Looks great Ken! Are you aware that your text slants slightly? Apart from that, I can't think of any way to improve it.
Yeah! I'm changing it tomorrow. Can you suggest a visual effect, style or font, for the text? Would also like to hear other suggestions such as background.

Are the lines behind the text a motion blur layer? I think it would be better if it was symmetrical, just make a guide line at 50% horizontal, cut half of it out, duplicate the other half, flip it and move it. I wouldn't put any more visual effects on it, you don't want to take the focus away from the centre I really like the open space in it, I don't like complicated wallpapers, icons tend to get lost in the image if there's too much going on. And I also think the font is great

Ghastly thing?

@Influx, my opinion of course, I think a dark background would work better, such as metallic or black carbon, perhaps a hex grid.

For those that don't have the luxury of having a graphics package like PhotoShop or Corel. Here's a great bit of software that allows you to convert a conventional photo into a painting and it's free. FotoSketcher
It's really easy to use and requires no graphic knowledge and can produce some great results. You can turn some of your downloaded wallpapers into a painting in just a few clicks.

If your PC is a bit on the small side it might take a while to render especially if you are using a large image, but it's worth the wait .... enjoy

Custom Made Wallpapers (Multi Screen)
I know there's already a custom wallpaper thread but most of those are are for single monitors. Since there are alot of people that use and need dual monitor wallpaper I thought a new thread was in order. So c'mon all you talented designers, let's see your eye candy for multi screens! :D
Customization
Have your wallpapers custom made/modified here.
Thought I would give the original thread a break and the opportunity to clean up. This will allow you to just post your custom papers there, and maybe keep it clean from request and multiple posts. (Just an idea) Mods please remove this if you feel it unnessasary. Otherwise, guys please post...
