Just watched the utube of Benoit Mandelbrot: Fractals and Dimension Breakz23. It really taught me something!! Are you him or just interested in his work? It is so fascinating, and gave me a true better understanding of fractals. Thanks for the link!
Nice work. You selection of this gradient is what makes the image fabulous. However, the entire fractal design is incredible. It has wonderful 3D qualities enhance by the gradient placement and rotation. I am sure this design has a multitude of personalities hidden within it, and all evidenced by a change of gradient.
