This wall paper is for dual 19inch widescreen LCD extended dektop :D . It was originally 180 degree view, I cut the centre part to make a wallpaper. I made this image by connecting 8 photos that I took in Beijing. There is a blur area on the left, because the original res is too big (16940 X 2588 pixels), and my monitor is too small (19inch), I couldn't see that until I did all the color correction and merging :( ... and I am just too lazy to go back to fix it...

I'd put it on my monitor but it would bug me that spanning across my dual 22" I would be constantly reminded that the monitors are two and not one. Shame..... shame... Oh for a 44" monitor ;-)
Size isn't everything though.
grrr

Thanks for replying. I agree that the extended desktop is not handy at all :( , especially you have to go far far away from the start menu to the task bar... but just you can have super wide angle wallpaper, and it really make you feeling good! :D
