Extremely crisp, clear, high-resolution photography/wallpapers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've already read the stickied websites for some of the wallpapers, but none quite match what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for photography of anything that is really brilliant. Anything that is extremely crisp, clear, and high resolution. I'm talking about taken from the best cameras in the world and maybe even touched up in Photoshop just to make it that much better. I'm looking for models, architecture, vehicles, nature, anything that's simply stunning.

I realize some sites might not be appropriate to mention on here, so you can simply private message me the website. Yes, I'm talking about 18+ type photos as well. Anything that's really beautiful, despite being uhh..mature or w/e. Don't get me wrong though. I'm not looking for hardcore stuff. Just anything that is slightly uhh..unnacceptable is fine. Anything that could even by considered pornography is not wanted. Anything that is below the belt nudity is not wanted.

Here's an example of what I'm looking for. Yes, I realize many of you will probably say, "that's garbage. That's photoshop trash. That's blah blah blah" (and I'm guessing this simply because I know how some boys tend to be on here), but this is what I want and what I'm looking for. If you can hint me to any large websites that have lots of these types of photos, that'd be awesome.

I'm also looking for fashion, glamour, and typical modeling type pictures. Again, I want them to be smooth, very intriguing, nice..possibly even have a sort of...I don't know how to explain it..but take a look at some of the pictures I'm aiming at and see if you can help me.

The first is my view of a crisp, clear, high res image. The ones thereafter are more model type photoshots, glamour shots etc, but they all remain smooth clear etc.

I have a HUGE thing for color. Anything that has very vivid DEEP rich THICK color I love. I especially love DEEP THICK blacks that aren't just a smeer of black on the screen. I want to see detail even in BLACKS. I want REAAALLY deep blacks omg, I cannot express how much I love seeing beautifully colored wallpapers or photography.

Below this is an image that kinda' irritates me. The picture starts all right, but then gets blurry towards the bottom. I like to see each strand of hair. Each detail. While the overall wallpaper is okay, I'm hoping to find an entire wallpaper this isn't half-ass. I want beautiful stunning wallpapers or photos or images/whatever. I know the photographer may have blurred her hair on purpose to draw attention to her face or w/e techniques he saw fit, but that's not what I'm looking for. I want the whole thing to be clear, crisp, non-blurred unless the blur is for motion effect (like racecar wallpapers where the background is blurred from speed, but the car is still and in perfect clarity).

I am recently on a similar mission as you looking for HIGH resolution pictures for my background.

Just got my 3 monitor eyefinity setup going and need 5760 x 1080 or higher resolution photos, but have not found that many sites online.

What resolution are you looking for?

For wallpapers 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 or some ratio larger than that would be fine.

For Photography I don't care what the resolution is so long as it's high grade, crisp, clear, colorful, beatuiful etc.. It doesn't even have to be a wallpaper. It could just be an image.

Oh hey you're back biggrin.gif

My advice to you is to go on photography forums, browse through, and ask the artists if you can use their images as a background. Looking at your pictures, I think the Glamour and Nude section on POTN would serve you well (I hear all of you giggling behind your monitors!)

I am constantly searching for slick wallpapers and for a dark/clean setup this is my fave.

Think it was originally 1280x1024 but I edited it to fit my reso without stretching 1920x1200

Em, how about this.

^ More sites have been added to the list, FYI, you might find what you're looking for.

One the best sites I've been to recently is goodfon.com. Well organized, high res images.

I have two blogs dedicated to 5760x1080 wallpaper. Images are mostly cropped/scaled/noised, but some are crisp. I just love the subject matter. wink.gif
http://screenbreasts.blogspot.com/ is very tame PG-13?
http://5760x1080.blogspot.com/ is maybe rated R.

cheers
