All my background pix are way too location specific for MX, but I thought you'd get a kick out of this one. The luxurious penthouse offices of MX! Haha. Complete with the old-school logo on the building cornice sign.

Did you make that pic yourself?
That statue of Pinocchio is right outside my office. While I was taking the pic, security approached me (they didn't recognize me) and told me pictures were not allowed. I found it so ironic that I couldn't take a picture of a statue the artist stole from Disney. Haha.

Great job. Cool wallpaper.
Thanks. This is the fave background of my colleagues at the office -- mostly because I took it with my phone. In post processing, I added the more painterly aspects to give it an Ansel Adams sort of look. But again, it's way too location specific for distribution. You kinda have to know it's a US National Monument.

Well, why not just post it on the Community page anyway, for consideration?

It might be chosen or not for MX18; but your pic might appeal to some members.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll do that. I was just going by what was chosen in the past. The idea is to move the MX product forward. So, it's best to target the primary demographic. I don't feel my backgrounds fit that.
What has struck me most, tho, is the few wallpaper options for children that are included with the distro. (not that I have any that are suitable - lol)
Few, if any distros have these, so it's not an MX specific thing.

Just a curious observation. I wonder how we solve that?

People make submissions! We probably would not try for wallpapers for young children, but maybe teenagers (keeping possible gender differences in mind)? Your submission is a great start.

I have a guy's named Charlie Henson's permission to link his entire wallpaper collection from opendesktop.org here for you all. If you go herehttps://www.opendesktop.org/p/1255841/ you'll see that I have gotten his permission and if you go herehttps://www.opendesktop.org/u/charlie-henson/ you'll find entire collection. I have used his work on and off for a long time. I have already made some mx linux wallpapers from his work but when I try to upload them I it says wrong password. How can I have the wrong password when I am logged in right now. very weird and confusing.
