You're right, sorry. I updated the original post with a correct link.
Also, I made a new ice-only version with updated colors and ice shapes from the latest version.

Some feedback (the selected one was the ice version):
This is a really good wallpaper and really follows the Plasma style. The part where it does not work really well in my opinion is the breach itself: I don't really like the blue gradient that gets lighter the more we go deep, and I feel that in the current form, it would be better to make a wallpaper that's a bit more flat.
This wallpaper looks amazing. Though my only issue with it is that it looks a tad bit flat. Next had more of an emphasised gloss to the ice, which I really like, meanwhile this wallpaper just feels kinda flat (excluding the deeper blues).

I can see the intent now, but to me there is something missing to give 'the breach' a true sense of depth. I had to peer at it for a few seconds before I realised whet it represented.

Personally I'd like a bit more color, which is why I requested a version with some green grass. This wallpaper has the exact same color palette as Ice Cold. I think it would be a bit odd to go with two entirely blue/white wallpapers in a row like this.

Thank you for feedback. Here's what I came up with:

Crystaline v6

Crystaline v7

I know the selected wallpaper was the blue one but I made 2 green variations just in case.

Crystaline v8

Crystaline v9

I'm open to further suggestions.

Hi, one of the judges here, with a bit of feedback for your quality wallpaper.

The sixth version is probably my favourite version of this wallpaper—the rich blues and mellow contrast result in what is a very tranquil scene. I feel like a bit of blur around the periphery to give an out-of-focus effect would elevate the wallpaper's tranquil qualities even more.

I really love the solution you used in the v7 for the sea; It really is a very nice wallpaper. That said, the not-underwater part now feels to be very crowded and distracting and bright. I'd suggest trying something in that direction, maybe using just the snow color or just the more icy one.

Hi! I'm afraid I did not receive any email, or I accidentally removed it. Can I ask you to send it again?

Hi, oh I see. I thought the package might have got stuck somewhere and I totally forgot about it. I'm sorry.
I could send it again but since it's May already I'm guessing it's too late. Also, the world's crazy right now so I don't want to trouble anyone.
