    no text is better, and I hate to say this but it doesn't look as if you put 52 layers of effort in.. it looks like 1 layer of smudge

    What do you mean?
    Does it lack depth or something or does it just look simplistic?
    I can give you guys my PSD when I get on my PC...

    I can see what it is you were trying to do, and the only issue I see is not including the render in the smudging nearly enough.
    That, and I would make the smudging a but more intense. Displacement maps maybe.

    I mean that it is lacking depth, contrast, and it's really simple.

    Smudging looks too flat and kind of blurry..
    Like RY said, render could use some smudge love..
    I'm not sure what you smudged into the bg,
    but it lacks any real texture which makes the trails look too smooth.
    You could have done a few things to fix that.
    Either by adding textures, or I find that well executed clipping masks work.
    Sharpen and burn tool will be your friend after you get that part down.

    This, and then now that I think about it, be sure to keep your focal out of the center. If you're going to use the text as the focal, make sure to do some resizing. If not, follow a thirds grid and burn/dodge accordingly.

    I wouldn't say you fucked up. Just could use some improvement in a few areas.

    Thanks for the feedback, but I really can't be fucked to mess too much with the psd, I did a lot of edits on flattened images and if I deleted those I'd have to do half of the piece from the beginning.
    I did although make a few tweaks.

    Definitely looks better already. The contrast alone has added depth. I think, like you've pointed out, that because you've already finished your work it'll be too hard to make drastic changes. Just keep the points Ry and Eth said in mind when making your next piece
