waiting for the world to turn

It's been nearly exactly one year since I started doing these kind of wallpapers. And it's been quite a while since I've been around, studying physics doesn't leave much spare time.

Anyways, here's a little calm one, quite simple. It was inspired by a photo by *liike here at DevArt. Since he did not gave me permission to use his picture, I had to rework it completely to remove all elements I borrowed from him in the first version and I feel I'm far enough from his picture.

You might want to resaturate it to optimum colors on your monitor (it looks a little different on my monitors).

Included are sizes: 1600x1400, 1400x1050, 1280x1024

Comments and ratings are as welcome as they were a year ago ;)

Hello, the picture is great.

I just wanted to ask, if I am allowed to use this picture in a website about astronomy which I am about to create. It will be information system for small astronomy organization and also school project, nothing comercial.

What do you think? :)
hermik Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010
Hi, as long as the site doesn't produce any commercial value it's OK as long as you credit me properly on the site with a link to my website ([link]) and send me a link to it as soon as it is online.
antonindanek Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2010
Alright, will do that gladly. It will take few months before it's finished (not really because of the size of the project but because I am going to start working on it next semester) but thank you in advance.

Very cool.
aleksyandr Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2008
I last posted on this over two years ago, and since then, it is still, by far, my favorite wallpaper. Unfortunately, now I have a widescreen monitor, so it is stretched a bit whenever I use it. So I just wanted to revisit this and make a humble request for a widescreen version!

I thought this picture was cool back when I first joined deviantart. Now after being here a year and seeing a lot of excellent work, I think it's still damn cool. One of my favorite, of not THE favorite, background picture I've seen. I even look it more than the original picture.
