I too feel the same. The clouds do obscure this a little. I do think it’s good to have the clouds in this scene as you get the colouration on them but the density does need to be lowered by around 70%. Apart from that though, this high on my list of favourite pictures. Good job.
I wish there was a cloud-free version of this scene. I can’t see the moon in Moondance. It would have been a breathtaking scene if the sky weren’t obscured 🙁
Thank you so much for the dual monitor. This is one of my favorites and I was sad there was not a dual or triple to show its glory.
The multi-screen is awesome Ryan! Congrats on the new ‘puter. Question though: what are you using all the power on Shadowfax to do if you are doing your renders on Bucephalus? I would have thought you would use Bucephalus to develop new scenes and render them on Shadowfax… Just curious. =)
Would love to see multi-screen renders of two 2014 abstracts, namely Quarternion and Infinitesimal (2014). I’m a huge fan of your abstracts, and use them most often for long-term wallpapers.
Many thanks in advance for considering the request.
Hey Ryan. Your last two posts the “split files” are missing with the tri-screen.
Us Mac users need split files. Please post soon.
You should know by know that I almost always forget to upload at least one resolution. The Triple 1080p should be there. I won’t be getting rid of them!!
My ‘Usual’ resolution is not here, @ 5760 x 1080. The closest ones don’t fit. Is this the way it’s being done now ? At least with the 16:10 I can see some of the water.
Sorry about the wait!
Would love a dual screen version
I’m someone who only likes like 40% of Ryans work. most of the renders aren’t to my taste at all. this one however is a masterpiece.
This is absolutely amazing, involving the night and passionate colors such as blue, purple and red.
During the last full moon, I was out late to take pictures of the sky and moon. I live on Hawai’i Island, and actually, the sky looked so much like Moondance that I decided to just download it and go to bed! Like real life-only better!
Hi Ryan, any chance of multiple monitor renders of this one?
Finally have one to replace my current one “Night Fall”.
Would love to have this in 5760 x 1080!
I quite like the pastel clouds. There’s a sort of tranquil nature about how the clouds and sky interact with the rest of the piece. Well done Ryan.
Adding to recent comments, I too love this piece. For me a lot of the wonderful “atmosphere” is created by the idea that you don’t know what is making all those colors in the clouds (though the title suggests what it is). I actually like the “painterly” effect of the clouds and it doesn’t really bother me much at all that the trees, etc. are a lot more detailed.
I love the idea of having the moonlight glow in the water, and the colors of the evening sky. I must agree that the cloud colors and shapes do seem pretty off and could use some editing.
I also think it would be a fantastic addition if the moon were to peak a little from behind the clouds. Very impressive work as always Ryan.
Really like this and I’m using it for my current background, but I have to agree with the comments about the clouds. Especially at the very top of the image where the clouds are picking up the moonlight I find the clouds to be very cookie-cutter looking. May be an altered version with less clouds could be doable? 🙂 Very very much like the colors and that turtle coming ashore with what almost looks like bioluminescence on its back.
I would also love an explanation behind the idea of having those bright flashes of color that almost look like explosions in the clouds; quite cool.
But I do have to agree that the clouds looks abstract where as the plants and water looks like your typical work.
Ryan and beachscapes are like peas & carrots.
Gives me a Peaceful Easy Feeling – I really like the turtle!
Love it! Love the color, shading, lighting… ALL GOOD!!
This is amazing! Really hoping a dual variant comes out soon so I can use it!
I love this. Favorite colors… night scene… awesome little turtle.
I hope your family is doing well – thank you for making another new beauty to use as my work desktop.

Youve done better. This one looks like the clouds are just paint spattered on a background. They are very flat.
I changed my desktop to this immediately. I gave it an eight because I feel like the clouds lack volume. They look a bit more like paint splotches than like clouds and it draws my attention whenever I look closely. Otherwise though I think it’s amazing. Night scenes are my favorites.
I did follow the WIP, and I love what you’ve done with it- the mysterious lighting of the clouds (“coming exactly from what?” we ask), the lighting of the shore (bioluminescence?), the unknown purple glow on the horizon on the right- magical! ( she was there before, but now I see the turtle!)
A beautiful and dreamy effect. Thank you!
I love it!! Pretty please can it be a dual wallpaper soon? 🙂
This should be enjoyed while listening to Michael Buble’ sing Moon Dance.
I love it! does it take place on a world with multiple suns?
