Not sure if this is a good idea but http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Picture_of_the_day contains lots of very nice pictures.

@Pinheiro: I noticed that the rules of the contest don't force you to be the author. Is this intended ? Is it ok if somebody send some wallpapers under Creative Commons, found on flickr ?

This contest is a great idea, I think there should be an story on the "dot" about this :)

pinheiro said...

shamaz yes you dont have to be the actual creator of the image, but expressed aproval from the artist is required.
so creativecomons is agood satrting point but we do require the artist to be aware of this utilization and what it meens..

Despite this nice idea of a contest, I really would love to see the wallpaper of the green meadow/with blue sky that can be seen on the "form-factors" screencast where the analog clock is introduced! I have not seen a better wallpaper in the last month!

Yes, I agree with the Anonymous above... That wallpaper of the green meadow and the blue clouded sky is amazing and its my wallpaper right now!

The contrast of the two colors is very pleasing to the eye and seems calming. I like it!! Oh well, even if its not the kde4 default, it will be my default!

Is there a place where we can see the entries that people have posted? Or is it a blind submission?

I will give you my opinion in your wallpapers.

First of all, I'm a fan of blue and I think blue is calm comparing to green or other colors.

I don't like this, I don't like the eddy, the contrast is not bad but is not calm and is not the style I would use for a wallpaper.

This one looks more calm but I don't like it much, it gives me a hot sensation for some reason and I don't like hot.

I definitely like this one and I would like to use it as a wallpaper, I like the blue and I love the contrast but I find a bit dirty compared to the other one, I prefer the clean one, not bad thought, I love the colors on this one!
http://www.nuno-icons.com/images/estilo/wall/398444173_8bb665f7e7_o.jpg

I like the colors and contrast but I'm not a fan of green, I find it a bit odd too.
http://www.nuno-icons.com/images/estilo/wall/425626483_f66ed5e3d2_occ%20copleys.jpg

I love this one, it's very clean and I love the colors, contrast and everything in this picture, I think it's my favorite.
http://www.nuno-icons.com/images/estilo/wall/65114074_3a1ea65c47_occthecodepoet.jpg

Too much contrast I think, I won't use this for my wallpaper, but I think green wallpapers combine well with black objects and windows on top of it.

This is blue, but I don't like this one.

I hope you will take my comment as feedback, nice work thought!

Keep up the good work!

I don't like this one, is too colorful and unprofessional for some reason.
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Polarlicht_2.jpg

I prefer wallpapers like this one.
http://www.nuno-icons.com/images/estilo/wall/65114074_3a1ea65c47_occthecodepoet.jpg

I'm also fan of dark but not exaggeratedly dark but good contrast and tones of blue and black wallpapers.

I like this one, it looks clean and peaceful to my eye, wallpapers like this would be nice for people that likes peaceful wallpapers, I also see it would be nice to have black applets and windows on top of it, it would combine nicely and it will make good contrast.

I think daylight wallpapers like that one with high black contrast applets looks cool
