v nice. can you smooth out those "contours" at all? can you save directly as .bmp or .png next time? .jpg is good but it distorts things a bit.

did you do it absolutly from scratch or did you work from a pic of clouds or something?

looks like clouds w/ persective and huse/sat to me. Topped off with a lens flare. And a small gradient near the bottom.

I'm not too crazy about the green, but the blue is nice. Smooth it out a bit, and that'll make it even better.

Pretty good. IMO, the colors are a bit harsh, though.

i like it. the light spots are slightly too bright for my liking to be wallpaper, but that's just personal preference.

not with the fadaway perspective, as in, I want clouds on an angle running in the back. Like the green one. They actually look like a skyscape, instead of just random clouds.

lol! I am not a king by far, but I know a small amount, enough to know how to get simple effects like what is above. I also know a lot of tutorial sites, and how to use google, so I can find tutorials rather easy, and I learn from them. But no, I am in no way a 'king' of photoshop. You want photoshop kings? Head over to WA2 and WA3 skinlove.
