It’s that time of year again! As we bid farewell to 2015 and welcome in 2016 with open arms, we’re taking a fond look back at the most popular images shared on 500px this past year.

There are only two rules:

1. The photos must have been uploaded to 500px (not necessarily taken) in 2015.

2. No photographer may appear more than once on any list, so everybody gets a chance to be featured.


Put the kids to bed folks, it’s time for the most unapologetic and not safe for work Top 10 of our Best of 2015 series: The Top 10 Nude Photos of 2015.

Each of the photos below, we feel, has artistic merit and isn’t simply a nude photo for the sake of nudity—for more on that subject, click here. And while we still didn’t have any male photos break into the 2015 Top 10, each year this category gets more and more professional, so we have high hopes for 2016!

In the meantime, enjoy the beautiful photographs below:
