"Higher resolution?"
Ryan: if updating it is a lot of work, would it at least be possible to make a higher resolution render of the same picture?

I'd absolutely love to have something I can print..

This is the picture that brought me to It's hard to describe how impressed I was when I first saw it.

I really very much hope that there will be an update for it!

What makes this picture my favorite is the use of perspective. The camera angle enhances the feeling of depth and vertigo, making the city feel gargantuan, forbidden, and mysterious. The sparse use of color enhances the effect even further. The many lights that can be seen in the buildings give the viewer an idea of the multitude that inhabits even a small portion of the city, and the fact that you can't see the street below due to the haze makes you wonder how high those buildings go.

I love it, and I hope that I see an update in the future.

I've been working on-and-off on an update for the past year or so.

"Old classic"
First time I saw this wallpaper was in '99 on a friend's computer. Something back then made me remember it and wonder where it originated from and who made it?!

When I was introduced to DB in '01 I stumbled across it again. It has been my wallpaper(on and off) sinceā€¦

An all-time personal favourite. Still waiting for a remake in 3840 x 1080.

"Still a Favorite"
This one is still one of my all-time favorites. I first saw those towers in '98, the year I was introduced to your site, and I wondered: Wouldn't they sway in the wind? And that line of thought brought me to a place, far above the land, where the buildings did indeed sway...looking and behaving, at that distance, just like the blades of grass they must have replaced, how many millenia ago.

Thank you for inspiring that thought!

"Love the Gotham series"
This is a great wallpaper (all the Gotham ones are great), especially when you look at most other wallpapers from 1998. This is far and away the best of '98.
