And here the the second alternate coloring of the image in Vines #11. There are more colors to help the fractal fireworks standout. The vines now appear as shadows or waves around the main fractal shape.
I was going to move on to another topic today. But my obsessive compulsive disorder prevents me from leaving this topic with “yeah, that one could be better if I worked on it more”. So I went back to work on it. Here are two alternate views of the same fractal space, with better foreground / background separation. I muted the background, removed the corners on the vines and added gold / brown to highlight the high spots in the fractal shape.
Today’s image has some of the same issues as yesterday’s, too noisy and not in a good way. But since I had it queued up, and I am busy on other stuff it is what I have for today…
Center: -0.7535-0.0482i, window width = .0019.
I was undecided whether to post this one or delete it. The accumulator coloring uses a square rather than a circle. The problem is that the base fractal, that is same area but with default escape-time coloring, is complex and interesting on its own. In a sense, that starting point is thick. The vine coloring is fighting with, and colliding with the base fractal. There is not enough surrounding open area for the “decorations”.
I have moved on to other things, and there is more work to do before starting the next topic. I do not want to get in the habit of skipping a day because what I have is not perfect. So I decided to post this as-is.
