    Rather than focus on a type of subject, let's try looking at what can be done with format. I'm sure I'm not alone in recognising that the format of a photo has a major impact on how the viewer perceives and understands the subject matter therein. I'm looking for PANORAMA format pictures where, for want of a definition of panorama, there is at least a 2:1 aspect ratio. These can be vertical or horizontal in format with no limitations on subject other than that they must rely on the format for some of their impact. Vague I know but let's see what we can do. landscapes (as below) are the obvious place to start but please be more imaginative than me!

    Rules:
    • Be creative and have fun.
    • You may only submit one photo per contest.
    • Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
    • The contest runs for exactly one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread.)
    • At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.
    • The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    One day.... one day I will go there. I went to Hawaii for a 4 day weekend from the UK in 2011 so I have no excuse not to really.

    The landscape is breathtaking and the way you have captured the balloons is awesome to give the sheer scale of the place. Nicely done.

    Just to let you know that I may be a bit late closing the contest - travelling to US. I trust any later entries to stick to the time limit and I'll get on to judging as soon as I can. Like what I've seen so far!

    I used Lightroom. I'd imagine Photoshop would've been another option.
