New Header Photo Contest

We would like to update the header with a member provided photo. It needs to be 1250 pixels wide and 150 pixels tall. It's rather hard to find photos that can be cropped to these dimensions. Basically the object in focus (vessel) should be fairly far away so it takes up no more then 1/8 of the vertical space of a normal photo. We can then crop a "slice" out of the photo to make a panorama shot.

This photo shows an example of how we can crop a photo to make it fit in the header (click to enlarge):

Please post your submission to this thread for consideration. If you have a great photo but don't know how to crop it, just post the photo and we can crop it for you.

Since my Monk 36 suffered some damage via the tornado that ripped through our marina on March 2nd, I nominate our Monk, "Living Light," as the cover girl.

I like the idea of several trawlers in the header photo. This suggests we're a community, not just a single mariner.

I agree. Maybe this is too much 'community'.

I would guess that the system is flexible enough to change that header photo easily. Why not get a lot of submissions, even going back thru the thread that has pics of many members' boats, and set them up to randomly change the header? I'd guess a lot of us might be happy to see our boats appear up there from time to time.

I like Bshanafelt's, although I suspect they wouldn't survive the required cropping.

Not sure how well this would represent the predominant style of boat owned by the majority of users but thought it was a nice picture to share anyway. I do share the opinion that multiple boats be used, and am fond of it changing to include some member boats from time to time. Perhaps monthly or???
