Cinematic silhouettes.

The country of origin for the film should be evident from various clues both location, names, and the alphabet.

Somehow the first ones resembles being given the finger, but thats my mind making those assumptions. The people and the powerlines is just great. The disconnection between the people and the connection represented by the power grid sums up the modern times.

Jaanco, the Saguaro against the city sprawl is a different take on the subject.
I hope this is a slightly different take on an overdone subject: Monument Valley, USA.

I can hear the dilligence coming Keith. Those silouettes are the wild, wild, west in my mind :)

Night sky with the planets Venus and Jupiter in conjunction as backdrop for the classic Saguaro shot.

Fons, like that multi-colored background. What is it?
Pluton, it is indeed a different take on Monument Valley. Not easy to find. (Monument Valley is so neat it is hard to get that tired of it, but it's always nice to come up with something unique.)
Bjorn, I really like the desert power one. The joshua tree or whatever encroaching on the side makes the photo without adding lots of clutter like having the ground included would.  Transmission towers and power lines make neat subjects.
