This is my first wallpaper made using Sterling2 -- a fractal program I only discovered recently thanks to Mythmaker! I'm annoyed with myself for not noticing it before, especially as there are other wonderful Sterling wallpapers on the site, and I know I've seen some of them before. Perhaps I thought they were created with Tierazon.

Sterling2 is free, but should come with a health warning -- it's highly addictive!

I post-processed it in Photoshop Elements 8.0 to change the colours slightly and to bring out detail... also added the lights and made a moon. I had to be firm with myself, as I was tempted to post the fractal as it was, but I knew with a little work I could make more of a picture out of it. I'm sadly lazy these days. :-(

Awesome flame and post work, Tootles! I absolutely love everything about this!! The variety of colours, cute little "moths", and that moon! And, the lights really add to the total magical experience =D Truly beautiful composition! Faved + saved to enjoy longer.

OK, so I have downloaded Sterling2... but, not coming up with anything promising...just yet. I will give it a few more goes though :)
