Hi,

I was surfing google earth quite a lot this week. I always pin my holiday destinations with the yellow pin marker in google earth. I was wondering what it would look like if these pins where actually there in reality; giant landmarks saying ‘I was here!’. So I started experimenting with this photo of the Salar de Uyuni as result. I only chose a different colour than yellow to have a more interesting contrast with the B&W.
Image consists out of 12 layers (BG, frame, five pins and five pin shadows).

Thanks for having a look

Cheers

Joris

A wonderful result Joris and impressive PP work. The pink certainl stands out better than a yellow would have. A very good submission to the theme.
David

Another creative idea for this theme.

Hello Joris

What an excellent posting, very good idea thats well worked and presented.

TFS and for joining in the theme

kind regards Helen

Amazing PP work here Joris. This is gobsmacking! I love the concept, and I love the delivery. I think the yellow thumb-tack would have been more distinctively "Google Earth" but it's a minor point. Great work!
Rew

Some wonderful work here.
The pins look so huge here, with good colours, slight see thru effect, nicely placed and with great shadows.

Well done.
Tom
