Autumn Revelation
This is another look at my "Autumn Cliffs mountain with the camera moved in very close. I've changed the reddish morning glow to a more bluish tone and I have shortened all of the evergreens by half. I worked on this scene on Bucephalus during breaks from the pumpkin patch.

"9:16 1080x1920 portrait resolution?"
Many people are using their monitors vertical please start making 9:16 1080x1920 portrait resolution. It's a great picture but if i can't get PORTRAIT RESOLUTION then I might have to let my account run out. It's sad too because i have loved this website since it began.

Shades of Autumn
This one started out as an attempt to create a "hero tree" (basically a very complex foreground object as opposed to a simple background object) using my Plant Factory software. The background mountains were created using World Machine and my work on them lead to the creation of my Autumn Cliffs render.

Untouched (Autumn)
I recently installed an old copy of Vue 8 on my Arion workstation so I could render an ultra-hires version of "Red and Gold" for print. While waiting for two new Autumn renders to finish on Shadowfax and Bucephalus I went looking through my old Vue files for likely candidates for new print renders. That's when I came across this Autumn version of "Untouched that I created way back in 2008 but for some reason never got around to rendering full-size. Here's the scene rendered at 5K. What do you think? Pickle Jar or Gallery??

The Golden Hour
The Plant Factory is an incredibly powerful addition to my 3D arsenal. I just need to spend a few hours every day trying to learn exactly what everything does. This piece is the result of one such exploration. The trees looks quite alien, I agree, but I wanted to see what that would look like rendered.

I will most likely most another version of this in the near future, but I thought it looked interesting enough to share as is. Let me know what you think!

For some reason, your pickle jar version is better (to me) than the gallery version. A little more detail, less light intrusion. A much softer feeling, yet still powerful.

"Texture Problem"
I don't know if you're reading comments on older stuff. I had this scene up on my monitor and noticed a problem with the tree bark texture on the left monitor in the dual screen versions. It's very distracting. I really like this scene so I hope maybe you could re-render it with the texture fixed at some point.

Sierra Autumn
An Autumn version of my "Sierra (2012)" render. I actually had to render this one twice (once with green leaves and once with fall colors) and combine them in Photoshop so I could vary the leaves on a "per-tree" basis.

A bit harsh, but there is something weird about it. My initial reaction when in the browser was that it was beautiful, but in dual screen it looks weird. I think a big problem is the floating rocks - like gravity doesn't exist here...yet the water stays so still and down that the rocks don't have water marks.

First Blush
This one is a "mental photograph" of sorts. I was driving on an eastern Iowa freeway in mid-Sept 2011 when I looked to my right and saw a green, summer-like, wooded area with this one blazing red tree sticking out like a torch. I only glimpsed the scene for about 5 seconds, but I thought it would make an interesting wallpaper. I fired up Vue when I got home and constructed this scene from memory (with a bit of artistic license). I hope you like it! The third and fourth versions I rendered deviate a bit from my initial inspiration. The second version looked very much like what I saw on the roadside, but I wanted to try something a little more subtle. Vue doesn't allow you to vary the leaf color on a "per-branch" level so I rendered a few different shades and composited them in Photoshop.

Well, you know, some people feel the need to trash the work of others to make themselves feel better about what's lacking in their own lives. First Blush in all its superb iterations is one of my fall favorites; it always goes up in September. Thanks, DMT. And thank you, Ryan!

Elegy
In August 2011 a Member (thanks Manu!) sent me a link to a photo on National Geographic's website which reminded him of my "Autumnwood" wallpaper. I thought it would be a fun project to make my own version of the scene and this is the result. Now, it isn't a complete copy. I didn't have the photo open in another window while I was working on it, but it was definitely inspired by the NatGeo photo however.

The autumn version of my "Gotham Garden" series. Originally I rendered this as a sunset scene but found that the orange sky and the autumn leaves did not contrast enough.

I have always loved the Gotham wallapapers, but the 2010 redesigns have become a seasonal staple on my monitor, and when I bought a second monitor it became even better. I love this rendering especially, I think it's the finest of the Gotham series. Now I ask... will there be a WINTER rendering?? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE??!

Canopy Creek (Autumn)
I changed the leaf textures from "Canopy Creek (Summer)" and replaced the leafy underbrush with golden grass. I wanted to make sure to keep some green leaves visible here and there to note that the transition to fall was not yet complete.

Red and Gold
This image is a follow-up to Green and Gold. The tree is the same and because each branch is an individual Vue tree object I can color the leaves on one branch differently that the others. I had always been dissatisfied with the control Vue gives over the leaf coloration on a tree-by-tree basis and this is the best workaround that I've found thus far.

Out of all the wallpapers on this site, this is probably my favorite. I like all the versions of this one, but the fall version is the best. Something about the vivid autumn leaves against the grey sky. Just awesome. Ryan, you should do a Night version, with the tree silhouetted against the moon and night sky.

This is still my favorite. I loved the original in 2000, and love this one as well - I always enjoy seeing it pop up in my desktop wallpaper rotation. While it would be great to see a larger version of this, perhaps it's time for a 2016 update? That would be something worth getting a print of.

I can't wait for Autumn or Summer to use this background! I try to use backgrounds that correspond with the time of year.



I would absolutely LOVE to see a winter version of this. Such a beautiful majestic view would look wonderful with snow everywhere. I know it would be tough having to make all the trees sticky (at least I would assume it would be... I don't know these programs at all), but dang that would be freakin sweet!

"Retrospective comment"
I too have always liked this one -- at least since I first found the site 2002-ish. It has been my background several times over the years during the fall, and it is again right now.



Yesterday, I had a new thought about it: if it is ever "updated," perhaps the level of the sun in the sky might be "lowered." While it might well be an effect of my settings, it seems to me that the overall ambient light level does not seem to match how high the sun is in the sky. In other words, the overall light level and color suggest a later time of day than the sun position does.

That said, if I were re-rating it today, I'd still consider it a 9.5, 'cause I still just love it. Thanks again, Ryan, well done and keep up the good work.

I been using your desktop wallpapers since at least this wallpaper was released. I know I had earlier ones but this is the one I remember clearly using.

I can't confirm as i have had a desktop folder of wallpapers on multiple different computers and since going to 4k, discarded the older ones as they look like postage stamps now

I would use this now if it were bigger :)
