As I said in IRC, I do like very much. I know there may be a desire to make it 
more grey but I like it the way it is now, crisp and catching[1], rather than 
depressing[2]. I'm using it now and you can easily distinguish the background 
from the windows even on the busy areas.

I made a different way of creating the specs which have uneven edges to make 
them realistic[3]. These take the image as a pattern and form circles with the 
pattern as a stroke and add blur. Makes them look like small lenses. Under those 
there are also the ones which are whole circles made from the pattern. 
(unfortunately inkscape has made individual copies of all patterns so the file 
is huge)
