    Technically it's an Enzo Ferrari, named after the founder of Ferrari. Most people just call it a "Ferrari Enzo", even though that's incorrect. :p

    As long as you respect it feel free to play with it but please give me credit for the original if you do. :)

    Also, I'll admit that's a (poorly) photoshopped version of the true original. I removed some lady standing behind the car before putting it as my wallpaper (and, subsequently, posting it here).

    Using this image for my desktop. Stilled it from Star Trek 3 BluRay. The part where Kirk is stealing the enterprise. I know it wasn't the best of the star trek movies, but this particular part of the movie always has made me smile ;)
    I would have upscaled to 2560 x 1600, but I thought it lost a little too much quality. I've already stretched it from ~800 pixels high, to 1200 pixels high.

    I was going to say, clearly stretched, it's lost a lot of its clarity.

    Yah, I haven't bothered installing my Photoshop plugins yet. I need to reformat windows more than ever now. Something is really screwy now. I can't upload images to either photobucket or imageshack from my main pc. I've uninstalled 2 possible suspects, but no effect.
    Here's another. Slingshot around the sun :D

    For those interested in either the high resolution(2560), or the 1920 resolution, they're located at the following address. http://www.wallpaperseek.com/man-tree-wallpapers_w6197.html

    It's pictures like this, that make Photoshop one of my more favored programs :D

    I plan on attempting a female version of this. No promises on a timetable though...

    Oh no! While I'm confident I can come close to this, this was NOT my doing LOL! I was simply inspired by this work. My version will be female ;)

    All be darned. Firefox remembered my cookies from 5 months ago.

    Working on a new wallpaper. What do you think so far? I plan on maybe some fish, a castle, and some marine plant life. This may look familiar to some. I used a tutorial for the Blue gradient, and light source. The gravel however was my idea :p

    OK, Of course your omeg symbal is your own personel thing no need to comment on that, the skyline is ok if you like plain, I'm into more a little excotic but dark, I like to see my icons, to lite of a screen and they sort of make me strain my eyes. But no matter, keep up the good work.

    Plain eh? I can see I have my work cut out for me LOL! I too am more into darker scenery. I usually prefer to work on space like scenery. But I do like marine environments as well. I have some wild ideas for this wallpaper too :p

    This link takes you to the wallpaper
    that's now the background for all the Icons
    on my monitor ( you'll see the image without the Icons ).
    * Click image for massive enlargement.
    Click the image a second time and put it back
    in it's original state ( it's a bit fuzzy ). So, right-click
    your mouse and select 'Refresh' to put image back in sharp focus.

    NOTE:
    I searched & searched & searched the internet to find this gem.
    It looks great with all the Icons to the left side in three columns.

    Hope some of you members think it's awesome too !

    Looks good to me. I love creating Smoke and flames in photoshop. Not too good with Flames yet, but I'm getting there :p
