It looks more like Gooqie than Geeqie. Perhaps even Gööqie.
I'd favour a logo that didn't contain the letters of the name "Geeqie" at
all. A small picture with informative value and (if possible) recognition
value. If displayed in a list of app icons, user would immediately assume
that it's an image viewer. Which is why a "picture with a magnifying-glass"
is a good choice for an image viewer app icon (like Eye of GNOME).
The idea with two eyes (or eye-balls) goes into the right direction.
The geeqie_logo_02_icon.png doesn't resemble a single eye or 'e', however.
