    Found a link to this guy's setup in another thread and I really link his backgrounds - anyone know where to get them or anyone have them? I see some other guy in the comments section has asked for a link but has had no luck.

    cheers

    That's a custom wallpaper. Probably a photo taken and used as the wallpaper.

    It's so blurry, how can you tell what it is, to know if you like it?

    It just looks like a photograph. Quit obvious at that.

    It's a landscape with the lights blurred.

    are you serious? you can't look at a picture and tell if you like it? yes it is is abstract and "blurry". It's a landscape shot but very out of focus giving the lights a really nice effect. I guess I just like that effect and the colours.

    to be fair though most wallpapers are just pictures?! Not every wallpaper that is a picture is a custom wallpaper?

    This looks similar to some of the work Mandolux does (although I don't think it is his), you might look through his archive and see if you see something similar to the pic you posted.

    To put it simply.

    The owner of the display took a photo with a camera and used the pic as his desktop wallpaper.

    You might be better off in the other discussion.

    Nice! I also thought Mandolux when I saw it, he's one of the few wallpaper sites that give you both a right and left option, sometimes a middle for those 3 monitor folks.

    I think you'd get a migraine after looking at that for more than 5 minutes. Since it's out of focus and there is no focal point, your brain would try and make one. It would trigger your eye to try and focus on it. You'd get a headache for sure.

    it's a good job that I don't sit starring at my desktop for 5 minutes then! ;)

    but yeah, I can see your point. I think it helps bring windows you have open even more to life, since it's quite an undistracting, plain, soft background
