[Czech Republic] Banners Propositions

I think that we should think about our country banner again. Please use this thread to submit propositions.

I went to Chodov the other day and took a couple of pics and tried to create a banner. I think that Prague is the first obvious choice for a banner but on the other hand its historic landmarks have been presented many tims on this forum. And did anyone say that Prague doesn´t have a modern skyline?

Diferent versions:







I would be happy if I had a better camera but this is the best I can get out of my crappy compact Kodak...


Anyways, feel free to discuss and if you can, propose your own banners. Other cities are welcome.

You did some nice work jazapp but sorry, that skyline is ugly. Moreover it was bit flattened. I wouldn't choose any of these three, the view is interesting though.

Ještě by to něco chtělo, možná bych někdy zkusil noční pohled. Ale celkově si myslím že Pankrác zatím není nic k ukazování.

I have a skyview from the church in the Prague Castle taking in a few directions. Intrested?

Reasonable question. When Czechs say they don't like Prague they rather mean the people and the big-city-lifestyle; than the city.

In Canada everyone hates Toronto. But its everything.
People, the money its getting, the crimes it committing, the arrogance its producing, the immigrants, the pollution, the traffic, the slums and so forth...

They just look down on you when you tell them your from Toronto.
Went so bad that they made a documentary about it....

You are more than welcome to propose a Liberec banner then.

2 kokpit - I don´t thik that Pankrác is amazing yet it is a very definite cluster of CBD buildings. And personaly I think that even though Prague is known as a "city without skyscrapers" this skyline is better than of any CE/EE city except Warsaw and Moscow

^ I think we have better thinks to show than mixture of few commies and highrises. In a world context, Pankrác is really nothing special...

What about posting the Placin (or whatever the name is) and then mixing it with the Prague castle? Any Photoshop wizards?
