Back when you could still theme OS X, I used this one on my laptop, combined with a fantastic wooden theme. It looked ridiculously awesome, and I'm still pissed off at Apple for shutting me down:

There's something about that color scheme that just looks outstanding on this laptop's LCD.

Zoom in on it, it really looks good.

I also use a lot of my buddy Clydefrog's fractals for backgrounds... http://clydefrogda.deviantart.com/ga...

Here's a few that appeal to me (with high-rez ones for download in the gallery):

I have a bunch I rotate, including this one:

Not huge, but scales OK.

I've been using that one of them looking up at the stars for it feels like a couple of years now. The others are all new to me though, and awesome.

Thank you sir. Can always use more Calvin and Hobbes.

So many white backgrounds. Are there people that actually like white desktop backgrounds?

Yeah, there are a lot of those with great themes that I would use... if it weren't for the blinding background.

GWJ is fond of it.

This has been my laptop desktop for a few years:

It's Endeavour docked at the space station with the Sun behind.

I can't find the other threads. Here's one that was linked to the last go-round:

That's impressive. I love looking at photo-realistic illustrations.

From this Reddit thread:

(that's the hi-res version, 2767x2042, better than the leading link in the source thread. I pulled it from a comment much further down.)

Who comes into this thread and doesn't expect it to have large images embedded?

All GoT images by Cyril Tahmassebi.

I'm guessing most people do, seeing as how there is only one browser-choking image of that size posted in the thread. Links and thumbnails exist for a good reason.

This first one I made in Photoshop entirely from scratch:

All full size images are 1920x1080

These three are ones that I made from multiple wallpapers, remixed and manipulated.

So you really got tired of all that green, I take it?

Here, Elycion, just for you:
