Very cool, your next project could be to find a spot, and take pictures of various weather from exactly the same spot and then putting them together!

Love the colors!

Wow. This is so professional and conceptually brilliant. I think any advertising agency would scoop up this image in an instant. The fact that it is commercially desirable in no way detracts from its artistic merit. "Please sir, I want some more." (Oliver Twist).

more space given to the pictures themselves and less space given to the black backing but apart from that small easy to fix problem I have with it this is really a very professional quality picture.

Needs a tiny bit of contrast between the reflections at the actual picture as your eye is chasing the picture all over the screen. Still good work though. =)

Thank you very much for all your nice comments!
I made three new versions of the wallpaper for those of you, who thought it might need a black background instead and one special version! ;-)

Black version of "The Spectrum of the Sky":

I'll start by saying awesome concept and design, but I personally would love to see it with a slight dissolve on the "window" frames to blend a little with the background. The sharp edges with a natural theme sort of threw me off. Great either way though, nice stuff

Posted By: Centurion

Does anybody realize the dullness of the background? I think the pictures in the center are incredible but the plain background detracts me from it. IMO I would rather have a desktop picture that is 100% beautiful. I'm not saying there's an easy way out because if the background was too detailed then the center would lose meaning. I feel there is a cheapness to the picture because of the contrast between well crafted shots put on a plain background.

Although I like this very much, there are two things that I feel don't work. In the third picture from the right, the mountain seems much too large and prominent - in comparison with the others - and this tends to make this strip dominate instead of working with the others. The other thing is that, for me, the difference in detail between the red/orange/yellow skies on the left, and the blue/purple skies to the right, also spoils the balance as those on the right are much more fine and realistic. It's a good idea, though and has given me some ideas of my own!

"more space given to the pictures themselves and less space given to the black backing"

I disagree,.. since this is supposed to be a desktop wallpaper,..
This background is perfect, and leaves room for placing icons or schortcuts.

best background ever imo

This is an incredible picture! I'll stick with it for a while. Just a minor gripe, though, on the third panel from the right, at the top, the edges seem to loose their crispness. This might just be compression, but it bugs me a bit. Otherwise, fantastic job!

Why not make each individual picture larger to fit the size of the screen, thus removing the large portion of plain background from the top and sides?

I wish there was a little less reflection, it takes attention away from the actual pictures of the sky. I have a widescreen (laptop), and I thought this wallpaper would be awesome, but after putting it on, I notice that the reflection is taking quite a bit of the focus away from the actual images. I wish you'd put one up with a little less reflection and more of the sky. :)

Read through the comments you made in this pic alone, you are constantly bragging about being #1 or #2 in this or that. When other people bring those things up, that's fine. When you monitor your own stats and then tell the world how great they are, that's blowing your own trumpet.

I registered just to comment on this one. I'm not a photographer or graphic artist of any measure, though.

For some reason this one struck me - as a sci-fi geek, it feels like a combination of the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey and the changing windows from a Star Trek: TNG episode ("Contagion" - dealing with the Iconians).

In any case, this is going on my desktop shortly - after the Canucks win the Cup. (Got the ol' Stick and Rink on there until then).

This site is nothing less than amazing - I've collected several dozen pics for future desktops. Thanks, Dominic, and everyone else whose contributions I've downloaded.
