    Post your computer background suitable pictures
    If you are like me, you like to occasionally change the background on your computer to one of the images you have recently shot. It's great when they have that "new photo" smell. Most of you have noticed that there are some pictures that seem to work better as a background, than other images that are superior shots. I believe there are several reasons for this. One is that there are going to be shortcut icons covering some of the photo. This means that it needs to be a strong image that doesn't require you to have to look at a lot of small details in all parts of the image. I also find that large sections of bland detail on the left of the image works well, again to accommodate the icons.

    I did a quick search, and didn't see any other threads that address this subject, so I thought I'd start one. If there is one out there I missed, mods feel free to delete this one.

    I'll get the ball rolling with this recent picture. I've posted it elsewhere on the forum, but it makes a nice background for my tastes. I suppose it helps that I don't have a ton of icons on my computer, so the main item of interest in this is clear of obstructions.

    Same background in use for some time. Prefer darker images as most applications are white. With my OS no icons show on desktop.
