2 cents from the peanut gallery ...

As someone with the eye of a user who stares at a monitor most of
every day I find jayme's the most appealing and easy on my eyes. The
colors and textures are wonderful. I find it both mystical and
majestic. To my mind the calmness projected from the statue in the
midst of the turbulence around it makes a nice contrast making me want
to stare at it and think about it. It is very nice and I suspect will
be my wallpaper for F12, it is already my wallpaper on my current
Fedora desktop.
