    VERY sweet series! Another of the few where I will likely download the entire set. Thanks for this cool find, Asian Angel.

    This is the only bad thing having 3 1920*1080 monitors, most wallpapers is for single monitor and to low resolution to crop to multi monitor…

    Great, but they remind me too much of Vista. So no, these are not finding a place on my desktop.

    Thanks HTG for great imges and especially thanks to Asian Angel. You are awesome as usual!
    Only one suggestion – can you start to share all images in zip file for example?
    Its more useful to download all images at once against to click per single image.

    I love almost all the wallpaper collections. I like the single column format much better than the current format. I batch resize the wallpapers with Faststone Image Viewer to my 1680×1050 screen size and crop most of them that the crop does not kill the picture then use the wallpaper as desktop themes. I now have over 2000 wallpapers that rotate every 30 minutes. My desktop never gets boring.
