It looks to be a simple combination of 2 stock photoshop filters. Saying which is difficult. Could be a combination of "paint daubs" "plastic wrap" "pallet knife" "find edges". Any mixture thereof.

As an educated guess im going to say plastic wrap with some rather high detail settings.

I think it's the ocean ripple effect with another effect after it

I think the ripple would leave harder edges and a more noticeable pattern though. Doesnt do much for height either.

Before you accept that answer (sorry Weed, no offence intended) I just want to point out that Milp's site is offering a bunch of custom Photoshop filters for download.  He or she probably produced this image using one of these filters.

EC's glass filter is basically a funked up plastic wrap..hehe...Remember that all the 3rd party filters do is slap a cute interface on whats already built into photoshop and possibly condense several steps into one.
