These rockets released a spectacular barrage of smaller charges which writhed in every direction. Their erratic motion belies the stability of the camera throughout this shot.

Nikon D80 with Nikkor 24-85mm lens. ƒ/4 at ISO 100. Some minor processing in Adobe Photoshop.

A little bit blurry at the bottom of it, but I guess we can say it's because of the heat. Not my favorite kind but I still downloaded it.

As you mentioned the stability of the camera is amazing. These almost look like dandelions.

Impossible to use as a desktop, far too much going on, would have to squint to read any file names.

While I absolutely love it as a photograph and a piece of art, unless you have an incredibly clean desktop, there's very little space where, as 'lostnumber' says, the icons and their text can be placed and still be read. However... I have a dual monitor setup and the second one has no icons on it: it's currently showing this picture as its wallpaper. :) All in all, some reservations about its usability, but lovely nonetheless.

Why would anyone litter the desktop with files and shortcuts?

I think it would look better as a Mobile wallpaper, it looks better smaller because the smoke is kinda strong when it's enlarged and takes away from the crispness of the sparklers.

Bmndibbb speaks the truth. Desktop icons are a thing of the past. I was late to the game in 2006!

I would be curious to know the aperture speed setting for this pic.

First off, great photos with an unusal for spectacular focus.

I find I download about 7 or 8 out of every 10 backgrounds on this site because with Windows 7 the desktop rotate means I have something new to look at at least two or three times a day :-)

For the people who monotonously complain about the photos and images being 'too busy' to use as destops I can only agree with Bmndibbb.

I should also like to point out that you can change the icons to be whatever you'd like them to be and you'll also find you can break it down to a core two or three icons you actually use on a daily basis. The Windows 7 start bar almost entirely eliminates the need for icons and I almost gagged just recommending a Microsoft product feature ;-)

Once again, great desktop and thanks for uploading it! :-)

@Mister Q

Don't mean to disappoint you but my 3 year old Macbook did all of those things the day I took it out of the box. It is rather nice to have little or no desktop icons though, much cleaner look to the whole thing

Having no experience with Macs I can't comment on the features of them and I'm by no means a Micro$oft fanboy. I'm just pointing out that people moaning about being unable to see their icons could probably do without the majority of them, if not all of them :-)

Windows has been able to do the same thing since Windows XP, possibly Windows ME (forgetting if it did) by using the Quick Bar. Not only could I just put all my icons there with their names, it was also able to "hide" so I only saw it when I moved my mouse over the area I had hidden it. Was very similar to the MacOS Ribbon.

Both helped make very clean desktops. Friends always wondered where I hid my icons.
