I know Mola's images, we talked about them on IRC before he mailed to

You are right, Mola's colors are too saturated and won't work for an
usable desktop (and also don't look very natural either).
I tried a quick trick starting from one of Mola's images (attached):
decreased the saturation and increased the lightness a bit, the colors
are closer to what I have in mind (but I should have applied the
lightness/saturation operation separately to the grass and sky).
The hard reality is an wallpaper like this will be inevitably compared
with the default Windows XP wallpaper, which had set a standard in
people's minds: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Windows_XP_SP3.png
But as I said in my previous mail, those are small details we can worry
