Awakening by lucid-light Awakening by lucid-light
Software used: Apophysis

I couldn't sleep last night. Actually I didn't sleep properly since friday. I couldn't fall asleep for a long time and then woke up several times a night.
You know that state just between sleep and awakedness, when your thoughts start to tangle with dreams.
For me it is as if some outer force had started to meddle with my thoughts, adding foreign elements and animating them in strangest stories, even though it's actually all my brain's doing.
Last night I had a moment of clarity, awakening from the half-dream state, with an alarming feeling that something has changed. I don't know what did change but after that I fell asleep and slept soundly until morning.
Something new is blooming inside me, a glorious and shiny change I hope. I've been idle for far too long.

Thank you for all favourites, comments, critiques and devwatches! :rose: It means a lot to me.

Hi mate ! Just saw you needed some critique, but don't take mine so seriously, I'm not a professional at all :D (and also sorry for grammar mistakes and stuff, I'm french)

Let's begin :

Vision : Globally nice, hot colors, sunshine yellow and nice green stuff on the up corners. I really like those colors and the impression it gives (+ center of the picture looks like a flower <3)

Originality : Doesn't look like most of the fractals i've already seen >> 5/5

Technique : Nice shadows and lights, well done. As I said before, the colors are also very nice :) A bit bad that some parts of the pic (if you look closely) are a little blurred. Only negative thing, don't worry about that ;)

Impact : I'm just like :O when I see this in fullscreen, this is beautiful. IMHO it would have been better to see it in 16/9, like a wallpaper (you should try this)...

Globally very nice but I'm not a professional, I'm just like "a spectator". But still looks cool to my eyes :)

I could easily see this as a stained glass window with the morning sun shining through it. Very nice.

I'll be honest here, this reminds me of a wormhole effect. Like, where there was glass in the middle but it was sucked into time/space and opens on the other side of some tunnel that leads to a new and exciting new place/thing/idea. Sounds exciting in itself! Love it!
