And perhaps we should also think of a new banner here for something more representative of Vietnamese culture. Like maybe a shot from the Perfume Pagoda or something. The dog2 (talk) 22:04, 24 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Some possible images to crop here: File:Heavenly Kitchen Pagoda, northern Vietnam (16) (38486376872).jpg, File:Hội An, Ancient Town, 2020-01 CN-01.jpg, File:File:Hanoi-lac-hoan-kiem.jpg The dog2 (talk) 17:48, 25 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Banner 1
@The dog2: Apologies for a late response. I made a banner out of the second one. There's a small speck on the first one, so it might not work properly (but I'll see how that looks) --SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 03:23, 7 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@SHB2000: Looks good. What do you think of this new one vs the current one? The dog2 (talk) 17:15, 26 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I really can't decide tbh. The new one shows the cultural heritage better, while the current shows Vietnam's natural scenery. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 11:16, 27 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Banner 2
Anyway, here's one of the third image you linked. --SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 11:24, 27 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, it's a tough one. Cultural heritage wise, I think the picture of the bridge looks more striking. The dog2 (talk) 15:22, 27 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You left out the current banner, which is also a good one. With the caveat that I'd like all of these banners to be used somewhere, if possible, I like Banner 2 the best. On the other hand, a similar image of Ha Long Bay that's sharper and in nicer light would probably be better than any of these. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:26, 27 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── It's a tough one for sure. Ha Long Bay is beautiful, and I have been there myself. The question is if natural scenery or cultural heritage is a better representative of tourism in Vietnam. The dog2 (talk) 21:52, 27 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I don't think we have to make that choice. We can simply choose between different images and pick the best picture, which is what I think I did. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:23, 27 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I guess this could probably work if we want to make a banner using a higher resolution image of Ha Long Bay: [1]. The dog2 (talk) 15:01, 31 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
