Are you guys ok with the choices I've made for these pictures? The icon picture needs to be something that's easy to recognize. I thought a mushroom was a nice choice but it could be something else. The banner could be a collage of images created by all of us, which would be very cool. For now I picked one of my favorite pictures.

What do you guys think?

Ok, I changed the icon to my tiny twins, what do you think? (anyone else have an opinion?)

I have decided that it makes sense to change the banner to reflect the current week's theme, and the icon will reflect the current project. I hope everyone likes the change! :)

Yay! :) I think it gives a very obvious visual for anyone visiting to let them know what the current topic is. :)

I'm glad you're enjoying the banner as much as I am! It's always fun when Sunday evening rolls around and I get to look through my images for just the right image! :)

I would just like to echo raingirl's comment --

Thanks for all the work you have been putting into the group, Janet. It has been a lot of fun to see the variety of images coming in. And, it has been a great impetus to keep my eyes open for the next color coming down the pike.

Juleann, that is wonderful to read!! There's is something so great about being excited about a photography project like this. You find yourself thinking about the project while doing other things, looking around for possibilities, rolling ideas around in your head for the future. And it's fantastic when a new idea that's perfect comes to mind! I love it! Glad you're having a good time! Me too! :)

If time permits, perhaps change it a couyple of times during the week. The picture which makes it to the banner can be seen as a kind of reward.

That's a wonderful idea! I have toyed with the idea of awarding favorite images, but in the end, I don't think it's something I'll end up doing because people are very very touchy about their pictures. Some people want nothing to do with a group which has any competition, even if it's just for a place on the banner. I really want this group to be as welcoming as possible, without making anyone feel like they must try to compete in any way. I only want people to focus on what they think would be their best contribution to the group that week.

I do love contests though. I wonder if people would like to have a discussion thread, where people could enter their picture to be voted for? That way people could have their picture in the group without dealing with being judged if they don't want, but those who want to could be involved? Hmm. Let me ask in another thread about this!
