Several overlayed transparent twirled/stretched versions of the same noisy layer, creating a scratched surface. Works nicely as a desktop wallpaper methinks.
combination of chrome/sharpen/blur effects, overlayed with a color gradient
lots of interlacing scanlines/blur/sharpen effects, creating a neat pattern.
it all makes sense now
i don't know what the hell this is. ended out nicely though.
Also try this enlarged version of the midsection, makes a nice wallpaper on a black background.
I like my wallpaper dark and blurry. This one stretches out nicely at any resolution.
