With Proper Watering

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit."
~~ e e cummings

With Proper Watering was made in Mandelbulb and PhotoShop.

John, You have me about speechless on this outstanding, creative work. I really enjoyed the quote you used to go along with this marvelous creation. Now I'm wondering what you bring us next, I like this kind of creation even more than the wonderful faces. Tigs♥ =^..^=

Wonderful! I said that it's possible to make fantastic works with trees. You just have to have it in you. Either you have it or you don't. And you have it, my dear, I love it, great job!

Some people have Gurus, I have my camera. Through the cam lenses I have learnt to deeply perceive life, not only to see, but to look at all expressions of nature, becoming able to read the poetry of the flowers, receiving the embrace of the trees and flying above the clouds without wings! - Susie Sun

Broccoli of the Gods. Sustainably grown under a nourishing neon atmosphere and unfiltered Gamma rays. This crop looks particularly nutritious & wholesome, with just the right amount of iron pyrite in the stalks. Crazy good work farmer John.

Excellent entry, John. I've played with those parameters too. Love the lighted areas as well ... gives the feeling of fog or mist. Best of luck.

I think you're right, John, It's exactly what we have inside each of us. A part of our brain, of our mind, what else ? Magnificent colors for sure for a great image.

In the first moment, I agree with Jim, but then I see other dimensions of the image. Good lighting and color selection.
Very well done John.
