We are looking for artwork that relates to Fedora 11's codename, Leonidas. A lion being a king (as Leonidas was) or images depicting Greek scenery fit in with the release codename. I'm not sure how wood fits in, but maybe you have an idea?

Other than that we have an explicit policy to not ship wallpapers with the Fedora logo in them. This not only makes our wallpapers more generally useful, but also lessens the complications for folks who repackage Fedora under a different name (eg unofficial spins). 

I think, personally, the wallpaper would look a lot nicer without the Fedora logo. It looks like something I might like to use as my own wallpaper, actually, if it didn't have the logo superimposed on it. :) I like how the wood gives the wallpaper a natural feel and how the lighting suggests a stage. Did you use a texture/pattern to create it?
