As soon as the Coronavirus pandemic started shutting down daily life around me I knew that it was time to start working on a nice, calm, tropical wallpaper. I've been meaning to revisit "Island Time" for quite a while now and the time seemed right. I still may play around with some things here but I thought it looked nice enough to share as is. I hope it helps you "find your beach" if only virtually.

If you have a chance, I would love to see what else you include in a triple screen version :)

"Multi-screen "
Wondering if multi-screen versions are still in the works?

"Quite a Rendition!"
I may be biased, but what the heck! At a time like this, such an image is what I most enjoy. Thanks for the image on my birthday!

Are you going to put multi-screens of this up? I need them.

"Love the revisit!"
Great revisit! Love all your work but perfect timing on this release. Goes perfect with a track of the same name by a local band - Bumpin Uglies - Island Time. Thanks for all your great work over the years, Ryan!

"Beautiful but tilted"
As per the title, this is a beautiful scene for which I am eagerly awaiting a dual-screen version, but I do wish it didn't feel like the whole picture was tilted to the left; it gives me a vague sense of vertigo. It seems like it needs to be rotated clockwise about 20 degrees or so.

"Almost perfect..."
I really like this one. The concept is a 10 for sure. I marked it as a 9, though. For me, the water-sand "interface" doesn't work. It looks too clean and sharp, as if this is the first wave to fall on almost perfectly smooth, never damped sand. And yet, there's some water visible further "inland" up the beach. Somehow, it doesn't add up visually. Again, however, the overall work is so good that it's still a solid 9 in my eyes. It's on my desktop at the moment, in fact. ;)

"Love those waves"
Gorgeous. Especially love the waves hitting the shore.

'I hope it helps you "find your beach" if only virtually.'

I see what you did there.

"Prefer the original"
Nice, but I definitely prefer the original.

There seems to be something weird, almost unnatural, with the light in some of your recent nature scenes. This one too looks somewhat like an HDR photo. Everything seems to glow (it's not my IPS-2560x1600 monitor).

Very nice to have new and uplifting art for my monitor as I stare at it more these days! I live in Hawaii and still don't get to the beach very much. Watching for the dual screen render. Thanks!!

Looks good.

"Nice remake!"
One of my favs back in the day! Nice remake!

Tue March 17, 2020 at 12:56 pm

well done and beautiful

Tue March 17, 2020 at 12:51 pm

"worthy update"
Although I thought the original was fine, this is certainly a very nice update.
