Rainbow Loonie Lights by wolfepaw Rainbow Loonie Lights by wolfepaw
This is one I did when I was tweaking my brains out for the 4th Round Robin, conducted by :icondwalker1047:, :iconcmptrwhz:, and :iconfiery-fire:. I do so many during the RRs, and the ones I don't upload just kind of sit on my hard drive, lurking and waiting to be rediscovered. I just "rediscovered" this one this morning. I have a ton of "marbles" still left. I may do another collage with all my "marbles", before I lose them.

I hope you like it.

Made with Apo 2.08 3D Hack, postwork in Photoshop CS. Full view for detail and download is 1280x960.

Thank you very much, Dolores! I'm so delighted you like my fractals! I'm always happy to meet someone who is discovering the wonder of fractals. Aren't they amazing?

Thanks! Yeah, the colors are pretty much out there. Can you tell my young adult years were in the late 60s and early 70s?

So very lovely! I love the dynamic feel this has, as if the energy can't be contained within and has to escape outwardly. Love the vibrant colors.

Thank you mucho grande, Lea. :hug:

I was thinking about submitting this for the :iconfractaldreams: Rainbow Contest. I really like it except for the kinda bright pastel bit in the middle of the loonie. It almost doesn't go with the rest of the color scheme. What do you think? I have some more time, but I would like to settle on something to submit before it gets to close to the deadline. Since you always give such helpful and thoughtful input, I would value your thoughts on this.

LOL!! Good luck!!! I don't think **anything** could put me to sleep tonight!!!! My AC went out about 1pm and it's hot as fire in my apartment because the stupid people have all the windows in this building painted shut!!!! I have my back door wide open just to get some air (which I really don't like to do in a city this large but I'm hoping that nobody will notice since I'm on the second floor)!!! There's no way I'm going to go to sleep tonight even if I were able to! The heat will be enough to keep me awake but with my door wide open there's no way I'd get any rest anyway. This is one time that it's good I'm a night owl!!!!! arg!!! I've been drinking ice water and have been going ever so often to the shower to douse myself with cold water but I'm still sweating like crazy. GEEZ!!!! I hate Texas heat!!!!! I also really hate the fact that stupid people painted my windows shut!!!! What the freakin' heck were they thinking?!?!?!!? :frustrated:

OMG!!! No AC!!! In TEXAS!!!! It's been over 100 degrees in TX lately. I know because we've been having the same weather in MS. I couldn't do it! How do you breathe? It's so stifling out there. What part of TX are you in? My mom and my brother and his wife live in Houston. Oh, I feel so badly for you. I wish I could send you some cool air through dA. I guess technology still has a way to go, huh?

Oh GEEZ!!!!! If **ONLY***!!!!! I **wish** my stupid puter would be a nice AC-producing chillfactor for me!!! :rofl: I'm in East Texas at the moment; but I'm originally from South Texas which can get even hotter! arg! The heat here though is plenty hot enough for me right now, thank you very much! :phew: I've become a wimp now that I'm older!!! I've gotten so spoiled to AC! I didn't look at the temp earlier today. So I don't know how hot it was then; but right now my weatherbug (the little helper thingy on my Vista sidebar) says it's 80F. It's almost 3am and it's still 80F!!!! =P I rent an efficiency apartment right now but I used to own my own mobile home (before my ex husband came into the picture! grrrrr). When I first got it I didn't have AC. I went without AC I think for about 5 years. I pretty much had to do the same things back then that I'm doing tonight. I drink lots of ice water and periodically douse myself (clothes and all) with cold water in the shower. With my house though I could at least open the freakin' windows!!!!! :pissedoff: When I called the stupid apartment complex's on-call people they were telling me they only come out in emergencies. I asked him "Other than heat stroke what do you consider an emergency?" He said "Oh that's a *personal* emergency! We don't come for that! We only come if there's a fire or flooding or something like that." So even if I was here dying of heat stroke they *still* wouldn't give a darn!!! They would just tell me to dial 911!!!!! $#%$*&^@&*#&@*!%#$ GEEZ!!!!! What a lovely world we live in!!! =p I told these people about my AC when I first moved in too! We had some days in February when I moved here that were warm enough to turn it on and I could tell there was something wrong with the compressor. So I reported it. Then I told them again about a month or so later since they hadn't done anything. The manager told me that it would have to get hot before they would do anything about it. Well.... it's been hot for quite some time now but there's been nothing done and now it's completely dead! They had better get me a good one tomorrow!!!! grrrrr!!!!! I want to feel the icicles on my nose by this time tomorrow, darn it!!! Ok... enough of my ranting and raving for tonight. It won't do any good at this point anyway and it's just making me hotter to have my blood boil! :shrug:

I didn't know that MS would get that hot! I thought it would be much **cooler** that far north! Geez!!! I was thinking about someday moving farther north but if it's just as hot up there during summer and snows during winter too then I think I'll stay right here in Texas!!! At least we don't have that much snow!!! It's only snowed in south Texas I think twice in my lifetime... once when I was a kid we got a couple of inches and then about five years ago or so we got 4 inches. That year they said it hadn't snowed like that in over 100 years!!! I know here in East Texas it snows some... a bit more often and also to a greater degree than in South Texas... because my son has lived up here for quite some time and he's told me he's had to deal with the snow at times. It's still not that often though. Thank goodness!!! I don't know how to drive on snow!!!!! I'm hoping it's pretty darn close to hydroplaning on mud or water like we get all the time in South Texas but.... I've not had to deal with it yet. So I don't know for sure. My ex would tell me horror stories about his problems with driving in the snow. He was pretty darn good at it. He lived in Alaska for quite some time though and was originally from WA state. So he had plenty of experiences to speak of!

Ok... I think it's time to go refill my ice water cup and douse myself with cold water in the shower again. I'm all dried off from the previous dousing and sweating again like crazy. :phew:

Yeah, another 70s flashback, dude! With a little touch of the 80s thrown in - kind looks like a psychedelic disco ball.

Very nice, a lovely render quality too.

I recently discovered a little tool in Paint Shop Pro called UNSHARP MASK. On some fractals it seems to boost the render quality by a good 50%. Just open the image in whatever image editing software you are using and find the tool and try it... I love it. You have to twiddle the setting a bit to get what you want. In PSP there are a selection of suggestions you can try. I have just used the basic one so far. I thought unsharp meant that it would lose some of the sharpness. However it does just the opposite.

Thank you, Roz. I'm glad you like the render because I've been using the Post-render process in Apo lately. I found that upping the Filter Radius can do wonders to the smoothness of the flame. But if you increase the Filter radius before the render, it can lengthen the render time. And you can adjust Vibrancy to above 1, which you can't do until you render it.

I have been using the Unsharp Mask tool in Photoshop for a few years now. Like you, when I first saw it, I thought it would unsharpen. But it does, like you said, just the opposite. I don't know why it's called an Unsharp Mask. Makes no sense to me.

I also use the Post-render thing. I didn't use to bother but have been using it for the past couple of years now. It does make a difference. However I also use the Kyoto Color filter in Flaming Pear, I can adjust the gamma and change the colour if I wasn't too keen on it after the rendering.

Lots of lovely tweaks, I think we should use them all if we want to.
