Thanks for the opportunity guys!

I wasn't so happy with the current look of the wallpaper, so I made some modifications to the angle and colors:

Let me know what you think!

Hmm that new version looks pretty grainy. Maybe raise the samples for the global illumination (or however you're doing it).

Some feedback from the judges:
My absolute favourite aside Vera. It's both un-Plasma-like and Plasma-like at the same time. It feels like the natural evolution for Plasma wallpaper styling. I really like how this wallpaper turned out, and I REALLY can't think of anything that can be improved on this one. You did an outstanding job with this wallpaper IMHO.
Similiarly to the Milky Way, this wallpapers also lack a bit of the previous Plasma style elements and I would probably see it better for a non-default wallpaper right now; that said, there are some thing that could be tweaked to make it fit more. The pattern on the spirals could be changed to a precise geometric shape, such as triangles and the perspective could be made a bit more clear (e.g.: It's not immediately clear to me which spirals are closer, and which one are more far away). On the strong points, there's a wise use of colors and noise. This is a good wallpaper.

Hi, one of the judges here.

The whole wallpaper feels like I'm looking at a mirror that somebody's shining a bright flashlight on—I would definitely tone down the highlights. It has a bit of a foil-made-out-of-a-fantasy-metal feel, which I find visually interesting and unique.

I changed to a regular geometry, increased the number of samples and reduced the brightness on the left side a bit. I tried to find another perspective for the compositing but it ended up too busy or too 3d-ish, so the perspective stayed the same. Result:

As an experiment, I also made the geometry smooth, and while it doesn't fit plasma style, I find it quite nice and clean:

Hi! I'm afraid I did not receive any email, or I accidentally removed it. Can I ask you to send it again?
