Ok so I was browsing walls and came across this one of a wheat field. So I had to try it out. Even colorized my transparent panel for this one. I heavily edit GTK theme as far as color goes. Well here you go. :)

@ Colyn,

Did you take that photo of the anemone and clown-fish? It is beautiful, something I long to see again.

Hi

Yes I shot the photo. The Aquarium is located at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. I plan to go back this weekend to see if I can get more shots..

They are hard to capture since they swim so fast..

@ oscar799 >> the wallpaper made me think of the Cirque du Soleil, an amazing performance I have seen thrice.

@ colyn >> did you use a polarizing lens to avoid glare off of the glass? I guess it was all ambient lighting, that or you had an off camera flash.

No I didn't use a polarizer. I positioned myself at a slight angle to avoid reflections from south lighting during the late morning. Any other time of the day I would have had to use a polarizer. especially late afternoon..

I may try polarizing this weekend to see if I get a different look though..

It is interesting the way we create complex and powerful tools to save us
from the complex and powerful tools we created previously.

Interesting conky position, I never see many screenshots with the conky down the middle. Suits the wallpaper, do you know her ?
