Was just tinkering around in Bryce the other day and this is what was the result.. Simple, yet complex enough at the same time.. Hope you all enjoy.. Please comment and vote..

I agree with you. However, I would have liked to see the objects on the right hand side. Since most desktops will have icons plastered all over the left and it will spoil your work.
Still, well done, a realistic and quality wallpaper.

Works perfectly on my mac though... Only I got 1600x1200 screen resolution. ;) Nudge, nudge. Simplexity or what to call it, is an art in it self. I'm a huge fan of graphically seemingly simple but well thought out pieces. Kudos!

Yes you could easily mirror it to the other side for desktop use. THis is really nicely done though!

There's an emptiness inside her and she'd do anything to fill it in. Though it's red blood bleeding from her now, it's more like cold blue ice in her heart. She feels like kicking out all the windows and setting fire to this life. She could change everything about her using colors bold and bright, but all the colors mix grey. ~*DaveMatthewsBand*~

I will have to say: this is one of the best images I have seen in quite some time. Very clean, very bright, and it makes a wonderful desktop. It reminds me of a website I have visited quite a few times:

You should check it out sometime... make sure and watch the intro!

It's very hard to make a simple image that's still sophisticated and sharp-- but you did it! This is nice. But there should be another ring continuing on the top, it shouldn't stop like that it breaks the flow.

I hold it true that thoughts are things; They're endowed with bodies, breath and wings: And that we send them forth to fill the world with good results, or ill. That which we call our secret thought speeds forth to earth's remotest spot, leaving it's blessings or it's woes like tracks behind it as it goes. We build our future, thought by thought for good or for ill, yet know it not. Yet so the universe was wrought . Thought is another name for fate. Choose then thy destiny and wait, for Love brings Love and Hate brings Hate. - Henry Van Dyke.

Very clever. Things like this seem obvious once someone else has thought of them. I agree with reddawg that the rings need to continue; I would also suggest that you either zoom in or out so that half the top and bottom rings are showing, rather than such a small amount.

One of your best ones yet. I love the perfect icy blue color you picked for it, and the idea of contrasting it with a purely white background was a very good idea. It's simple, yet elegant in a way.

As you say, it is simple but it works well. Nice contrast of colours.

I am like Yin & Yang, my lighter side is balanced by my darkerside, embrace both & you get the whole me, play with one & you will meet the other... ~ And lastly, View an image, vote on it, then bloody comment on it. How else are we artists to know what you like or don't if you do not tell us?

I adore this image. Seen it a million times up on the home page and it caught my eye every single time and have eventually sucumbed to temptation and downloaded it :) I love the textures and colours in this. Its so unusual but so completely perfect. Nice work 10/10

My desktop icons dock anywhere so it can be on the right or left. For this background, I have my icons along the right hand of the screen. Getting tons of compliments.

I like how the white doesn't seem like a lack of attention for a background, but rather too bright to focus on. The description fits. I love it. :-)

Elegant, simple and striking. Great blue.

I don't have any icons on my desktop, though. But my dock is on the right, so I definitely prefer the column on the left.

Just to let you know, your image has been used over on dA [Link]. Don't know if permission has already been requested but there's no link or anything so I assumed not.
