At first this might seem dumb, but just use it. I think you'll like it.

I agree with Northwall and I would like to add that it looks like someone shook dandruff on a black piece of paper.

Yeah I was kinda wondering about some of those comments. :-) It's not supposed to be really special and complex though. If you just want a starfield as your wallpaper then this is the best I've seen.

Actually, I meditate often. And believe it or not, you can look very deeply into this starfield. It gives the most satisfying feeling of space that I have yet seen. And, no, I don't bootlick. I calls em as I sees em.
Besides, I'm a minister. Why would I lie?

If you stare at the picture closely you can see that there are images contained within the stars.

Someone needs Selsun Blue for the bad dandruff. No offense to the creator, but you could have at least put some light mapping or sprites in there somewhere to keep it from looking like it was made in paint.

I like this. To any people who complain about how it looks like it was made in paint, you're totally missing the point of this image. Its not supposed to be complicated and have any sprites or light mapping. If you look at the sky at night, you wont see much other than some pinpricks of white light (and the occasional airplane)

No point in making things more complicated than they need to be.

It was made in Photoshop. Add some gaussian, monochromatic (amount about 25 or so) noise to a black background. Lazy, lazy Caedes ;D

WOW!!! impressive. i put this on the computer at home, and my dad really likes it. i use it every so often, just because it's cool. sure, there's better stuff, but not much.

Well...What is there to say about this one....honestly.......

I suppose it isn't bad for computers with poor graphics cards, but anyone could easily create this. I suppose I could easily create a computer program to randomly plot thousands of pixels of slight luminosity changes on a large screen and get the same effect. But not too bad, and I highly doubt this is MS-Paint ;) and dont DIS the MS PAINT! :D it takes real skills to do something in that! lol

Although it kind of looks interesting, I can't believe how high the c-index
We should be honest in saying that it wasn't exactly an image with a whole lot of effort, its in bryce, set the star ammount to high, set intensity to somewhat low, and viola!

There's been so much to say about such a simple pic.. I'm with the "what's up with the ridiculously high c-index" posse, I think.. Then again, I always wanted to know if anyone actually used those "add noise" functions for any real purpose...

Good job. I took a starfield photo from a top New Found Gap in the Smoky Mountains at 4:00 AM but have avoided posting it because the icon would be so dark. I've only used it as backgrounds for other images. I think I'll upload it soon to see if it does this well. Thanks for the inspiration. Beautiful image.

ok - this picture is plain, simple and makes a good wallpaper. But, I think the real beauty is the amount of emotion and discussion this picture has generated! Just look at it! Opionions range across the whole spectrum from outright abuse to high praise.

Faved as much for your unique and funny post as for the image. I'm a backyard astronomer (as indicated by my avatar) so this one probably means more to me than to most members. thanks.
