Title: Introducing Image of the Week
Post by: Oshyan on July 08, 2007, 01:50:46 AM
Today we are introducing a new feature on the Planetside website in which we will feature one particularly remarkable image each week in a prominent place throughout the site. This "Image of the Week" will show up underneath the main menu on most interior pages of our website, providing a good entry point into the galleries and a great publicity opportunity for the chosen artist.

Thanks to Adit Shukla for use of his outstanding "Sky Palace" image to inaugurate this cool new feature.

Image of the Week has been updated. This week we're featuring a great new image by Ryan Grobins which depicts a wonderfuly lit field at sunset and a spectacular sky. Congratulations to Ryan on being selected this week.

Updated again with an outstanding and unique image from Efflux. We seem to be on a bi-weekly schedule, but we'll get on track soon. ;D

We neglected to announce Image of the Week last week with the winner of the Terradreams contest - apologies to Oliver Kinzig for that oversight.

Now we're on to something featuring some terrific clouds by Njen (Ryan Grobins) http://www.planetside.co.uk/gallery/v/tg2gallery/Autumn_Sky.jpg.html

Things are busy at Planetside HQ - hard to believe it's been almost a month since the last once! A big gallery update is coming soon, but in the meantime Sjefen from the forums here has produced a great new image that caught our eye. Great use of lighting and water reflection!

Posted this one a couple days ago, but only now getting the chance to announce it. Most of you are probably familiar with Nvseal's stunning hurricane images posted recently, but now it will be seen by the wider community of visitors to our site. A well deserved honor.

A much-delayed congratulations to Ryan Archer who should have been featured weeks ago for his very fine forest image: http://www.planetside.co.uk/gallery/f/tg2/forest-glen-v3-1280-final.jpg.html

Back to a reasonably regular schedule now that I'm settled into my new apartment!

Nikita posted a very well built image that makes outstanding use of quite a number of objects., all very well mixed together into a cohesive and very compelling scene. Congrats Nikita!

Martchi makes a two-fold appearance with an Image of the Week (here (http://www.planetside.co.uk/gallery/f/tg2/Bad+day+2008.jpg.html)) as well as another gallery entry (here (http://www.planetside.co.uk/gallery/f/tg2/displacement.jpg.html)). Fantastic work on both. Old_blaggard's creative and wonderfully executed waterfall also joins the gallery this week: http://www.planetside.co.uk/gallery/f/tg2/Project_37-post.jpg.html

Congrats to both!

Congratulations!

There's no excuse, it might as well be "image of the moment" at this point. ;) But there *is* a great new image from Jeff Quick: http://www.planetside.co.uk/gallery/f/tg2/smugglers+beach.jpg.html Congrats!

It's been a great few weeks for images in the forums, so we'll be moving on soon...
