Fractal: Stellar Horizon by simonsaz3 Fractal: Stellar Horizon by simonsaz3
I gave Ultra Fractal 4.03 a try tonight and this was the result-- my first! The title is courtesy of my husband. I like this program because it's more flexible (to me) than Apophysis. Let me know what your thoughts are about it.

This is so beautiful :O

I tried several times to make something and I always gave up. It's not for me :D. But what surprises me every time, is when I see what you people can do. If you didn't put it in fractal gallery, I would never say that it's a fractal.

You're very welcome.

I can read tons and tons of tuts but it won't help me :) I really did try, many times. I just can't do anything more complex. So I will stick to my cell phone themes :D

Thanks so much! And aww, don't give up! Each one of us goes through that "trying-to-understand" stage, and the more you practice and give it time, the better you get at learning all the ropes. If you need any help with tutorials, let me know and I can try to point you in the right direction.

Thank you very much! I used a program called Ultra Fractal for this fractal... this was my first, and since then I've gotten better at using it. Be sure to check out my gallery to see my latest fractals!

...Wow.
It reminds me not only of stars in the sky but of, like... a carnival...
A whole bunch of rollercoasters at night, all lit up. :D Or chandeliers. Or the abduction rays of UFO's. XD

LoL, wow... thanks for the input, my friend! I can totally see how that would look like a carnival. I like the chandelier idea too, and the UFO idea made me laugh, hehe.

Wow, this is actually very retro! And very pretty too. It reminds me somewhat of that arena at the beginning of FFX-2 where Yuna does her singing performance. ;)
