I'm testing the icons in different environments and against different backgrounds. I then tweak the icons accordingly (usually small changes like the strength of strokes and highlights) and move them to another environment. It's a tedious process, but it makes sure they look good wherever you place them. Hopefully :P
PS. I'm very happy with the subtle highlight on the hole left by the map pin, if I may say so myself :)
