    Your thoughts are welcome, Paul, as that's what this area of the forum is all about

    Put it this way, if it was me I would re arrange the pics so that the eye flows from top left to bottom right. This might be achieved by puting the lighter images in the top left and gradually going darker with the darkest in the bottom right while also keeping a general trend of having the images at the top lighter than the ones at the bottom.

    However its not me and uptake is optional I just thought I would make the suggestion while also not trying to upset anyone.
    I'm not taking it personally at all Paul, I was just interested in your angle.

    We're going to have another fiddle with the banner shortly so I'll bear your thoughts in mind, always takes a while to get these things bang on.

    Thats good I though I had upset you for a while.

    See if you can find some pics of classical figurative paintings that will fill your monitor.
    You will see what I mean about your eye flowing over the painting. Makes you look at them in a different way.

    Nay, I get loads of comments about my designs on here, the negative positive split is about 50/50.

    Figurative art, I guess you're talking about works from the likes of Nicolas Poussin and Édouard Manet (I love Le déjeuner sur l'herbe), I'll have a look and get a feeling for your train of thought. Personally I prefer the likes of M.C. Escher and René Magritte so I have to tame that in anything I design, not really ideal for hi-fi.

    One of my very favourites though is Georges-Pierre Seurat, I adore Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte and it's my wallpaper at work. I recently went to the National Gallery and they had some of Seurat's work on display, but not that one sadly, I believe it's in Chicago currently. However they did have Bathers at Asnières which has a very similar feel albeit that of a warmer brighter day (and the reverse angle of course). Stunning painting, and so huge too, the computer monitor compresses everything these days and it's easily forgotten just how large some of these works of art are.

    Marco, you must know quite a bit about art, what floats your boat?

    I used to go to the National gallery a lot when I studied art, Great Place

    They have a huge painting of Hercules having his 7 locks of hair cut off when he falls alseep after shagging the prostitue. I cant remember who painted it now but thats a great example of the eye flow thing.

    I think I did have a bit too much to drink last night

    I searched the National Gallery's website and the artwork database but couldn't find the painting. Maybe they dont have it on show anymore.

    I'm sure if you spoke to a curator and gave that exact description he'd put the phone down.

    I'm not so sure. Art often depicts life vividly. If the curator panders to snobby collectors and those wishing to be seen in the gallery then he might. True art lovers and artists express themselves...

    I was thinking more of the term "shagging".
