Subtle messages achieved with chart background image

If you read my posting on advanced Excel chart formatting, then you may appreciate this thought on how background images can be used to amplify your message.  Consider the chart shown below with the ranking of Kauai brokerages in 2006 based on sales data from our multiple list service.  The bar chart is constructed so that only the number 1 company has it's head above water while the rest are submerged.  It's what the data shows and the background picture amplifies the message.  It's subtle but effective.

 

Mahalo!

Aloha Richard, something does not seem to be working.  The chart is not opening.

Scratch that, it opened the second time I tried it.  The background really makes it look professional.

Love your web site and how did that sale go for the guy who wanted to buy the banana farm?

Unfortunately we ran into a financing problem on the banana farm as the fellow had no credit history.  Thanks for your fun comment, we must always make time for that!

Thanks for your comments but I must say this was not one of my better posts.  Your graciousness is appreciated.
