II like this except I think it would have been better without the Satellite dishes (if that is what they are).
They take away from the sleak lines of the picture. Many of the lines are horizontal, such as the walkways. The satellites stick up too far and just do not fit in this picture.
The satellite dishes don’t bother me as much as the planet in the background. That fad needs to crawl into a deep dark hole and die. Otherwise I like the piece. I like wallpapers where stuff is happening. I’ve got a pretty visual imagination, I like to look at a scene and imagine a story, something happening there. If the satellites and planet were replaced with more structures and bridges and people doing whatever, it would be better. Still, it’s a good find, so I thank the author for posting it.
The tallest doors in the world belong to NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center–each door is 456 feet high, or, over 25% taller than the Statue of Liberty.
