It's been posted once, but check out the papers at http://www.racerxonline.com/wallpaper/supercross-preseason-practice-wallpaper.aspx :

I'd like your opinions, not that they'll necessarily determine anything, about which of the wallpaper styles you like best, please.

I didn't care for any of those, just a picture with a RacerX logo in the corner would be better. Definitely a case of to much spice has spoiled the stew, try a simple black border.The pictures themselves are a bit over zoomed. Of course i guess a lot of folks like these types of pictures, but I never understood why some photo guys do every single pic like that.The RV pics with two bikes are better because it at least shows a little track in there. That's just my humble opinion that doesn't count, lol.

The film strip is always cool! I also liked the style with the white border and then the lines start to fade in towards the photo. like this one...

I'm with Crash on this one. For an action shot there needs to be a little landscape in there for frame of reference. Still shots can be zoomed in nice and tight though. As for border effect I just don't care either way.

You're going overboard with the borders. Especially the ones that transition from photo > border > white.

This is my favorite:

It doesn't need the outer white border - that looks cool as a gallery page, but makes for a shitty desktop.

Wallpaper is never spam but I like the wallpapers that are just the pictures -- no logos or film strips, just pics.

Yeah, well, you're not going to get rid of logos...

If you consolidate the border and integrate the logo into it, both the photo and logo will have more "pop"

You have a cluster-fuck of competing elements in some of those.

That's true, but at the same time, a concern is that they are high-res enough that they can be printed, and I (and many other photo guys) have had people steal our photos when they were lower-res than this and sell prints on eBay and the like.

overzoomed is true

Don't get me me wrong for zoomers they are top notch, I like the RacerX logo on there also, I tell everyone at work Racer is Malcolm's Brother....

Then maybe be more creative with the logo placement:

What about making them higher res and then putting the logo at the bottom really small so it does not show up on a computer screen. Nothing against vital, I just don't like logos (and no, I would not try to steal your work and sell it on ebay).

I like wallpapers that have either large borders, or areas of fairly solid colors or tones.

Too much detail and I can't find the icons on my messy desktop.

Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.
