This is the place to submit and vote on photos for the week of 16 April 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 Apr 16th 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.

  • interesting photo it kinda messes with my brain, the larger version more so. Did you just zoom in, or was it done in post? – fluf Apr 10 '12 at 6:13

    lol, actually both, I was trying out long-exposure-zoom but the effect was not something I was very happy about, so I had to enhance it in post. – fahad.hasan Apr 10 '12 at 7:48

I suppose I might as well make a submission. Black sands of Punakaiki Beach. I recently traveled to NZ, and this is one of my favorite pictures of the trip.

    I'm posting this mostly because my niece is ZOMG CUTE! in it, not because it's a particularly good photo... – Martha Apr 9 '12 at 21:21
  • Without wanting to start any arguments, @Martha, I will state for the record that this is a particularly good photo. Backgrounds are easy to change (if you want to morph this from "snapshot" to something other), but there are legions of professional children's portraitists who struggle in vain every day to elicit that sort of expression in their work. – user2719 Apr 16 '12 at 2:24
