A Submarine Photoshopping Contest

Eric over at The Sub Report blog has put together a contest for people who have mad skillz with Photoshop -- inspired by the shot of the Russian Typhoon near the beach that went around the sub-blogosphere a while ago, he's looking for people to submit their best "shot" of a submarine near the shore. Here's what's been submitted so far; if I had the skillz, I'd try to put something together that looked like the Asheville's crest -- I always thought it looked like their motto should be "We run aground"; here's what I mean:

Don't get me wrong -- I have the highest respect for the Asheville and her crew. It's just a really lame logo...

Update 0026 27 July: For proof that my Photoshopping skillz totally blow, take a gander at what I ended up submitting:

Update 0614 01 Aug: The results of the contest are posted!

You should have seen the Asheville emblem before EM2 Lemke fixed it during Precom.

And just for the record, USS Boise emblem is less lame than it was during Precom, but still doesn't strike fear in anybody's heart.

It looks to me like the submarine is smiling. Maybe they should add some doves in the background.

I don't think that Ashville's isn't as stupid as Seawolf's "drowning dog" patch:

Try the Annapolis logo of "Born free, hope to die free". Who in their right mind came up with that?

Ok, I never was good at saying no to an Engineer.

Although I like this one, and it's not even fake.

I agree with Bullnav. Your photoshop-work has far more visual impact than the patch logo, imo.
