500 of 1,83 Million
On 26th of June 2015 the picture “Waalbrug Nijmegen” went on Flickr into the “Explore” section. Flickr is a photo sharing page where photographers around the world share their photos, rate and comment other pictures.
In the Explore Section of Flickr are the daily best 500 pictures shown. That may sound a lot, but keep in mind that each day on flickr 1,83 million pictures get uploaded, or ~53 million per month (numbers 2014, source) so only the best of the best gets into that Explore section.
