Shorah fellow explorers and Obductees!

I have been working up my Obduction Egg-sibition in the form of some Tomahna travel posters and would like your help in selecting the finalists for submission to Cyan.

Since the Cyantists are getting antsy, I will only be able to leave the poll running until the end of the week, so please vote sooner rather than later. You can vote for your favorite three; and if you have any comments, suggestions, etc., please post to this thread (or PM me if you prefer).

Ready... set... Vote!!

Rather than vote, I'll just tell you what I like if that's okay.

I like the phrase, "Explore the Mysteries... of Tomahna" (for obvious reasons ;)), but I'm not fond of the picture with it. Too bright and stark (although if it's going to be a tiny poster, that might be a good thing).

I like the picture in the "Get Lost" poster, but not the phrase.

I also like the phrase, "Experience the Drama... of Tomahna."

Most importantly, I like seeing you (assuming that's you) in the picture and my favorite of those is the Lost poster.

I don't like the phrase "Gateway to D'ni" or the ones with Bahro because they're too blatant (less possibility of being real). I'd rather see a more subtle "inside joke" and that's accomplished just by using "Tomahna" and "D'ni Travel Bureau," IMO.

But, in the end, they're all wonderful and I would be thrilled to see any one of them make it into Obduction. :D

Of all the images I like "Hike" the best, by a long way. It is inviting, makes me want to get into the picture and see what is around that bend in the canyon. The phrase works well with the picture, but I'd remove the ellipsis, leaving "Hike the canyons of Tomahna" - the imperative draws you into the picture in the same way that the figure, just inside the frame, does.

I think it would be a little better if the picture was a *little* wider, so the figure was not quite so crowded by the left-hand edge of the frame, so to speak. But it works very well as it is, I think.

I also think you are right not to consider putting many of these together as a composite image. Given the restrictions, the single images are on the edge of understandability. Any smaller and they would lose all impact.
