Thinking about changing themes

I’ve been using the Evanescence theme on my blog for almost six months now.  I still like it quite a bit, the only problem I have is that it’s a fluid-width theme and that messes up my layout if the screen is wider or narrower than I expect.  I originally chose a fluid-width theme intentionally, but after using it for a while I’m thinking of switching to a fixed-width one.

I have a thing for skies and clouds – I have a picture in my mind of what I’d ideally like in a theme, but I haven’t found a perfect one yet.  My WordPress/theme/CSS/HTML/PHP/art skills aren’t really up to making it myself, although I may give it a shot at some point.

One of the themes that I’ve found that closest matches my ideal is called UpDown Cloud.

Here’s the current theme – Evanescence:

And here’s the theme I’m thinking of switching to – UpDown Cloud (the WordPress page for the theme has disappeared):

Which one do you like better?  I’ve created my first PollDaddy poll – feel free to vote or leave a comment.

Slightly off topic – why is a plugin browser built into WordPress 2.7 but there’s no theme browser?

EDIT: Apparently the reason the reason the WordPress page for the UpDown Cloud theme disappeared was the theme contains a link to the website that created it, so if I use it all of my pages will link to them.  Hmm.
