This is the place to submit and vote on photos for the week of 7 May 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 May 6th 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.

  • I like this, but the color balance looks a little too cool (blue) to me. – coneslayer May 1 '12 at 1:53
  • Ya, I'm still learning. It's the sky reflecting off his white fur. I was more excited about taking the picture through the fence. – Birdie May 1 '12 at 3:39

    Just to be clear, I wasn't suggesting that the color balance was a fatal flaw, but rather suggesting a small tweak that could strengthen your submission. If you need any help adjusting the color balance in whatever software you use, there's a great Q&A site next door! :-) – coneslayer May 1 '12 at 11:04
