Re: Fedora Infinity Update



Very good revision here. There are some very strong leading lines all over the place that all converge towards where the ghosted lines join and lead you up. The limited purple as well as the star field stuff help highlight the area.

Yeh, Nicolas' point is well-taken, I tried this:

So the blue is much darker and stronger and the purple area much more
limited. (Other variants are in that dir too if you want to poke around,
with the gimp XCF files... Martin's yellow version inspired me to play
around in the gimp :) )

Yep, we definitely still need a strong blue presence!
