I agree ... it's the one I like least of all the backgrounds submitted,
and it's mine.

On my wife's system there are some banding issues with it, not horribly
bad. A solid background might be better and moved down to the bottom
like Ralf had suggested earlier.

Been using a widescreen version of it as my background, it works well by
being somewhat interesting, but not distracting from the icons & text on
the desktop. Not happy about the shape of the 5, maybe it would be
better without it, or at least in a different font.

Made mockup 5 based on mockup 4 moving the logo & image bar down to the
bottom 1/4 and used a darker section of the cloud image. Similar banding
issues on 4 & 5 on my wife's system.
