New group banner photo - Submit your image

Hey group, I think we should get a new group banner photo. So how about in the comments of this post you submit one of your images and based on the up votes we can decide what one gets picked.

*** As you can see if you're browsing on a computer, the banner is stretched quite wide and not very tall. Not all images are going to look good here. The dimensions of the image are 1100 x 450 pixels. Keep this in mind when submitting here. Bonus points if you submit your image already cropped to that size so it's easy to tell if it's a good fit. Thanks!

*** Also if you submit a photo, I want to see you vote on some others here too! If you're one of the first people to comment then check back in later.

Mike- love everything about this shot! Reminds me of my youth!

Great Idea Ryan! Looking forward to other contributions.

Meanwhile, here is my submission:

I can send a re-sized version to match the cover size, if this gets picked.

Good Luck to All!

Oh my. I remember this from a few weeks ago. A truly awesome image, Shyamaa

I want to congratulate you, Shyamaa, on a truly magnificent and memorable shot. Wish I was there with you when you took the shot!

Nothing fancy technique wise, the weather was the true champion here. I did do a few tonal adjustments in photoshop and some luminosity mask enhancements and that's about it. Single shot with a 35mm lens

Allan, to have the pleasure of capturing this wonderful shot, the many contrasts of light, the many forms of water, inspiring! Thanks for sharing with the group!

Allan Pudlitzke's picture

Thanks Jim. It's surely just a case of being at the right place at the right time :)

What about some Aurora? :)

Congrats Shyama, looks like you have the most votes! How about in a month or so we'll switch it to the runner up here.

Hey Ryan,

Thank you!

I welcome your idea. Changing the poster monthly would encourage more engagement and also allow old and new talents to showcase their latest work.

It's a win win situation.

Here's a shot from beautiful Waiheke Island (off the coast of Auckland in NZ). It's from the southern end of the island at Orapiu - stunning views and so peaceful.

Water in photography has always been a fascination to me and here the suns reflections on the ocean waves, the fog bank, and Cypress trees at Carmel Beach California made me thankful again for Mother Natures awesome beauty.

Clearing morning storm on the southern Andes range, looking across Lago Viedma, outside El Chalten, Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina. Once the clouds dispersed the morning sunlight came flooding through to illuminate the peaks.

This is a photo of Emily the capital of St Thomas V.I. Took this shot in 2008 and I am sure after Hurricane Maria it does not look like this. Such a beautiful island.

Just wondering how some Icelandic waves would go down?
