"Picture of the week" submission thread
 
You may have noticed that the home page now features a 'picture of the week'. I/we will endeavour to update this every Sunday, the chosen picture will run for the week. I'll be culling shots from the site when I see them, but thought I'd start this thread as a way to get new shots on a regular basis that are easy to find.

Selection will be totally arbitrary, whatever appeals most at the moment so don't get all out of shape if your picture isn't 'chosen'. Will try to spread the love around somewhat.

Pictures should be sharp, please use Photobucket or some such rather than the thumbnail feature so they all are judged on the same basis. PB does a nice job of pre-sizing the images for the forum.

Have at it! Remember we're looking for pictures that would be appropriate for a sailing magazine cover shot, that sort of thing.

Newt... if you're using Photobucket or similar, copy and paste the IMG code link option and simply paste it into the body of your text.

Can you try that route? Also we're finding that not all photo hosting site links work the same, or at all. We know Photobucket works so prefer you use that site.

The original form of this week's picture crashed the link for the front page.

OK.

Photobucket didn't work for me. I have placed a few pics on shutterfly

Hope one (or more) work for you.

Barry
