This looks great Wendy, I like the spinning catacomb look this has, although for a sprial image, for some reason, this doesn't have that much depth, actually the centerlooks like the top of hill when you're looking down, almost like layers ontop of each other, but that doesn't bother me at all! This made it to my favorites!

Love the color, the texture and the lighting. Beautiful. It has the look of a colorful sea-shell. Really pretty!

Wish it was a little less grainy but still nice

Looks good, I like the layer effect that this image has. My only complaint is that this seems a little too saturated. Maybe contrasting shades of red would work.
And, Radjehuty, I think it is just the on-site image compression. I think I remember a topic on the discussion board about this, especially with red.

I see where you're coming from Morpheus. In fact I was monkeying around with different hues and saturations after I put this up, in addition to entirely different color gradients. I may put this up with different colors and/or reduced saturation as well.

I don't see the graininess, Dave, but thanks for your feedback...I rendered this at very high resolution. I agree that the reds sometimes lose a bit of clarity when compressed, but there's little I can do about that except, perhaps, bring down the saturation a bit as Morpheus suggested. Thanks all for you input!

What a stunning image - you really achieve a depth and vibrancy with the programs you use, well done.

It looks like some sort of infernal organic web. I like the colours and the sense of spiralling down.
