The below are the factors which I thought contributed to a Success that our photo get picked by Explore..

1. Number of views
2. Number of Favorites
3. Number of comments

Well, guess what, it is not. I have seen some which have less than 100 views for months - years yet they were on Explore top 500. And trust me, they aren't the one if you see it in your own eyes, we would believe special. What then? . . mere computation algorithms? I think pretty much it. Yep. Happy photo shooting.. you never know - The most Candid shots were the ones that may get selected in Top 500 Explore.

However, to top the month on Explore for Top 5, Yep there needs to be calculated photo-shooting experience and professionalism. But the above mentioned factors never account for it to be selected.

Explore is mysterious to me, and yet I find it interesting to have such mechanism invented by the Engineers of Flickr. Kudo for them.!
