I just submitted a couple of wallpapers for consideration, I thought
maybe I should send an email so folks can comment or whatever you do
with this sort of thing. 

The first one is: 
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=4699  an the 2nd one is:

The first one has a textured (pattern) and the 2nd one is the same
thing with the pattern made 'invisible'. I created a separate jpg of
both. The Gimp xcf file is 14.5mb, and I can easily make
minor modifications. They're both the same size as the 'default'
wallpaper in CentOS 5.5, i.e. 2048 x 1536 px.

I'm not a pro, but I rather like the result. I
even had it sitting on my LMDE desktop for a few hours (on a 19"
1440x900 Acer lcd monitor).
