Good afternoon.
I want to offer the banner city in which I was born.
Saint-Petersburg, Russia)
On the banner we see our new stadium for the football team "Zenith" and cable-stayed bridge over the river Neva, also recently built.
All this is enveloped in a mysterious fog.

Original photo from the instagram and two options for the banner of your choice.

Author Tatyana Zaitseva
Permission to publish received

With a bridge
On the background, behind the bridge, under construction stand tall the future highest skyscraper in Russia (and in Europe too), the Lakhta Center.



Without a bridge



I will be very glad to see the banner in the ranking of the best

@DiogoBaptista: your source looks like a professional photographer which could mean a possible copyright issue. We prefer images taken by members, open source ones or ones for which we have permission to use.

@shard97: that one looks a but blurry on my end. You have another version of that one?

What about this one? It's not blurry, it's fog. Picture is little bit photoshopped though. I am waiting for permission for this one...

.... actually, it is blurry...

Picture looks good when not resized:





Maybe little bit brighter:




...problem with photoshopped pictures is they do not seem realistic, they are more like pictures taken from some computer game instead from real place...
