Wanna chase a miracle? It's possible, you just gotta open the door.— Super-HI, NEEKA, in: Following The Sun
Hello, I'm SHB2000, a nature-lover who's passionate about travel and nature photography. My home wiki is the English Wikivoyage where I am an administrator, but I consider Commons as my second home wiki. I mainly crop banners for Wikivoyage, move and categorize files, and enjoy voting in COM:FPC. Though not something I enjoy, I consider cleaning up copyright violations and dealing with freedom of panorama cases essential.
Sometimes, I may randomly check RC and random filters and tags on the hunt for vandals. It sometimes surprises me that vandalism on Commons can go undetected for weeks, if not months or years.
A list of my Wikivoyage page banners can be found at Category:Wikivoyage banners by SHB2000 although a selection of my favorites can be found below under #Favorite banners.
I am a filemover, patroller and a rollbacker on Commons in addition to being an administrator on the English Wikibooks.

Random travel trivia
This list is partially copied from voy:User:SHB2000#My records; if I've written "approx", I visited that place when I was ignorant of coordinates.
I had to do some specific measuring for the westernmost, because Vancouver, BC, is east of Point Reyes.
Here's just some of my favorite banners that I've cropped. This does not include banners I didn't crop. Banners here are categorized based on letter based on the page name on Wikivoyage in English. French Wikivoyage banners will be categorized based on the English translation. Additionally, the Icelandic letter Þ will be treated as a letter T.

See a full list of all my static maps (png or svg) on Category:Wikivoyage maps by SHB2000. Simple minor adjustments aren't included in that category.
This was my first attempt at making a static map. See it's usage on voy:en:Mungo National Park
A static map for voy:en:New South Wales. This was my first successful attempt at making a region static map.
A static map for voy:en:Canberra/Civic. My second attempt at making a static map (which wasn't necessary but I did it anyway).
A map for New England (the NSW one).
A map for the Mauricie region of Quebec. Not sure whether this is better than the dynamic map though.
A map of Greater Brisbane. Pleased to say that a derivative of this map was used on https://twinspectors.com.au/contact/
A map of Southern Tasmania. Adding Southwest National Park was an interesting experience.
Had a few hours to spare on a Sunday so I made a map for voy:Canberra/Hall
The dynamic map on voy:Heard Island and McDonald Islands sucked, so spent an hour and a half making this new map. This eventually also found its way onto a fi.wiktionary entry.
For Gold Creek Village on voy:Canberra/Gungahlin
For the desolate voy:en:Pulu Keeling National Park. Just made this to practice my mapmaking skills.
Possibly the most detailed map I've ever made, created to supersede the rather abysmal static map that was used on voy:en:Leeds (promoted to QI).
Not sure how this one looks, but it has a list of future regions if the voy:Hunter were to be regionalized.
A nicer map for New England (the NSW one)
One for voy:Tasmania. I've been desiring to create this for months; this also turned out nicely (promoted to QI).
After two days of tracing, could the map for SE Queensland be the best I've made so far? (promoted to QI)
A map of the GTA; it's a shame that the cities like Mississauga couldn't be labeled, though
Map of Peninsular Malaysia's East Coast. There were too many roads to draw so I only drew the expressways and the road into Kelantan
Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia didn't need a static map, but because the dynamic map had few distinctive features, I created this. I think the quality of this matches by map for South East Queensland (promoted to QI).
A quick cheap static map I made for Normandy
