"Neat" Pictures

Recommended Posts

Enough of the non-painting pictures are artificial ('Shops, etc., and some thoroughly synthetic digitally-created things) that to me it seems overly restrictive to hold paintings out.

So, can we officially include "neat paintings" in the "neat pictures" category? I was operating on the basis of photos of real things. Paintings can be of anything the artist imagines.

 

Interestingly enough, the very first post in his thread sets a guideline of sorts...

They may be pics of good-looking anime girls

 

Hm. It looks like pictures depicting the artificial have been welcome since its inception.

About fully synthetic images....

 

This one, BTW, is a fully synthetic image based on photometric data of this object and published transformations for B-V color to RGB triplet values, and a model of the "seeing disk" (how a point source on the sky gets transformed into something like a photograph seen through atmospheric distortion and the human visual apparatus). 

 

There's some mistakes in it that I haven't bothered to fix.  My avatar is a highly reduced version of this image.

What you need to understand is that I don't care about the game. I don't care about the rules. I don't even care about these pathetic souls you keep locked away as a barrier to the prize.

Catamaran! Very efficient design. High available deck area and righting moment for low wetted area and good length-to-beam ratio. Also, everything in that picture is gorgeous. I wonder if the aurora look that bright to the naked eye?
