High Dynamic Range Wallpapers

The website HDR walls is getting some huge news coverage since yesterday and is having troubles serving all visitors because of cpu and bandwidth limitations. I was pondering quite a bit but thought that I post the link to the website anyway because it will most like cool off pretty soon

If you are looking for a different kind of wallpapers you could take a look at High Dynamic Range Wallpapers that are offered at HDR Walls. All wallpapers are available in various sizes for many different screen resolutions. The lowest resolution for computers starts at 800x600 and ends at 2560x1600, additional downloads are available for mobile devices like the iPod, iPhone, PSP and several Blackberry devices.

The website currently hosts 478 wallpapers in standard and widescreen format. Maybe you are interested in knowing why HDR images are special ? Here is what the website states:

HDR images are created by taking multiple shots exposed for the highlights, mid-tones and shadows separately and then merged into a single image.

Update: The original website is no longer available. When you open the web address you are taken to a parked page full of advertisement and no useful information. We have removed the link as a consequence from the article.

Since we do not want you to leave the page empty handed, we suggest you take a look at HDR Wallpapers, another website that makes available high quality HDR images that you can use as backgrounds for all your desktop computer systems and mobile devices.

It is a collection of HDR wallpapers on the popular photo hosting website Flickr. All images have a minimum resolution of 1024x768 which means that you may need to edit them if you want to use them as background images for your mobile devices.
