It's nice to see a different look to the wallpaper.
However, what that reminds me of is an image from a camera taken at very high ISO speeds with noise reduction not doing a very good job with Chroma Noise.
For example, look at the very first patch on this page:

That type of noise is particular ugly in images, and this wallpaper instantly reminded me of it. It also reminded me of how some noise reduction can be inefficient (resulting in "blotchy" type grain, versus finer grain).
The softness of the logo also reminded me of how a camera's noise reduction can smooth detail.
Again, perhaps it's just because I look at images from a variety of cameras all day long. But, that wallpaper immediately reminds me of a camera that's doing a terrible job at taking photos at higher ISO speeds, with inefficient noise reduction leading to blotchy chroma noise in the images.
So, I'd sure appreciate it if you figured out a way to make it look smooth (or at least fine grained) versus blotchy.
What you are seeing is most likely a result of on of the Gmic effects (spread noise) that I used to make the base image.
