A nice shiny glossy Windows XP logo! I had initially just made this for myself but I got many requests for it after I posted my desktop, so I made a few colors variations and will post it here. I know it's not a very original subject, but it's just for fun.
The zip contains 15 variations, various backgrounds with a black logo, some with a multi-colored XP logo and some with a Longhorn colored logo.
There is also a 1600x1200 zip available for those with standard ratio screen displays.
EDIT: Just wanted to note that the bottom row of color variations is only for the preview and does not actually appear on the individual wallpapers.
the whole day I was resaving all pictures from my terragen gallery .. it's time for my Terra Universe [link] to awake .. hope soon I will have possibility to upload all updates .. all pictures there were low-contrasted, I had to repair it .. but they were so many that I still have not finished all work .. and it made me so terribly tired that I could not think I would be able do do something more tonight .. but I decided to try ..
that is nothing special indeed .. just another picture based on terragen landscape I made quite long ago (this is rerendering in larger resolution specially for the picture) .. but I like a lot the colors of this piece .. Deep blue crystal-clear water is what I wanted to reach at first when I rendered this landscape .. and I think it's one of the most inportant details here .. I also like soft clouds and not very bright but beautiful evening light ..
the photo I used is from the same series as Ocean Treasures [link] .. I sill don't like the way I blended it, feel something very wrong, but I can't do anyhthing more now .. I've done too much work today and just have no strength to go on redacting all details .. anyway I feel really good because I've done it .. time when I can't create anything depresses me ..
in this picture I see something that is very close to the feeling I have being alone with the nature .. I usually spend every summer photographing sunsets .. I have to run from one place to another to catch the same sunset in different sights and I'm always afraid that I'll be late and some beautiful clouds would have gone .. in my dreams I very often have situations when I see some amazing unreal sunset and I run to take my camera but when I'm back sunset has gone or my camera is broken .. such dreams are real nightmares for me .. so here I feel like photographing something unreal from my dream and what is most pleasant is that I can control it .. it's the reason why I love terragen art (for me it's the way to create the world I want to photograph), and I feel even more free working with photoshop (possibilities of it olny limited with your imagination) .. so this picture is not very strong technically or by deep meaning, it's more like shot from some beautiful dream .. though as always it brings my emotions, because I just can't create anything not giving my emotions to it ..
