Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.

Maybe it's me but I am tired of landscape backrounds. It could be that generic landscape for XP finally rotted my brain.
I do have to say, that's a really nice background iKitten. I like how the river draws me into the mountains and the mountains draw my eyes to the rest of the desktop. Good choice!!

I wanted a background with soft, neutral colors this time, and I wanted a theme that would fit my architecture major, although this one has traces of engineering as well.

I found some pics off of pixelgirlpresents, and photoshopped them together, while adding my own 3-D effects that I love, of course.
Credits to the makers of the original backgrounds, they're really good.
