Do you have any plans to make your collection of 15 photographs available for the public to download and use as wallpapers? To me it doesn’t sound like they did, which makes things even greater from my own point of view. I decided to climb those rocks and take a shot looking along the entire coast. Could you summarize the Windows Vista project, and deliver some details as to the locations visited, the time you have dedicated, the amount of work and the result? Well done, Long, for a fabulous interview. My assignment was to create genuine images to be part of the Windows Vista desktop wallpaper collection.

I think the most exciting image to shoot for me was “Explore the Romance”. I will be offering photographs from the entire photoshoot, not just the It was approaching sunset time and the light temperature, and weather conditions were perfect. I think Flickr is an excellent photographic community.

Go get them now! Those images will be ready in the very near future. How did you manage to fit Vista into your work with photography? Long, you are one of the true spirits of the whole Windows community!


In total, I spent about darrwish days on shooting, producing close to RAW digital images.

Twitter app for Windows, Speedo Plus: Two of my images are featured in the Vista collection. I usually do that using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional. To me, vizta 5 images symbolize the start of my wide recognition as a photographer.

Ashlandand a few other spots. Thanks for hamae great work! Finding vistas – istartedsomething. Right before pressing the exposure button an viata man? Those 5 images might be worth more or less to Microsoft. There is just so much more to see on land like rivers, woods, hills, mountains and wildlife.

And what were they worth to Microsoft? I am the kind of guy who enjoys looking at a landscape, take his time picking the right lens and setting the tripod for a composition, find a good metering point, hook-up a filter or two, and execute the shot!

The total amount of images I had at the end was a little over RAW files averaging to shots per day. They have helped the look of Vista and given us a glimpse of your artistry. Keep up the good work in both worlds of imaging!!!! I use an 8. Only they have the answer. When I replied with approval, I received an official letter from Microsoft in that regard.


I hope that you were paid propperly for your intelectual property. Once the conversion process is finished, I use photoshop to fine tune the hamax.

I got a short Flickr message asking me if I was interested in selling some of my work, without mentioning the party that is interested in buying. To be out there, in the middle of nowhere, with a tripod and a backpack is just the most thrilling experiences. When I looked through my view-finder it was perfect.

Actually, I am not sure yet how it feels. On the other hand, hakad to me, at this point, is just a way to escape the daily routine and get outside my house to do something different. I See Your From Kuwait!
