Yeah the colour ramp didn't really work. If you have a better suggestion I can make a updated image. Have been thinking about the legend, will update once I have a good plan. (That will work with QGIS 2.0)

comment Is it possible to use DotNet to show a QGIS map?
You could try code.google.com/p/qt4dotnet however I'm not sure how far you will get with it and it isn't going to be supported. I would recommend Python if you don't want to try C++ just yet.
