That may be both good news actually, since I've been neglecting the comedy part of the game a bit. Anything that looks funny is great The more glow version looks better up close but the problem is that the filter glows over the blades and it looks really weird from a bit further away.
I never thought I'd say this but I think that this looks actually like a place for a DOF filter that would hide some of the detail of the background trees. Maybe less single bit alpha and more regular alpha for the branches?
Amazing grass btw, what does it look like from other angles?
