Last week's winner for the weekly google hashtag photo competition. It's not too late to submit your image for this week's comp. Just check out our page for the details.

Enjoy!
This Week's Winner...

A few weeks ago I’d said that there were too many green wallpapers lately. I think this boils down to the fact nature offers some of the best wallpapers for our computer, plus green is a calming colour, and god knows I need to calm down sometimes whilst looking at my laptop after a few hours! This week, however, I thought I’d jazz it up with a rather peculiar capture.

Can you guess what it is yet? Have a scroll down quickly and check out the sample image. There was no Photoshop trickery involved here. No motion blurs added and no colour saturation tweaked, but it’s still a very abstract image. If I told you it was taken from inside a vehicle, would you get any closer to guessing?

+Lars Christian Nygård took this from the inside of his car when he went through a carwash! What you are looking at here are the drops of water on his windscreen and the coloured brushes whizzing around. Brilliant! Who’d have thought it?

Lars is a radiographer living and working in Elverum, Norway. “As a hobby I enjoy macro and nature photography. I like to photograph flowers, insects, spiders, reptiles and animals. Also sometimes I do landscape and portraits. Recently I’ve been focusing a little on creating desktop wallpapers. It’s a genre that requires interesting photos with colors or details, but also flat space. It needs to be both beautiful and relaxing to the eye.”

OK, so how was this week’s winning image captured? “The car wash photo was captured as I (suprise) sat in my car in the car wash. I saw the colors of the brushes and the water on my windscreen and though it might make a great wallpaper.
Recently I’ve been paying some attention to lichen. It’s so colorful and full of beauty, but yet so easy to overlook.”

You can check out Lars on Google Plus of course where “I have found G+ to be a great source of inspiration for my photography. So many talented photographers keep my stream filled with wonderful photos”, says he. You can also follow more of his photography at his blog. Altogether now: “workin’ at the car wash, yeah, the car wash, girl!”

A superb winning wallpaper this week, quite fantastic! Here's the summary with the relevant download link below. Desktop wallpapers for iphone, Galaxy, PC and all that guff!

There's been a lot of talk about 'super moon' this week, with a plethora of lunar-themed images appearing all over the internet. Supermoon Schupermoon, pah! You want to see a real night-time sky shot? Then look no further than this week's incredible submission from +Chandra Mulpuri.

Before I launch into that I do just want to give a special shout-out to +Remo Primatesta. I've mentioned Remo before and he has been patiently submitting work to wallpaperwednesdaycontest for many weeks now. I can tell you now that I will be short-listing Remo's work next week, not least for his consistency and patience, but mainly for the quality of his macro shots. If you think I'm exaggerating, just take a look at the shot of the iris at the link below. Hang on on there, Remo, fingers crossed for next week ;)

Back to the night sky and over to Chandra, a photographer from Bay Area, California. “This was taken on March.17th, within Denali National Park, Alaska where the Alaskan Railway line cuts through the park. It's actually a Panoramic shot with 3 different shots combined - all of them taken at 16mm APS-C at ISO 800, f/2.8 for 5s.”

I've been watching Chandra's submissions on G+ recently and they really are quite extraordinary. If you like his stuff catch him on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/chandra.mulpuri) and, of course, on GooglePlus. https://plus.google.com/u/0/100809549323347785977/posts

Wallpaper Contest Winner Announced!

New York, New York, so good they used it twice!

This week's winning image is absolutely extraordinary and not something I have seen much of, either in this contest or on GooglePlus. It's not the first time Manhattan has been featured, though. If you cast your mind all the way back to WallpaperWednesdayContest #02 you may remember a rather splendid tilt-shift effort by +Tom Gehrke.

+Simos Xenakis's winner this week is of Upper East Side, Manhattan, and a view many of us are quite familiar with, but just look at the effect he has created. What wins Simos kudos, however, is the fact his effort was all done in-camera and not Photoshop. Yep, study it and weep, Adobe-monkeys, I didn't believe it either!

"It was taken with a slower shutter speed using intentional camera movement to create the blurring effect. No Photoshopping or computerized blurring going on here - the effect was achieved strictly straight out of camera. In post I just did some Lightroom tonal adjustments, tweaking of the colors, and applied a wider crop."

Even more amazing is that Simos has only been shooting with a dSLR for a few months, which is why he doesn't yet have a portfolio. However you can find all his other work on this G+ profile, so if you like this piece, please go tell him so here!

Oh, one more thing. If you are wondering why we're a day late, it's because we had a plethora of excellent submissions last week and I notified a number of the photographers to get in touch. Coincidentally they were all out of town until yesterday but they've all now come back and I have a list as long as my arm of potentials. Expect more excellent photography next week!
