Image of the month contest.   The rules are as follows:

- Every user can submit ONE cool picture to become our fractal image of the month.
  Images must be your own creation! Production date is unimportant.

- Good resolution (HD mandatory) Please give it a good name, and add interesting info like software/formula used, parameter sharing is very welcome!
Maximum accepted size is:  3840x3840 max, and 5mb as optimal.Otherwise I have to adjust it when I upload them to the winners Gallery. If I do, don't forget that if you want to upload a better version than I did in the gallery, you can always edit it yourself later on.
   Images must be fractals, created with fractal software, postproduction is allowed.


- To participate, just post in this thread and attach the image to your post. (don't use the gallery)   

- The first two weeks of the month are for suggestion, until the end of  the 14th of the month,   00.00 hr. midnight  (A'dam time)
   Check your local time here:
   https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/netherlands/amsterdam

- You are supposed to vote for each entry once.  (using our voting system bronze, silver and gold -  1, 2 and 3 points) .
  Thumbs are nice, but don't count.
  This voting period is from the beginning of the contest, until the end of the 27th of the month. The winners will be announced the next day, at the 28th. You can change your vote during the entire period. Voting will be stopped at 00.00 hr.  midnight  A'dam time.  Check your local time here:   https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/netherlands/amsterdam

- Top3  will be displayed in the Winners gallery when voting is closed, and at the end of the year in a best of the year
  thread/galleryslideshow.
  https://fractalforums.org/index.php?action=gallery;cat=25
 
- We want to try to revive the printed fractal calendar idea. So any submitter automatically accepts that his image can be used in the
  calendar if it wins.    (all money from the calendar goes into the further development of fractalforums.)

- After the winners are announced, the winning images will be presented in the 'gallery of fame' to honor the winners and their Art.
  The winning images are presented in this gallery, which will grow to become a "best of" gallery:
https://fractalforums.org/index.php?action=gallery;cat=25

- Post any questions, or suggestions you have here:
 https://fractalforums.org/fractal-image-of-the-month/70/fractal-image-of-the-month-discussion-thread/150

Please start admitting your best work now and most of all.... have Fun!   :thumbs:

Shining Through

A slice of triple matchmaker parameter space with an interesting color method: using "soft light" to combine layers from the four critical orbits, each colored by closest approach of attractor to initial z, and with the gradients chosen to make the no-attractors region bright.

"Baby universe"

Triplex Julia set, interior points at 150 max it, colored by max distance to origin, downscaled 3:4 and saved with 90% quality in jpg to reduce graining.

{x,y,z}new := d({x,y,z}) * { x3-3xy² , 3yx²-y3 , z3-y3-x3 ) + { -1.29688 , -0.0625 , -1.51562 }

with d({x,y,z)} = repeated log of 4*Euclidean length of {x,y,z} until value drops <= 1.0
