The Tryst by laurengary The Tryst by laurengary
I uploaded this as a "raw" fractal even tho' I added a tiny bit of texture to it....does that technically make it a fractal manip ? The age old question around here !!!

I felt the minimalist palette could take it even though it's kind of a busy fractal. What do you all think ?


Hi guys !!!!! :wave:

Long time no see !!! :smooch:

Oh, I do have a larger file to upload if you'd rather...... let me know. 1600 x whatever.

This is my first fractal of the year btw .....& the first fractal in months. :O_o:


:hug: :love: :peace:

Love The Look Of This.  I Do Love Looking At Bright Fractals; Which Are Some Of The Most Difficult Fractals To Create In My Opinion.

Thanks xzendor. I'm guessing you mean the pale background ? I used to LOVE to do fractals on white backgrounds just because of the level of difficulty involved. A lot of people think that working with white is like wearing a white shirt, anything goes with it, but that's just not true. You even have to be careful of the colors you use.  Every little matters. Anyway, thanks a lot for looking & thanks even more for commenting.

Thank you ! It was part of a set that I entered for a contest. I actually was runner up, but this wasn't my runner up winning image. Still....I like it. I'm partial to earth tones & gnarls in case you didn't know & I love white backgrounds on a fractal too. People think you can throw any ol' color at a light bkgrd but the opposite is actually true.... you have to be very careful. Anyhow..... thank you VERY much. I'm really pleased you liked it. :)
