Seems like that's the popular spot to stand for the shot!

and no doubt someone will do another and complain their exciting new content is being deliberately hidden.

Looking at DT though of course there are lots like this their search results look far far superior to me.....I wonder if this explains that for me at least they are starting to show some flicker of life. Seems to me SS are using some image recognition tool that interprets the term "similar" way too literally to give interesting results.

I like the one where the Eiffel Tower stands in the middle.

Actually, it reminded me the work of a french artist. She overlayed multiple shots of famous places taken from the same angle, the result is ...impressionistic :

By the same logic, a paintbrush is an artist.

Of course it's not. It's a tool of the artist.

And so are the computer and the script written by the artist.

That's some realistic Photoshop work right there.  ;D

It's a great work and great artistic thinking. And it's really legit too.

Thank you for sharing

She's not the only one. Many times it is happened in art history. And now in a world with 7 billion of person it will happen more often...

About "Art".
I think that it is always easy to criticize or to say that "it is simple" or "anybody can do it", etc. once it has been done 1 time by somebody else.

How very.....original.

Actually, by the way, Ive noticed an unusual thing when Ive been photographing in touristy spots (sometimes in overseas locations.) Sometimes when I'm setting up and framing a shot, another person will see this and quickly run over to where I am, stand right next to me and take a photograph of the same subject that I'm shooting (from the same angle) and then move away just as quickly.

One time in Rome, I was photographing a street scene side by side with someone from a group tour. We were both looking for interesting angles. All of a sudden, I had the idea to tilt my camera up skyward and photograph the upper levels of some nice old buildings above me. Immediately afterwards, the guy next to me does exactly the same thing with his camera. Copycats are everywhere.

Maybe you have better camera and equipment and they think "wow this guy must know, what he's doing".

I use a lot my nikon d300, now d500 and my 200-400-f4 VR lens. And when people see this setup, they automatically think I'm some top notch pro photographer and start asking me questions, and tell me what camera they own, what settings should they use, etc etc.... It annoys me.
