I'm honored to have had my above Hipstamatic photo be selected by Flickr to show up on their Explore pages!

Flickr selects 500 photos per day -- or about 0.005% of their daily upload volume -- based on what they call interestingness. Things such as where the photo visits are coming from; who comments on the photo and when; who marks it as a favorite; its tags and many more things go into the interestingness algorithm. Flickr has actually filed a patent for the interestingness algorithm!
