It's a nice photograph and an interesting filter, which gives it something like an impressionism or pointillism look. Did you take the photograph?

Yes I took the picture with an old 2 MPX camera from the back of an Icelandic horse as we were riding around the beautiful countryside!
The final image consists of some 30 layers with various filters applied, Orton, emboss, bump map, phase shift etc, I think it came out pretty cool.
I had to straighten it about 4 degrees as well, since the original horizon would have made you sea sick.
The original image is a 1024x768 :shock: , so I had to do some pixel splitting during resize which takes forever... :? :|

:shock: Next time I'd recommend leaving your webcam at home and taking a proper camera. ;) :lol:

I like the effects you've applied, they hide the diminutive original resolution very well.

Excellent work, Zwopper ! It's a beautiful wallpaper, and I'd never have guessed it started life as a 1024X768 image. Ben
