Not a wind up, or a funny either. Just some of the pictures that microsoft were considering for bundling with vista as wallpapers, but didnt make the final cut.

The psycho minds at Microsoft know that most of us would rather be sat looking out onto one of those beautiful landscapes than stressfully sat behind their turgid screens.

Great photos but I'm sure a 3 years old could take them.
Once you are on location,simply 'click'.

There's been quite a lot of good post-production work done on those shots, probably in Photoshop, which I think is a bit beyond the average three-year-old. For my taste there is a little too much use of colour cast, but that's just my preference - they're lovely landscapes.

have no need to critique a picture. For these sort of things there is only one test. (for me anyhow) thats 'is it pleasing to the eye?' and the answer to that (for those images I posted the link to) is a resounding yes! But I do recognise and appreciate that others are more interested in the nuts and bolts of images, and good for them.

carolineann- He does say that two of them are currently shipped with the vista install disk.

No great shakes though. I merely thought that some would be interested in seeing some of the 'also rans'.

WhiteTruckMan -- I appreciated the link - great photos - many thanks

I did notice my error. :(

I also appreciate the link and the talent of Hamad Darwish.

I did smile to my self when looking at the shots and wondered if Hamad had received appropriate reward for the work.
My mind then turned to who actually had the copyright of the shots published, as they appear to be available for downloading from a number of web sites now.

Would it be the Photographer? or Microsoft?
(bearing in mind there eula,etc.) But that's an other topic I suppose. ;)

Very nice collection, I would have thought it would have been better for MS to have them all included rather than the few they gave.
