    Nice work Bolt... I like them all.

    I think any photo included can't include a politician as they will come and go... except Putin of course who keeps coming back Twisted Evil

    As such a nice new high quality photo... I would recommend something from Vitalys' site as they are copyright free... though it would be just common courtesy to ask for permission to use them on a banner if they are selected.

    ... should I say I recommend using photos from Vitalys site not just because they are free but because he has a fantastic level of skill with a camera and his photographs are excellent quality.

    Not bad, if you could photoshop Shtora to really glow that would be awesome.

    I kind a would love to see a moscovite rider on the new banner always liked the armor.



    My own atempts end up being kind of bad, but first time to use gimp, trying to learn it untill Armata is unveiled.

    IMHO I think Bolt's option is the best posted. All so far have been great (excluding my own of course) but the T-90's look amazing. 

    Armenian that last one is sweet.  Wink

    I agree my personal favorites are:







    ...Tough decision, but I'm leaning towards the bayonet one. I think after enough submissions, this thread should be closed, and a new separate thread should be opened with the top 10 submissions, and a poll for choosing the next banner for this forum.

    I'm shocked no one ever tried to incorporate a growling Grizzly/Polar Bear?

    Sorry to sound judgemental especially when I have not submitted anything but those first attempts were way below par TheArmenian...

    ....but then you go and post post number 34 and along with post 33 in my opinion they are the top three so far... well done... Smile

    Bolt,

    I like these 2 the most.

    I prefer this type of mono-theme over a multitude of small pictures.

    It does not have to be a real picture, it could be an info-graphic sort of a thing or even a drawing.

    My favorite so far is the top one.

    Just curious to know why the new banner has to be 742 x 236 will it not be much appealing if entire page width is filled?

    It screws up the viewing width on mobile if going wider.

    Background has to complement, now that Aurora Borealis just blends then poor objects together.
    Not bad anyway.
    I will do one myself, when I have some free time that is
