CHALLENGE: Life After People

Dex's challenge idea comes from the History Channel's popular TV Show, Life After People. The idea is to pixel a famous location as it would look years after humans have left the earth. You need to make sure this area is a historic or known location.

You can pick any number of years or days from this list. Pixel how your chosen location would be affected by Mother Nature. Some ideas are: A shrub-infested Lincoln Memorial, the collapse of Stonehenge, or the San Fransisco bridge after being abandoned for years. Be creative!

Canvas size - Max 320 (width) x 240 (height).
Colors - Max 32 Colors.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

@ Oren: 5000 yrs? Nuttin' at all, not even windblown rust! It's got to be painted over every 10 yrs or so, otherwise it would rust away in no time...
Story is, good ol' Gustave never thought it would last long, it was built only for the 1889 int'l exhibition (it was used as a radio antenna shortly afterwards and that saved it). He chose to use an excellent but highly rustable quality of iron...
Funny thing is: it's been so much painted over that it won't be able to bear add'l layers of paint much longer, so it'll have to be scraped first... but older paints contain lead: you can't do that in the open!!!
It will have to be safely encased first, and no one is sure how to do that... so it might well crumble away even if we don't go, haha!

I wanted to ask if I may make for example something like alternative forms of life? :)
@Manupix
Who told that you must make something that could really happen? ;)

@Edit
Can I pixel this - http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/06/Yokohama_MinatoMirai21.jpg - district Yokohama in Japan, that's kinda famous I guess ;) Btw. what we take as a famous place - when word doesn't underline it's name or when it's in wikipedia/google or something else? ;)

that bold line "aa" is just ugly and doesnt cause any effect instead of making it more ugly than it would be with bold lines....*syntax error.

The AA on the right side could improve a little. Right now it looks a little choppy. Just needs a darker shade for it. 2009 + 5000 = 7009. Lol sorry I had to point that out.
 
anyway, I don't even know if CC is ok in a challenge thread.

If I can think of something to do I would do it, but its hard to come up with unique ideas.

i just think theres a lot of room for imrpovement,.... the contrast is way too low, the composition isnt rly balanced, and it lacks of depth, i would remove the font, because it doesnt support the atmospere at all... its the end of human life!! make up some a dramatic scenery... since u already got the desert theme why dont add the sun, casting long shadows for example, like in those western movies, ...maybe u could also add more of those tentacles to add depth and a certain uncannieness... and after 5000 years the construction would have taken more damage aswell i guess...

heres an edit

Skewing the piece of the bridge like you have done is not pixelart and not allowed. Pixel by hand, no shortcuts, be patient.

Elk, from what I can see on your piece, it shows the end of the world. But aint the challenge supposed to be about what happens after the world has ended?
Pretty amazing anyway.
