    MPC #156 - Custom Composition Nov 3-28

    Topic: login/desktop background images

    It's been habit for me to lock my machine when stepping away, especially when at work. So I'm always looking for that perfect lock screen image. Custom wallpapers are cool too, but they are frequently buried by open windows.

    So this MPC is open to any photo that composes well as a desktop background or login screen. Usually that means leaving a lot of empty space (or at least less-busy) on the left-third. Instead of uploading the photo as-is, set it to your background or login screen and post a screenshot of that. Bonus points for creative icon arrangements.

    RULES:

    1. Photos must be taken within the time period of the contest.
    2. You may submit 3 photos during the competition.
    3. The contest moderator will choose 5 (or 6) photos to be voted on.
    4. The winner will get a happy feeling in his/her pants. (That is a rule by the way, not an option.)
    5. In the event of a tie, the contest moderator will have the deciding vote.
    6. Winner will be the contest starter/moderator for the next comp.
    7. The winner has 3 days to start a new contest or 2nd place becomes the new winner.
    8. And have fun.

    This is a fun one!

    ETA: The wallpaper pictures still have to be taken within the timeframe, right?

    I have dual 1280x1024 monitors which accounts for the more square shape of my desktop images.

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.
