Show off the west coast.... Bring on the banners..

It's time that we show off our cities on SSC.... Let's post here our best banners to submit for SSC.


I hope everybody participates... If you have a photo that you want as a banner... Post it here.

This one is from the San Diego convention center...

I really like the convention center shot sdtj! The first two skyline ones are to squashed though. But I like the fifth one to, just wish there was more room to show the top of the skyline though...

These are GREAT, sdtj! San Diego looks wonderful. To be frank, I'm no great fan of pink and purple skies. The last one is striking and unusual.

Also, it's a good idea to show off our part of the world at the top of the page now and then ... the West Coast is not well represented at the top of the page. Good of you to get the ball rolling!

San Francisco has so many good angles, I can't pick the best one.... What do you think of these?

Though my New York City roots feel betrayed, I think if a San Francisco banner is used, the caption should ready simply, "The City."

i like the ones with the bay bridge because it shows a lot of city (the last one ROCKS).. most golden gate bridge pics dont as much (altough the first one isnt bad, I like the last one more). Other ones i thought might be good for cropping


EDIT: a crop of above image

Aw, sdtj!

You mean you're because no one responded to your banner proposals?

True, some sort of reaction from *someone* would have been in order, but, as you've no doubt found out by now (considering you registered in 2003), the West Coast forumers are sort of a finicky bunch--and they are by no means the only ones.

Let me take a stab:

I think the first Seattle pano is the best by far.

And I LIKE the LV one! Too bad Las Vegas has such a bum rap, not only in the States but also in Europe and perhaps elsewhere, but that shouldn't keep it from being shown!

I'm glad you followed the invitation to create some West Coast banners. If you don't feel like posting them in the official Banner forum in the "About the Forums" section, you can PM them to Jan directly (he's the one who selects them).

So I say thanks, and go for it!

LOL... I checked the size of the other banners and no, mine doesn't have the right size... I'll try to fix it.

Very sweet banners SDTJ. I thought I saw a Tijuana banner up a couple of days ago?? I really like all of the San Diego shots especially the convention center and the third and fourth ones down. Great angles, lighting, and massing!

Good to see you repping San Diego very well my friend. Thanks for all the work you did to make these.
