Top 10 Placement in Fractal Abstracts’ Summer at Last Avatar Challenge in June 2011

I have always enjoyed watching beautiful sunsets, especially when the sun sets over water, be it lake or ocean. Throw in some palm trees, a rainbow or colorful clouds, some birds singing…perhaps as close to paradise as we’ll ever get in the mortal realm.

Created in Apophysis 7x v14 starting with the flame parameters for Pink Nautilus kindly shared by Wolfepaw and reproduced here:

by wolfepaw

Rendered with Julia3D plus escher in the final transform as a .png file, then blended with duplicate layers and a black background, mirrored and color adjusted with an added circular gradient and a supernova with lens flare in GIMP v2.6, then saved in .jpg format, and finally stretched with added 3D sphere and Lake transformations and scaled up in UF.

The main image without UF transformations was:

  • Thanks so much for the fave and comment, Marjut, and a most Happy Easter to you as well. It was looking at your marvelous manipulation work, and your kind answer to my questions about how you did one in particular, that have inspired me to learn some of these wonderful techniques using GIMP and UF; so, Thank You!!!
