Thread: Which version of city map looks better for my world map?

  1. #1

    Default Which version of city map looks better for my world map?

    I am trying to perfect the lighting and contrast, but I've been working for so long I can't tell which looks better.

    For context, I am trying to find something that fits well enough with my worldmap. The city maps don't use the same artwork at all, but I at least tried to achieve the same saturated coloring.

    Well, that's a bit tricky because I prefer the second one (on the right) but the first one seems to have colors more close to your world map.

    What bothers me is that some red buildings have a strong dark outline while some others don't have it.

    Now that you point it out, that bothers me too.

    Hopefully when I create my own maps, that problem won't be there (or I will know why that is the case.)

    I don't think it has to do with all of my adjustment layers and filter effects in photoshop though. The original is like that too.
    But since I will be using the same symbol set, it might happen to me too. Let's hope not!

    If you are still taking votes on this I vote the latter of the two. The colors are a little too pronounced in the first map.
    The second map kind of has a natural haze to it that blends the colors nicely.

    The second gets my vote as well.
