Suggested new alternative banner

The dish is the icon of Parkes. And IMO way better than the current one.

When there's only a default banner in an article, please just add the banner you've got. Unless it's so bad that it's worse than nothing (an exceedingly rare occurrence not worth thinking about), everyone will be pleased. Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:39, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
I was kinda worried about the size. It looks a bit big to me but if anyone else is fine with it then I'll add it. SHB2000 (talk) 10:44, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
That's not the way things work here. Photos need to be appropriately resized to be usable as pagebanners. Read WV:Banner expedition, especially the parts starting with "Image size". Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:51, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
So no, if you don't have a banner version of this, don't add it. Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:51, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
I'll try and go to Parkes and get a nicer version of this if the flooding stops. It's fairly hard to get the dish as a whole though due to its sheer size. SHB2000 (talk) 11:02, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Found a better version on Flickr. SHB2000 (talk) 11:14, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Here it is in 7:1 ratio: Ground Zero (talk) 12:28, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks, Ground Zero! The banner is ready to add. I hope the flooding wasn't too severe. How are you making out, SHB2000? Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:42, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Man my nearby Parra wharf went underwater. You can also see some other photos here as well. SHB2000 (talk) 22:01, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Wow. That's pretty dramatic. Thanks for the link. Stay safe. Ground Zero (talk) 22:39, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
That looks really bad! Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:26, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Just came back after going to the Parra river myself. I also hope that User:DaGizza is safe as well. The pics up on commons soon. SHB2000 (talk) 02:54, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
@Ground Zero, Ikan Kekek: added some images on commons SHB2000 (talk) 03:22, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
