The text rendering seems to have got confused in the central section of the image. It looks like tiles have been stitched together where different settings have been used e.g. the names of London, Dundee, Edinburgh, Liverpool chester etc. where only part of the name has the white halo.Also, in the central area some names overlap and become unreadable.Shame as it’s an otherwise great image.
