This is based on a picture that my friend Marie took while she was visiting Seattle over Christmas break. The biggest problem with the picture was that there were powerlines crossing in front of the Space Needle! So using the power of Paint.NET and its Clone Stamp tool, I removed the two that were the worst offenders. Then I added some glow with a 2nd layer using Gaussian Blur and the Overlay blend mode. Cropped it, resized it, and now it's a high-res widescreen wallpaper.
