Well done, Jan! That took some serious Photoshop skills!

Now, of course, with the mountain gone, the skyscrapers look enormous.

EDIT: I think a direct comparison is warranted:

How did I make such a stupid mistake?? As one of the commentators noted, Custer is indeed in South Dakota. I was thinking "South Dakota" and wrote "Wyoming".

Moreover, in my little endeavor to get small but interesting towns scattered among the big-city banners, I just included a bad picture. I was going for a typical U.S. Western town. Plus I was thinking about the Crazy Horse Memorial and Mt. Rushmore, both of which are very cool. But General George Custer, for whom this gateway town is named was pretty much of a jerk.

I should never have submitted this picture. Mea culpa. Sorry about that, Jan. I'll be glad when today is over and we're on to Georgetown.

Nice one!

While realizing that it's none of my business, I actually liked a very slightly re-sized variant of the second one better:

One hint,

about "Port de Sóllar", do you mean about this place?

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Pu...43!4d2.6974736

Correct name is "Port de Sóller" (or just Sóller). It seems it was just a misspelling

Thanks. I cropped it down because I didn't want the skyline to look too distant when reduced to banner size. I considered splitting it into two separate banners (city centre is on the left and Cardiff Bay on the right) but you have to see it as one to appreciate the size of the city.
