Here's a shot I took the other night. A wee bit of manipulation was put into this one.
This one is 3200x1200 (downloaded) - suitable for 2x 1600x1200 displays

If you enjoy scenery style wallpaper that offers a serene look at some incredible landscapes, this artist is one to watch. This is just one of many images that could be posted as a Daily Deviation. (
yeah i do know this very well. my PC is acutally almost dying with 5 RAW shots... to merge them... I really have the need for a new PC with lots of RAM. Right now my 512 MB sucks ... 2 RAW images loaded and its full.
Looks great until you see it at actual size. What's your method here, take multiple pics and splice them all atop impossibly gorgeous skies? These would be really impressive if they were single photographs, but I'm sensing some funny business here... am I wrong?
It's a panoramic of multiple pics.... with the sky modified a wee bit to bring out the colours. I usually take the photos with the camera on its side so that the resulting pic is in the highest resolution possible.
Thanks for the comment!
Well that's a good technique to create as large an image as possible, but not exactly what I was referring to. What's with the artifacting in the layers of foliage against the sky? Looks like different elements were just auto-extracted and placed on top of the sky background. If that's not the case then why the odd pixelization around, say, the tree in this one?
What I have done is I've performed a colour selection to mask out the sky. The edges where the leaves in the tree meet the sky are a slightly off those colours selected, which made it very difficult to mask everything I wanted to. I use a bit of feathering but all that did was end up selecting more of the leaves than I wanted to - so when I got around to tweaking the sky's colours the edges of the leaves got tweaked as well - producing the artifacts. I suppose if I put a lot of time into it I could clean it up, but I'm too lazy.
