This is the place to submit and vote on photos for the week of 9 January to be featured on the main site. This contest should showcase your best quality work, demonstrating at least moderate skill with a camera and a general understanding of the artistic aspects of photography. Remember, the selected photo will be displayed on our main site header for a week. Submit something that you and the members of our site will want to look at and admire for seven days! This contest is for the community to choose what they LIKE (not what they dislike), with the most liked being displayed on the main site header for a week.

.: Voting Closes on Jan 8th at 11:59pm EDT (UTC-4) :.


This week, there is no particular theme for the contest. All photos which would be appropriate for the banner are welcome.


Submissions may be added any day of the week until voting closes. The winning image (with the highest votes) as of the close of voting will be exhibited on the main site.

  • The mod's seem to have disappeared to put up the last week's winner. I've created the next contest and we'll skip a week apparently. Matt's winning photo that should have gone up on the 26th will go up as soon as a mod can. Assuming that's before next monday, the 2nd, then the dates here stand...if not, we'll have to rearrange further. Either way, submit here for the next contest. – rfusca Dec 30 '11 at 2:03
  • Apologies for the delay. I was away in the mountains for longer than I expected, and I figured another mod would have taken care of this by now. – jrista Dec 30 '11 at 3:13
  • @jrista - yup, I knew you were away. Thanks for the update. – rfusca Dec 30 '11 at 4:48

Stormy Weather

This is a long exposure shot from Brighton Pier in Sussex, England taken on New Years Eve.. It was extremely windy and the sea was kicking up all over the place.

You can see the fullsize image on Flickr.

    Is your title a (Freudian) typo, or was it intended? – ysap Jan 1 '12 at 17:41

Winged Devil

Belgian F-16

I don't normally enter this but since my excuse that the image size is an odd one has disappeared I thought I should enter something.

This is the Belgian F-16 displaying at Duxford during the 2011 display season.

    Minus the smoke, that would make a good shot for a kitchen wall canvas. – ElendilTheTall Jan 3 '12 at 12:10

  • Your dimensions are off... The image should be 210px high and no more than 375px wide. – John Cavan Dec 30 '11 at 18:54
  • Well I could modify the image to have those dimensions but then i'll be compressing the image and reducing the quality – Mervin Dec 30 '11 at 18:55
  • 2
    Those dimensions are a part of the requirements of the contest, see the posting rules above. – John Cavan Dec 30 '11 at 20:16
  • Sorry about that,I'll post another pic with those specifications – Mervin Dec 30 '11 at 20:38
