As with many photographers, I've been playing around with 500px in recent weeks and have liked what I've seen so far (check out my profile here) . The sheer quality of the photos over there are so amazing that it's been really easy to lose hours just browsing photos.

Then I came across the Firefox extension, Stylish, which allows you to restyle websites in your browser. Basically, this amounts to writing some CSS that overrides what the website is coded with.

I've always been a fan of darker-themed websites because I find them less straining on the eyes, so after installing a few styles and tinkering a bit, I thought about what other websites would be good to restyle. I figured 500px would be a good candidate, since it is mostly white. I didn't find an existing style, so I went ahead and experimented with Stylish myself to see what I could come up with.

Here are a few screenshots…

If you're interested in using this, you'll need to install Stylish first. Then you can download/install 'Dark 500px' directly from userstyles.org. Feedback welcome and appreciated.. Enjoy!
