Thanks. I was afraid that it might be too "bright"... but it seems that's not the case.

Nice image, I love all the blues in it. Also, Ender's Game was the first long-ish book I ever read I think, I remember really enjoying it even though it was so long ago. If you liked that and if you happen to be a Halo player, there is a book that is a prequel to Halo, and a surprisingly excellent read. Just thought I'd recommend it to you. Nice work again on the abstract!

This is a great abstract. It also makes a great desktop. Blue is a very calming, soothing color & there are many days I need to be soothed!!!! This image also flows very gently. Good job. I don't think this is too bright, but just right. A 10/10 & in my fav's on my HD. Thanks you KJ.

Amazing! I really love your work! It flows so nicely together and the lights and darks make for an almost 3D illusion effect. 10/10

This is lovely. It reminds me of a really close up picture of black hair done as a negative.

Neat image. I'm really curious about the rules of these contests, though it's kind of fun trying to infer them from the resulting images and comments.

This looks like the technique described in the 'Fractal Flowers' tutorial (written later?). Not sure though. Just curious really.

Wonderful colours.

That is really pretty! I love how the blue curves and turns make it look wild and peaceful at the same time.
