I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Photoshop transparent background printed before. It’s visually striking because it’s something you’re not meant to see, like the cs toolbar or ingredients for a sausage roll. It’s also cool for me because I use Photoshop. 95% of the world doesn’t (is that right?), so maybe it doesn’t work.

Then there’s this non functioning 3D thing happening. 3D has arrived, and is now lurking around without much purpose. This is all style, and looks alright mainly because the figures are cut out, and they pop, if this photo had a background it would look more of a mess.

Finally: the stacked mountain collage. How many more mountain collages can be pulled off with a serious face?
