Recently I saw a comment by Cavedog_pdx where he said that he has a picture of Yinsh from the geek as a wallpaper. I liked the picture he was talking about very much and saw that it had all the right qualities to make a good wallpaper for on the virtual desktop:
- beautiful, good composition
- good size and quality
- it doesn't make the desktop look full

I wonder if there are more pictures like this. If you know of more wallpaper-fit images on the geek, please add them.

I'm using this one as my wallpaper right now. It's a little loud, but otherwise a beautiful pic.

Before the Yinsh wallpaper I used this one. I got more looks of "oh how nerdy!" than I did of "oh that's cool! What is it?" though.

I'm somewhat partial to this one (since I took the pic). It's a bit busy for a desktop, but it's still fun. (Oh..I also took the Web of Power pic...glad folks are enjoying it). You can find a few more on my blog www.netfrantz.com , but you'll have to wade through some other personal (vacation, kid) stuff.

Here's another I took that I like. This one is way too small to use "stretched," but see my comment below if you really want them.

I find a lot of board games to be quite beautiful! It's one of the things that initially attracts me to a game.

Here's my current desktop image. I took this photo, along with a couple of the others on this list. (Thanks for the compliments!)

I really like the blue background image on the left side of the Goa board, along with all the browns and reds.

I've got a whole folder full of shots that come up as a "screensaver" slide show on my Mac.

And I put together a 2004 calendar of game shots that I have hanging in my office. Each month is printed on two 11 x 17 sheets of paper. But it doesn't look too bad, considering. Maybe I'll make a file available if I do another one for '05.

I found this one. It's 2048x1536 pixels and looks great on the desktop. Perhaps it's a bit busy but the colours and lighting are very good.

After finding some great images for wallpapers, I thought what a great idea for a geeklist. Glad I looked around before starting a new one. Anyway, Pirate's Cove has several fantastic images that are huge and detailed. This is just one of them.

I don't mean to toot my own horn, but here are a few images that are on my rotating desktop pic schedule. The dinosaur minis look pretty cool blown up to desktop size.

Just contact me if you'd like any of my images sized to your own desktop.

As submitted, they are 1680 x 1050, the ratio of a 20" Apple Cinema Display. In this one, I kind of enjoy the clarity, how you can see the CMYK dot pattern in the "Giles' Apartment" box. The depth of field came out much better than I ever hoped, present but not overwhelming.
