Well we got a winter and spring banner so now we're going to get a summer banner too. So anyone who wants to, please post your summer photos! Remember, the photos will be cropped thin for the banner so keep that in mind when choosing which photos to post.

Guidelines:
-----------------------------------------------------
Please post only 6 (max) per person.
The photos have to be at least 130 pixels tall and 800-999 pixels wide.
The submitting will finish (so I can put the photos in the banner image and start the voting) on February 7, at 8:00 PM (Central Time)
-----------------------------------------------------

Note: The larger the images are that you post, the easier it is for me to work with them, so if you have images that are NOT wider than 999 pixels, it's best (easiest for me) for you to just post them exactly the way they are and not resize them at all. If you have images that are larger, it's best to resize them to exactly 999 (the largest DG will accept)

Also note: The photos must be yours or someone's whose permission you have to post here.

Ok, post away!

I enjoy doing it. :D And no, I figured we could just jumble the photos together and vote separately. However, now that you mention it I think I'll raise the max submissions to 6 since we're doing two banners.
