It has always been a goal of mine, one day to reach the front page of 500px. This site is so filled with talent, it often makes me think my work is bad and should stop doing business (Ok not so much, but you get the idea).
I did some steel whool self-portrait of my girlfriend and I in the water two days ago. I posted it on 500px about 20h ago and went to sleep, hoping to score a good one... and it worked! Woke up to it with a score of 97, in the first ten pages.
A couple of hours later I am now the 4th pictures all the way on top with a score of 99,7. I know I don't win anything or make money out of it, but it's still personnal satisfaction to be up there with all the (mostly) amazing and wonderful pictures.
Here's the picture in question and the 500px link if you ever want to give me some love too:

Did you had any similar story or am I the only one who had the front page as one of his goal?
