    Default Front Page Member Images

    We are going to trial displaying random images of members photos on the home page. There have been some great images posted on this site that are never seen again. Hopefully if there is enough interest some of your best images will get another viewing.
    1. Submit up to two links to images you have posted on this site that you consider represents your best photographic work. Whether you have one or two images displaying will depend on interest.
    2. Post your links to this topic. Not the images
    3. The image cannot be an IOTW winner.
    4. The images can be from any of the bird image forums except the "New to Bird Photography” forum.
    6. The image needs to be in a horizontal format to work in the space provided.
    5. Images can be submitted for one week from when this topic is posted.
    6. Depending on the uptake, you will have the opportunity once per month to submit an image or replace an existing image.
    This is your chance to promote this site through your images.

    But could I submit a re-processed one? Should I attach it here, or on the original topic?

    And that one, the repost! Sounds like a Great Idea!

    Good idea Gerard; will be interesting in itself to see what others consider as their best photograph.

    EDIT: deleted image and added link to second page of original thread where I have posted the reprocessed image.

    Here's two that I have reprocessed for here. Both are favourites of mine. Look forward to seeing some other people's photos from the past.

    Do the links need to be the forum thread that they were posted in or can we provide links to the images from other sources, like our own sites for example?

    That's correct, the images need to be uploaded to Feathers and Photos and can be from any of the bird image forums except the "New to Bird Photography” forum.

    Would having a front page thing that Randomally selects images from the forum (attachments or something) be possible?

    I think you'll find the vertical images will cause problems in this scenario, and it would be very difficult to try and code something that excluded vertical images from the forum.


    ps: here are mine for the first batch

    Sorry Nathan, but it's simply not practical for a number of reasons. Furthermore as Gerard's mentioned in the OP, vertical format images simply wont work well with the site formatting.

    I guess these two will be my submissions. Will be kinda fun to hopefully see an image of mine on the front page. It's fun seeing the new additions to it
