We’ve had a lot of fun counting down the Top 10 photos in every category (and then some) over the past couple of weeks. It’s certainly been fun for me to jump right in and see some of the best 500px has to offer, and we hope you’ve enjoyed it too.

From the Top 10 People Photos, to the Top 10 Cat Photos, to the Top 10 Landscape Photos, the past several week have given us some truly spectacular shots to gawk at.

But now, as the end of 2014 draws ever nearer — or, in the case of Australia, has already come and gone — it’s time for our final Top 10 list of the year: The Top 10 500px ISO Posts of 2014.

Scroll down to count the Top 10 down with us, and click on the screenshot to go to each post and read it in full.
