Two blues in a row, a new personal best, 4 favorites and 28 comments during the challenge - what else could I want? Thank you all for your votes and comments!

When the challenge came up , I immediately knew what and where I wanted to shoot (a hill about a mile from our home). Of course it's ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' bubeltrubel again behind the map. Actually, I didn't want to shoot at sunset and against the sun, but we're always late when we are going to shoot on location. What a luck (though the PP was a lot harder). After the shot I thought it would have been much better if she had had a suitcase standing next to her, but obviously it didn't matter...

A guy reading a map - I think this is one of those urban legends... (although from the legs I think it's a gal)

Congrats on having not one, but TWO on the front page, right next to each other, in the top spot, at the same time!! Very well deserved.

You are standing behind a map, of course. hehe. Cute idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2007 12:17:13 PM
A nice job using photoshop while keeping it subdued enough for most purists. I like the thought and background used, and work with the sun and light as I said is quite a bit but seems natural enough for pretty much all viewers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2007 04:12:33 AM
Almost a little too saturated, but it works well for this idea. Very well done. Gave it a high rating and made it a fave.
