Why not try to fit the paragraph copy inside the oceans where it would be more readable?

@Perceval McElhearn There are only 5 or 6 characters that are obscured, I don't think they're completely unreadable though. Most of the text is within the blue area.
I agree with @Perceval McElhearn, regardless of whether it's 5-6 characters or 50-60.
Also, I don't know what the green pointers are for, but say one is needed in South America, it will then interfere with the text that is over it.
I agree as well. It looks great, but I really think you're doing yourself as disservice by letting that text trod on South America.
Thought about animating the green circles with CSS3 animations? So they pulse? It'd look pretty sweet.
It's a bit cold for things to grow in the southern tip of South America, so he's probably safe.
I think a smidge more drop-shadow could pop it out a bit, but it's not unreadably awful as it stands. And when you pull back, the paragraph balances nicely in the space, being that wide.
@Stuart Regan I see your point, however all the pointers are in place and as far as I am aware no more will be added. I didn't think the text overlay on the map would be make a huge difference to the readability of the paragraph.
@Dave Houlbrooke Yeah, definitely. The little green circles will be pulsating.
Definitely agree with fitting the text in the ocean. Another advantage is that the lines of text won't be quite so wide and much easier to scan.
Maybe add some gradient/opacity mask to the bottom of the map, just to make it a little bit "darker"...
I really like the tones of the blue gradient! great shot...
Super nice work.
