Yet another arch linux wallpaper

Hi all,

Here is yet another arch linux wallpaper:
archlinux_showroom-thumb.png

The intent was to create a showroom/art gallery effect. (I'm a better engineer than I am an artist.) The original inkscape file can be found here. Feel free to tweak it, offer suggestions on how to improve it, or post your own variation.

The one thing that I can't quite seem to get right is the effect of a light shining on a wall. I know the shape should be roughly parabolic and the intensity should follow an inverse square law. I tried to approximate this with a radial gradient, but as you can see its not quite right.

Here is another wallpaper:
archlinux_rocks-thumb.png.

This time I cheated and used one of my photos from a Backpacking trip in Jasper NP for the background. The original inkscape file is here. As always, feel free to tweak, enhance, and post your own variation.

Re: Yet another arch linux wallpaper

Here is something a little closer to what I was trying to do originally:
