The Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat, is indeed a miracle of a place and I think I don't need to say much about it as others have done that already.
But one thing: Due to its flatness, the bright white surface, the heat and the cristal clear view, optical mirages are likely to occur. And with a little bit of creativity you can create incredible illusions yourself in that unique environment - such as this.

Nicely done Christian!

This is an example of imaginative composition, a variation on photos taken by hundreds of tourists — daily — who line up to prop up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The note is most appropriate as well. I hope you don't regard it as meddling, but I will offer a WS.

Christian: perfect play on perspective since you can only do this in an empty space. Maybe best suited for TrekLens, but it does tell us something about this barren area. regards, c

At a first glance it looks just a funny joke. But you have a good point there. It really needs a flat and textureless landscape to work. Agree with Bulent about the horizon.

A bit previsible and redundant, and touristic...I am not sure we really need this :|

Yeap, it's funny and good photo idea. Far from point and shoot. Taking pictures its also about having fun and capture moments, and this one gives you lots of good memories for sure...
Thanks for sharing.
