I don't know what happened to this picture because it's really dark and blotchy. There looks to be excess noise reduction or some type of median blur or something because it looks really soft and undetailed. I don't really know why because your ISO was only 100. Care to post a link in the comments to the original, unedited photography? The composition isn't really appealing to me either. I think zooming out a little but and putting the cloud on the left third of the photo would have been better. I don't know, keep taking pictures though.

The original image was very noisy and I could not the life of me figure out why. I had to reduce some of the noise in neatimage and found the result satisfying. The softness was a look I was going for ('puff') and the blochiness is actually not an artifact but from the sky itself.
As for the composition, I thought about moving the cloud to left even more but then I realized that this would conflict with icons and whatnot on the desktops of the users. If this was just a normal photo I would have done as you said (in fact I have do have a version on my computer with your preferred composition).

As always, thank you for the useful comment. I always enjoy the opinions of other eyes and especially ones as thoughtful as yours.

I should also add that I upped the contrast because it was originally a very grey image with very little contrast. This was probably the cause of the original noise.
I will post an original version on my flickr page if you're interested.

Thanks for the quick reply. I played with the image a little bit and I do like the way you handled it. I don't think Neat Image did a very good job because I tried it and Noiseware and Noise Ninja did it pretty well by cleaning up the blue a lot and leaving the cloud go but then again, I was working with the 1024 picture on flickr.

I guess I was more commenting on the composition as a picture, not a wallpaper. That is a good idea to keep it centered to avoid icons.
