Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art for Books about South-East Asia

The more I work with ‘photo-apped’ photos, the more I find that they seem to ‘tell a story’ better than photos served up straight and unapped.

Maybe that’s because I used to design book covers, and when I look at an apped photos I think, “Oh, that would be perfect for a book on such ‘n such.”

Here are some ‘apped’ photos that I think would work on book covers about South-East Asia, specifically Myanmar and Vietnam.
