I created this with Paint.Net and Photo Shop Elements10 it turned out very good I think I made the swirls using the paint.Net with the swirl effect and then used The PSE10 to do the rest it looks awesome on the DeskTop. Enjoy!
The first image I had in my mind when I saw this was a 'Swirld', basically a world of swirls! Everywhere, in the sky, in the ground/water! - even the plants & trees, including the roads and buildings! A virtual antique/renaissance artists dream world!
