[/URL]

    I haven't got three images into Popular, but my first image has just made it.

    I'm re-editing this post because my top 3 pulse photos changed, and I don't like they all being flower shots, however that's just how it is.

    I think you might be right. I joined only a few days ago, and I've had a couple of images go "popular." Like you, I don't think those images were necessarily my best.

    Here they are, for what it's worth:

    FWIW I would pick different photos for two of these as my best (or favorite) three images.

    Since the second, 3rd and 4th would have been almost the same pic I decided to include my 1st, 2nd and 5th highest pics.

    I like 500px, I find it inspirational especially when thinking of creative post-processing, but I've not mastered the pulse thing just yet. Still, these are my three best performing images to date:
