I think the mediocre result was because the filters were simply applied in the wrong order.
But color me a cynic.
Running every filter on an image is old hat for the Quality Engineers testing Photoshop. If you think someone will try it, even if you think it’s stupid-crazy, you need to test it.

[True dat. --J.]
