If you could do something like Dawn of Ubuntu it'd be great :) .
I don't exactly know what Malta's geography is like though :o .

Here is a gnome example, the scenery is good but it would be better if it was ubuntu. :)

Why Malta? I think something from Africa would make more sense - it would to me anyway.

That's because Ubuntu doesn't like to include logos in its backgrounds.

Exactly, we don't need to have Ubuntu written all over the wallpaper, we just know it's Ubuntu :) .

Seancarlgrech, the pictures are really nice, but I'd recomend you take pictures where there aren't boats. Not that I don't like boats but that I don't see how that'd really be Ubuntu-y.
Besides that, your pictures are really nice :) .
