I was super proud two weeks ago when my shot through the cave at Cathedral Cove was selected for the Explored page on Flickr for the day. I felt slightly hypocritical. I’ve complained that the Explored section is useless and impossible to get into for a few years. I used to love the ‘Recently Posted’ stream much more. But still … it was a thrill.
I think the selection of this shot sort of confirms my suspicions about ‘Explored’ though:
- It’s a certain ‘style’ of shot that gets featured – note the milky water.
- It does nothing for your total viewcounts unless it happens at least more than once.
