Well, I tried. Anything wider than 1024 get's re-sized when it's uploaded.

oooooh...very nice, Tonic!!

Not that I don't like sailboats, but I like the shots with just Trawlers since it's a Trawler Forum.

There are a lot of wonderful pictures out there... the challenge will be finding the ones that will survive the important 'crop' to the correct size!

Andy. OK, on it's way.

Rochepoint. It was taken September, last year, at Princess Louisa Inlet. I don't know the name of the boat (other than it's a Selene)..

I thought it looked familiar. This is why I live and boat in the PNW, it is beautiful. Can't wait for Andy to upload it. Thanks!

I had other photos of it and was able to make out the name (sort of) from the side board. Anyway, I eventually worked out that it's "Wild Blue", a 53' Selene. There's a blog of their exit through Malibu. Seems they didn't time it quite right!

So, when do I get the keys to my new boat...the one in the photo? I assume that was the purpose of the contest, right?

I also would like too see a rotation of photos to show the type of boats the majority of us have and can afford, speaking for myself of course.

I love Richards photo(great shot). I also like the idea of rotating in users boats, but the users need to take distant, crop-able photos of their boats that can be used.

For example: Steve's boat in post #35 I feel is beautiful and would represent well however, it needs to be a more distant shot so Andy & Company could crop it to fit in the banner.

Using Tonic's photo, you can see how small and far away an object (or objects) need to be to fit when cropping such a wide and slice of the photo.

In the following photo from forklift, it's a beautiful boat, but I think it would work better if the boat was futher away so it didn't take up the whole vertical space of the image.

One thing that I love about the current header photo from Tonic is the artistic beauty of the image when it comes to background and the reflection on the water. Really this could be any boat from a high end one that is there to a more affordable vessel. It's the scenery and feeling you get looking at the image that give it's that special touch.

We can update the header every so often, maybe monthly? On another site we update them based on season and sometimes for holidays. As time passes we will build an archive of great shots and can switch to weekly. Once we have a big enough archive we could switch to daily as well.

Would anyone with digital photo editing skills (and software) like to step up to be the point person to help solicit, crop and manage the header photo entry submissions?

Here is one that almost fits, and my guess is that someone could make it fit.

Nice photo. Too bad about that pronounced list to port.
