As many of you may know, Ubuntu has a Photography/Artwork contest for the Wallpapers for each new release. 14.10 is the next version released to the Ubuntu world, known as Utopic Unicorn, and the wallpaper contest has just come to a completion. Here are 20 of my Favorites.
If you like any of the below photographs, you can click on the image and it will take you to the Flickr page for that image where you can download full-size copies. Also, make sure to comment down below with which ones you liked and if there any others you have seen elsewhere (DeviantArt or the like!)

Hey, you forgot me!
Oh yeah, here are two extra backgrounds. They are a bit more abstract, but still very interesting and worthy!
Low Poly Experiment by Fin Moorhouse

I had a really hard time picking out just 20, especially seeing as there’s over 200 photographs submitted in the Vanilla Ubuntu submissions on Flickr alone. This doesn’t factor in any backgrounds from the Ubuntu GNOME 14.10 contest or from other sources. Hope you guys liked these! Happy Utopic Unicorniness!
