Over 51,000 pictures in the Readers Flickr Pool

We have a new milestone in the Readers's Flickr Pool, over 51,000 pictures submitted. Thanks to everyone for participating and sharing your pictures! The Readers Flickr Pool is a place where photographers of all experience levels and all camera types can share their pictures. Everyone is welcome to join and submit up to five pictures per day. This is not an 18+ group, so please do not submit adult-themed pictures.

As usual, we feature the milestone picture, picture #51000, "feel in slow motion" by Joespix taken with a Nikon D3*.

Recent additions to the flickr pool are featured on the front page (and index pages) of this blog. We do not store the pictures on this blog or elsewhere - they are displayed using standard flickr widgets provided by flickr (the flickr badge), and maintained by flickr. You can add or remove your pictures at any time by adding them or removing them from the flickr pool and you can also join/leave the Flickr Pool at any time and for any reason.

Flickr has recently added more Pool Viewing options, so you can check out the pictures in the flickr pool in many different ways, including one picture per row (the Large option) - the most photography-priority view imho.

One thing to note that may not be obvious if you are not intimately familiar with how the Flickr Pools work: A Flickr Pool is a dynamically updated entity, since people can add/remove pictures from Flickr or from the Flickr Pool at any time and for any reason. People can also join/leave Flickr or the Flickr Pool at any time. Therefore, there is no permanent position in the Flickr Pool. What we do is we pick the picture that occupies the milestone position in the Square Thumbnails View when we write the milestone blog-post using the Classic Square View. If you check before or after, you may (or may not) see a different picture at that position.
