    What's with the ? marks? The Ruins label could be pointing more directly at the ruins... took me a moment to find it. The border is good, nice style, it matches all of the extra elements even if not the land itself (everything is very blue compared to the bright green land, but not saying I don't like it).

    Good work on this lostatsea!

    Chashio Thanks for the suggestion. I'll move the marker. I redid the mini version and didn't get it lined back up.The question marks are there to (unclearly) convey that the Vague shadow in the lagoon, Could it be the reputed Sea Dragon of legends ? Or just some debris on the bottom. The Question mark for the Crystal Structure is there to ( Unclearly) convey That though it does exist it is a Total enigma ! Got a few days still Maybe I'll remove the ? If the elements clash too much with the land Any Suggestions ? The land is the primary focus so the others elements are sort of drab by comparison. I am All about learning so suggestion are welcome!

    Either border Both look good. The ?s are fine too... just wasn't sure if they meant you were thinking of changing your mind about the labels or something.

    Oh, Man, I don't know,,, I kinda like the original one better than the new one. Just Kidding!! Great big improvement, new map is wonderful. AND I love the space filler with the compass in it! It looks great, and if you look close you can see the new map as a tiny group of islands in the background!!! Fantastic!

    Thanks Bogie The space filler version was a earlier version ( Feb 2011 see first post) That I went on to detail in April 2011 . Then of course I traded techniques when I entered the July 2012 contest " use a cloud " . I have pretty much become obsessed with "perfecting" that style . I am still working /experimenting on it.

    I like both versions, although the contrast on the second map, particularly the shadows, seems a bit heavy. I dig the borders though.
