UF5.

Still playing with Gnarl formulas and various coloring formulas like Log Smoothing and Magnitude.

This one is amazing. I have favorited a lot of fractal art lately, but this one hits extremely close to home being that I am a pirate at heart, and a viking by heritage. Very well done with this one. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for the compliment...I had been playing around in this particular formula for a bit when I decided to change the gradient which immediately reminded me of a vessel on the sea. This is about as literal as my pieces get, lol.

Great, it has a naval look, like the front part of a ship in stormy waters!!!

It resembles a shipwreck.. or at least that's what I see. Maybe that's why you named it Maelstrom?
Hugs,

This is really amazing how your able to use fractals with such fluency that the image looks like a painting. I'm just starting out with them as of last week, so I'm in awe here.

You succeeded, the first thought that popped into my head too was...a sailing ship battling the waves in a storm...a high masted ship like an old whaling ship maybe. Last night's final question on Jeopardy was Moby Dick by Melville, which I knew, tyvm. :bow:

Hello, Wonderful art! AMAZING ! A quest, what means with "various coloring" is there any special "color formulas" as can be used in UF /Apo ?

Feels like a Force 11 to me Kim. This is like kayaking in the Outer Hebrides and being storm bound for a week. Wonderful.
