Here is why we have joined 500px

The most popular way to view great photographs is sitting with your tablet. It gives you the best of a photo mag and in full colour. The most popular way to buy photographs is a canvas wrap print. It can instantly be hung on the wall without framing and with the right image the canvas print renders a subtle oil painting effect.

With apologies for being openly commercial to our blog readers our most popular image looks great on a wrap. Already 288 people count it as a favourite on flikr and it has been viewed almost 3,000 times. So as well as our own site photographicview where you can buy fine art quality prints we have opted to also go with putting some of our most popular on our 500px site. The main reason is it offers a simple way for customers to buy our pictures as a canvas.
