Both backgrounds are quite nice.

Night Wing, yours is a very good example of correct HDR/tone mapping. The details in the darker regions are crisp, and the color palette is gently enhanced-- the sunset colors still look natural. I've seen some attempts at shots like this where the tone mapping was way overdone and the sky looked garish and surreal, like the atmospheric special effects in the 70s movie Damnation Alley.

Very nice. I was searching for backgrounds recently and stumbled on this one which is considered to be glitch art I believe. So I did a search for more glitch art but I didn't really care for most of what I saw. This one seemed different from all the rest. There is order behind the chaos. Or is there?

I have moved the topic in the Desktop screenshots section, where it belongs. :wink:
