For my new screen setup, I wanted some fresh, dual screen full HD – 3840×1200 pixel, to be precise – wallpapers. Due to lack of suitable landscape oriented images, I experimented with rotated motives. These are the results:
When I stood on Queen’s Walk in London, next to the National Theatre (roughly here; btw: this is one of the few occasions where “here” is a sensible choice for a link text, but I digress…), I could not help but notice the abundance of lighting. So I opened the shutter and waved my camera around. Here are the (unedited, except for level adjustments) results:
From this handy index of high resolution Hubble images I have derived another set of three screen wide (3·(1920×1200) = 5760×1200) space wallpapers:
I needed three screen wide wallpapers in resolution 5760×1200. But there were only a hand full of decent ones. So I searched the European Space Organisation image archive for material. Luckily, they release their photos under a Creative Commons license, i.e. the CC-BY 4.0. These four wallpapers are based on two images: Carina Nebula, NGC 3372 by ESO/T. Preibisch and the Milky Way by ESO/S. Brunier.
After the post Berlin wallpapers from 2011, here the second batch of assorted photos from Berlin.
Fernsehturm Berlin offers a great view over the city. I was up there in the morning on a sunny day. A milky mist had not yet vanished, covering everything in a blurry aura. Enjoy!
Photographed in Berlin’s Museum of Technology.
From April to October 2013, Pinakothek der Moderne had to close for renovation. During that time, a temporary exhibition space called Schaustelle was erected. Here is my take on the construction:
After being closed for several months of renovation – strange for an almost new building – the Pinakothek der Moderne is open again and still has its Sunday admission of 1€. Reason enough to revisit my favourite spot for high-key photography. The following pictures are almost unedited, cropped photos taken with
light overexposure. Like usual, they have 1920×1080 (aka 1080p or FullHD) resolution. Enjoy!
A new collection of 5 self-made desktop wallpapers in 1920×1080 (Full HD) resolution. Photos with dominant colour red, cropped and adjusted using GIMP, then heavily blurred. For example, the last image shows a car’s dashboard with illuminated control knobs.
These photos were recorded in University Town, a new campus of NUS. Its architecture is quite impressive, yet not intimidating. These pictures show some details in the new sports building that was opened last month.
For the darker season some darker desktop wallpapers, again in tablet-friendly 2048×2048 resolution. The photos were taken mainly in Singapore and show a party crowd under a sphere-shaped light, a man reading under the floodlight of the sport stadium nearby and defocused street lights, reflected on water. The street picture shows the bridges over Marina Bay; notable is the iconic DNA bridge in blue on the left side. The rainbow is a peculiar light decoration next to my workplace.
