    I'm the sort of person who spends a lot of time finding the perfect wallpaper for my computer, only to stick with it for months until I feel ready for a change. But because of my pickiness, getting my hands on really good ones is always a chore :oops:

    I'm currently rotating through a series of really well-done low-poly landscapes by Tim Reynolds. My current wallpaper (in this screenshot, on my laptop) is this:

    Anyway, what do you all have on deck? I'm curious :D (And want more cool wallpapers, of course)

    I used to be like that, now I'm the exact opposite. I get wallpapers from http://www.interfacelift.com/, mainly the city skylines and well-photographed wonders of nature. Those 270 pictures (up to now) cycle every 30 minutes.

    I used to have a whole bunch of carefully selected wallpapers in rotation but now, even with dual monitors, I never see the desktop. As soon as I login I immediately open the web browsers and other programs and they stay open until I shut the machine down.

    I also don't see my desktop that often or just a part of it. Mostly webbrowser, TV show or movie or gaming.

    Yes indeed, it's mainly "Enigma" which I slightly customized. I believe it's a standard skin included with the default setup.
    I edited in the HDD stuff from another skin "HDDstatus", which I modified to fit in with the design.

    The bar on the right is AIDA64's SensorPanel. The bar behind it isn't blurry like the Enigma Sidebar but I've added a transparant blur sidebar behind that one to also make it blurry.

    I never see the desktop itself, but have the same synced folder full of images set to rotate for both the wallpaper and the lockscreen slideshow for my desktop & laptop.

    Oh no, I can only wish that I was that good at digital illustration :oops:

    These were made by Timothy Reynolds, who's made a lot of really interesting stuff, actually.

    Decided it was time for a change (the Noctua one above has graced my desktop for over a month)
