Hello,
I've mentioned this before, but now have changed the desktop with a link to www.originaltrilogy.com

Please view it at-

Jay, don't know if you got my email. Can you give this wallpaper idea some publicity like tell theforce.net about it? Josh over there never replies. He may respond if you forward it.

Why not make it your official desktop.

Thanks!

If you don't mind me telling you what I think, I'll comment. But if you do, don't read on I think it is a cool concept, it is. But, w/ a few tweaks, it could be better, like take your name off of it, or at least make it a little smaller and flat on the bottom so it wouldn't show every time you are on the desktop (it would be behind the start menu and task bar for most folks.) Next, a more high res photo for the wine bottles would be nice, thos do look ratheer fake and kind of take away from the picture's appeal. Also, the font is weird; kind of too big and blocky, it really stands out. Last, the white background is a little much, it reminds me a lot of an error message hat pops up when internet sites r down or don't exist. That was just a little constructive crtitcism, you don't have to think about it if you don't want to, I'm just trying to help. BTW, welcome to the forums!!

im with StarTrooper on two of those comments...
definatly make it a higher rez picture... and i think taking the name off would make it more professional...

however i think the font is killer... it looks so professional and matches the font for rest of the ad...

Allow me to fix my comment, I meant the fonts below the bottles, they are too much against the shadows. which are a nice touch.

Maybe. If I had a copy of the editable version, I could play with it & see what looks best. But I don't think he would like that since it is his project.

Thanks for your suggestions guys. I tried putting the 80s etc on the top, but it ruins the overall balance.

A black background with white text may be better. But the bottles are dark, so they'll have to be glowing.

hope this helps? Just displaying the picture for all to see and provide input. I think it looks good the way I saw it when arriving at the site.
