This is bloom. Bit blocky, but the blur algorithm is a bit naff.

Bloom is a where you take a certain range of pixels of the scene. (Often overbright parts, eg very bright reflections, looking at sun) blur it, then re-add it over the top of the scene, so you get blur overlapping other parts of the scene.
