I thought "Shifting Sands" was a good candidate for a night time version. Most of my night versions are more about the sky than the ground, but I here I wanted the muted light of a newly risen Moon to highlight the curves and waves of the sand dunes (some in silhouette). Let me know what you think!

"Display Fusion is the Bomb"
Was looking to displays Ryan's work on a multi-monitor stack. He suggested Display Fusion. All issues resolved! The migration is perfect in combination. Took a slight bit to learn the software, otherwise no problem. Nice!

"Shifting Dands"
The sands of the Sahara look so desolate. Not the kind of plaice I'd call home!

"Shifting Sands Night"
The dark reds and blues give it a spooky aura.

"My new background!"
I really like this one and I tend to go for darker colors so this fits as my new background to a tee, great work!

I'm a fan of all your night versions. I've just downloaded the Dualscreen ... I love it! Well Done Ryan.

"We love the nightlife.. "
Thanks for this one, Ryan. Looking forward to the Dualscreen to add to my 3840 Blasphemous slide show. Lovely.

"Very Nice!"
I love Shifting Sands and adding the night version just adds to it. I was looking for a new night theme to use and this will work! Nice job!

I have the day and night version alternating on my desktop. They're both soo spectacular its hard getting any work done.Well done Ryan, home run on these!!

What resolution are you using? I did add stars but they might not be as noticeable in lower resolutions.

Wed May 31, 2017 at 12:00 pm

The night version is nice. I understand that you wanted to put the focus on the dunes but I miss seeing at least some stars in this.

"Nice Night View"

"Shifting Sands Night"
Really need this in daul screen as other ones.

"Love it"
I already set the daytime version as background and I'm thinking of this one as background for my music pc that I often use at night :)

There's one thing I'd tweak and that's the darkness of the scky itself. It now looks (on my not-so-good laptop screen) as overexposed.

Theres something about this image that just makes the air look soooo crisp and clean. Its beautiful.

Love the Night Version, This one is awesome, Great Work Ryan.

"Very Cool"
I like it a lot, the night version does just one thing though, it brings out the adventurer in me and I visualize a camp with a Land Rover out there in the dark....
