    Yep, New York is EST which is of course totally unrelated to the location of the person that will be doing the closing....

    Actually that does bring up an important point. As the US does daylight saving differently to most of the rest of the world, EST is currently GMT -4 rather than GMT -5 as normal.

    *lol*... well, as long as the time is fixed to NY, I guess we just have to adjust our watches accordingly ... and then we can try to get the US to follow the rest of the world afterwards... *lol*

    Good luck with that.

    Half my electronics come from home (UK) so it took a lot of care to figure out what time it was yesterday morning...

    So, you're not a native to NY?
    I've changed countries too, from Denmark to Sweden - so not that big of a change - and my company is still in Denmark so I go there often.

    Moutarde did a lovely illustration of a myth, complete with source materials and what appeared to be a nice fantasy research context. Lovely picture of a scroll that might be described as a map, technically well executed and integrated with the context. But it just didn't seem well suited to the purpose of being a map.

    Greason Wolfe went to the other extreme, opting for what appeared to be a fully geologically accurate illustration. It was very photographic and well executed, but it seemed to me to be lacking "mapness".

    tilt did what best matched my mental model of a "map" of those presented for the challenge. It showed the important features of a place for the purpose of describing a myth. Was it technically the best executed from a technical standpoint? Probably not by the current standards of most of the guild folks. Did it look like a photograph? Certainly not. It had a few of the external flourishes that would mark it as a picture of a map (some of the shading on the map appeared to be trying to invoke a parchment-type background and it was clear from the symbol style that it was intended to look like a picture of a woodcut from an old book), but those flourishes were all very subordinate to the map.
