Re: revised f9 wallpaper

I've received a few complaints about the f9 wallpaper (it seems the sulphur is really unpopular) and I've been experimenting with alternative designs for it but trying to keep the same look and feel of the rest of the artwork.

I saw my share of complaints too, both on my blog and on fedoraforum, interesting how those complains happened only after Round 3.

However, and *someone* has to say this, I am concerned about the mixed message we are sending around, I will serve a quote I just read (I was offline over the week-end, so I saw it at about the same time with this thread, even it is a couple of days older), I think you will find this quote familiar:

"As I said earlier (if anyone disagrees please speak up, maybe I am alone in this) I think it's far too late in the F9 process to start changing the graphics - we've already completed all of the core graphics for F9 and had them checked into rawhide. This week was the devel freeze for F9 IIRC and it will already be a scramble to get revisions into what we have in as we get feedback on it. To bring a new idea/concept into what we already have I think is too disruptive at this point in the release process, but refinements on the current designs are certainly welcomed."

This is one of the ideas I've been working with - http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/temp/0001.png

Do you think it's a good direction? Do you have ideas on how to bling it up?

Too bad I was offline and had no chance to speak earlier (all the /temp/ images are gone by now). The version you have blogged about is nice, it have a similar "soft" feeling with Infinity, so I expect people who liked Infinity would like it too. As for the particular implementation, what is the plan for the wide-screen option, add on the edges or just cut from the bottom? (that would work too)
