    Taken circa 1998 with my very first digital camera: an Olympus something-or-other-500,
    with a whopping 0.8 megapixels. I keep this because I was so amazed at how well it
    turned out, and I even printed it at 8x10.

    I try to change mine every month or two. I just changed mine tonight. I took these two in the local mountains over the weekend. They're a bit dark but the sky looks better that way.

    That macro lens's bokeh is really nice, Frog. :thumbsup:

    Re: Your Desktop Photo... Why?

    Thanks Alex. I know about bokeh but never think of it when shooting.
    Maybe the macro will change that.
    Keep Shooting!

    Re: Your Desktop Photo... Why?

    I like to use my own shots. I prefer them to be of nature and I like them to have a nice texture that will sit well when I have a lot of windows open or my desktop is covered with icons (i clean it up every couple of months but they have a habbit of growing back) I also run two monitors. sometimes I duplicate the shot across both but recently I have been choosing a shot that will spread over both. this recent one was stretched (not cropped) in photoshop. I then grabbed the hills which had gotten a little bit too thin and put them back in at their original size with a layer mask.

    I've changed mine to one of the first photos I posted on PR. It reminds me where I started. - TF

    Re: Your Desktop Photo... Why?

    These are in order-->

    My work desktop now --> as a joke
    My work desktop when we were having a layoff in a month --> as a joke and a talisman to keep the firing gods from noticing me.
    My laptop --> Kasiakia Falls (probably misspelling that) at Starved Rock State Park. I got the laptop not long after that trip.
    My home desktop --> One of my all time favorite pictures I ever took.

    I have, quite a few times in fact. My current is a shot I got of a Gaboon Viper last time I was at the zoo. Before that was my GF Carla with her first red fish.

    Re: Your Desktop Photo... Why?

    Whipped up a new desktop today and thought I'd share :lol: The "why?" should be pretty self explanatory! My 8 month old iMac has officially surpassed all my windows machines combined (10 years worth) in number of days in the shop for repair...

    Re: Your Desktop Photo... Why?

    I'll play!

    I usually cycle fairly frequently through the different monitors, but here's the one currently on my desktop



    And here's the one currently on one of the laptops:
    Surf at Sunset

    As for why? I'm not really sure other than I get bored of what's on there and change to something else. Usually my own shots, but I do keep a desktop widget that pulls my favorites from flickr and other sites to help keep me inspired.

    Thanks,

    PC
