This is also very cool!Those dark clouds are frightening! And I like the contrast between the green field and the sky! Nice shot :)

Voted for this in the Loupe, glad to see it made it! I really like the rich colors and the feeling of foreboding this image projects, very nicely done!

This is pretty good image... personally I would have moved into the field a little more. I am not a big fan of the second open area on the right side. I don't even remember seeing this in loupe. I have been voting on a number of high quality images and I am yet to see at least one to make. Makes me wonder. I have no problem uploading my images but I have no time to resize them according to various ratios etc.

I just went through the loupe again and there is barely anything in there worthy to be posted in terms of technical qualities. There is only a few images. I will see if I can upload something this weekend.

If this had a more symmetric composition and the viewpoint was slightly higher, it'd be great. :)

The asymmetry is not bad at all, especially if the this is to be used on a Mac. Icons on the right side of the screen will add overall balance. Windows users could flip the image horizontally.

Might I say that most of my comments are based on the quality of the image as a standalone photograph. That the image is to be used as wallpaper, to me is secondary. I wonder if others think so as well.

Very interesting color scheme -- I don't mind the fact that it's asymmetric, it adds variety and interest.
Thanks for the upload :)

Very nice pic, love the dark moody sky.

@Igor, you only have to submit one or two resolutions and IFL will produce the rest. The resizing only takes a few seconds, so I hope to see some of your pics here soon! :)

@ Igor
Sounds like you're a real pro ! Maybe you could explain to us amateurs how the heck do can you determine image quality on The Loupe ??? Crappy little thumbnails and no control over the mouse over function.
I can't wait to see your stupendous entries !

@ Clyde I wasn't trying to be arrogant or saying that my images are absolutely the best... nothing along those lines but I do try to push myself and I am a perfectionist as well hence why I am never satisfied with much unless it's perfect in every way. Trust me I have seen perfect images in my lifetime. Also it is very easy to notice even from those small thumbnails what image is like and especially with that zoom to the original area in the center is a major bonus. If the center of the image is not sharp or it's noisy that tells a lot about the rest of the image. It's fairly simple. Cheers.

The fixed zoom function in The Loupe is useless.Most times it zooms in on sky or grass in the far distance.
If noise and sharpness are the only factors that determine whether a picture is good or not, you will have missed some classic photography.
Being a perfectionist is probably limiting any artistic merit you *may* have.

@ Clyde... I actually agree with what you just said... however that's not what I meant. I do understand where noise can be used in artistic ways and other creative effects but what I meant was poorly processed or over-processed images which are abundant these days. I am just stating facts. There are many technical qualities that define a successful image such as exposure, white balance, dynamic range, contrast, color definition and many more. I can see where the zoom function may be useless but most of the time I find it very useful.

All. This is one the best picture ever. Great. I really love it.

You cannot think about improvement, I would have taken 10 cm above. but... it's perfect anyway.
