Here is the current list of subjects that each banner picture is randomly taken from. Some subjects have more than one photo.
Calton Hill monument
Forth Road Bridge
Heart of Midlothian
Hillend Ski slope
Museum of Flight
North Berwick Law
If you have any suggestions for further subjects that represent Lothian or Edinburgh, please let get in touch. If you wish to take your own picture of somewhere new, or if you think you can do better with one of the existing subjects (I won’t be offended), feel free to send it in. It has to be of somewhere strictly within the boundaries of Edinburgh, East, Mid and West Lothian.
Note that the main subject of any photo should be capable of being shown in a ‘letter box’ aspect, i.e. wide and narrow, so tall subjects such as the Scott Monument are going to be difficult to represent here (although I have attempted that one). Put the main subject slightly off to the right so that the addition of the logo on the left does not obcure too much of it. So, use your phone camera sideways or ensure your ‘real’ camera is set to a wider aspect ratio such as 16:9 if possible as the standard aspect of 4:3 might not be wide enough (depends on the original pixel density). The final photo will be cropped to exactly 1100x188px, as long as I can manage that with my limited photo-manipulation skills and software.
