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.
Underwater photography is an art that’s been attempted by many, but mastered only by a select few. Fortunately for us, they all seem to be on 500px!
And so, for our next installment of the Best of 2015 series, we’re breaking out SCUBA gear and underwater housings: get ready for the Top 10 Underwater photos of 2015 on 500px.
