250k views on 500px

In the last few days I reached another milestone on one of my accounts – I finally reached 250.000 views on 500px portal! It took me much longer than I initially expected but it’s good to see it happening finally. I hope that reaching another milestone, i.e. 500.000 views, will take a little less time 🙂

250k views might seem like a relatively small number but still quite a few people recognize me and my photographs now (they mention they saw it on 500px), what’s really great!

I’m also close to a few other milestones (concerning different accounts and blog) and I hope to share the news soon 🙂

Daily photo – Winter in Dolina KoÅ›cieliska

Below High Dynamic Range image was taken last winter in Dolina Kościeliska (Koscieliska Valley) in Polish Tatra mountains. I captured 5 photos at 1 EV spacing to cover full dynamic range of this scene.

BTW If you want to learn how to capture such photos, make sure to read my free HDR tutorial, which will guide you through whole process of creating high dynamic range images – from taking them, to post-processing.
