I agree, but as a corollary, the amount of detail and color made it less
usable as a background.  Icons and text tended to get lost in the
detailed areas.  The effect was worse on people whose eyesight isn't
perfect, or on laptop screens that aren't superbright.

That being said, I liked the picture itself just as a thing of beauty.
But I am a HUGE fan of the newer background for Fedora 9, which, while
abstract, is just really attractive.
