It pretty much is. There are some pictures that make it that you wonder why ... but as others have said in this thread, it's by some kind of random equation. It's sure exciting when you do make it though :lol:

Yeah it's all a bit weird, sometimes you look through the explored section on flickr and there are camera phone shots of buses etc in the top 10 next to stunning landscapes and the like

Man, how the heck do you get explored? It seems so totally random?

Cory, sometimes it's just random, but I know for me it comes in waves. Usually ever couple of months I'll get a bunch that get explored. In the grand scheme of things it really means nothing except getting some exposure. Of course it helps to take decent photos, but obviously if you ever look in explore it's not always true. If they only really picked 500 of the best posted daily on flickr I would never make it on there :lol:

For me it has come in waves, too. In just under 2 months, every 2-3 weeks I would get one - I had 5 in that time. It has now been exactly a month since my last one. So who knows :p

Very nice shots Craig and very “explore" worthy. I think you have to be playing the Flickr game a lot more than I do. I will usually only add my shots to a couple groups and put a few tags on them if i think about it. I mainly use flickr as a way to upload here. POTN is where i waste all my time. In the meantime this is a nice little thread to check on occasion.

Very true. If you're not involved in Flickr, then chances are much less. If I'm not mistaken adding into too much groups can hinder your chances. I'm honestly getting tired of flickr anyways. I'm hoping in the next couple of months I can start my blog. My vision of photography is morphing and outside of landscape and street, I'll be working on my vision as more documentary style of shooting.
