unfortunately not all can be used, due to extreme overkill.

note to banner makers: less close up and more good shots. all non-closeups mod has provided above are great examples. close-ups are  reaallly f*ing boring on banners.

On the one hand, I agree with you...  on the other hand, banner makers face the same dilemma that TV directors do: when you have a small screen, a closeup is much more effective than an intricate wide shot.  So, that's why so many of us get lured to the closeups.  

Our banners are about the physical size of an old cigarette card, though, and I've seen some of them depict the Grand Canyon and whatnot and they looked really nice, so I'm going to bear your advice in mind if I ever get around to doing my next batch of banners.

yes, and hitchcock shot a lot of great closeups.  its hard not to pick them when they're so striking.  

is there a such thing as too much hitchcock, though?  really?

I chose several closeups... the good ones.

I think Walrus' batch of banners kick ass.  I LOVE the Triplets of Belleville one.

I'll get better on that, too.

The suggestions really are helping though, so thank you to everyone who points out what I did wrong.  And if you feel like criticizing it for the sake of criticizing it, well... sure, go ahead and do that, too, I guess.

It's Anthony Hopkins from Titus.



Is anyone else have trouble seeing it? I think most new PC monitors are pretty close to Mac gamma.
