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, 4k preferred for print of calendar)
   Images must be fractals, created with fractal software, post-production is allowed.

- To participate, just post in this thread and attach the image to your post. (don't use the gallery)
  Please give it a good name, and add interesting info like software/formula used, parameter sharing is very welcome!

- 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 can vote for each entry once (using our voting system bronze, silver and gold -  1, 2 and 3 points)
  This voting period is from the beginning of the contest, until the 28th of the month. 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 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/will be used in the
  calender 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 new 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 off all.... have Fun!   :thumbs:
Fractal Forum team.

Black hole - approaching the event horizon

This highly detailed image with lots of things to discover on full size view is the result of combining 16 images from mandelbulber (10 Images of the fractal, 3 more of it for the background mask and 3 of the background itself). In the attached file is a composite image of the most important source images in its original state. As you can see, the combination of these did change everything. To get this result, i had to make and mix many more images and discard most of them to tryout, which is the best way to get the best result.

-The fractal itself is a complex hybrid. It has been carefully built and selected due its nice distinct shape.
-The transparency has been improved by combining 3 images with different material refraction indexes. This made the transparency much more even.
-The surface of the fractal has been made more realistic by combining 6 images with diffrent surface properties. This did also improve the diversity of the transparency and other properties so that every part of the fractal does look a bit diffrent.
-The iteration fog has been added in 1 seperate stage to save render time. Everything except the fog was black so that i had just to add it.
-The event horizon is actually a seperate scene made by stacking and after editing 3 images of a primitive sphere with fog effects.
-The background became background by making a mask out of 3 images of black distance fogged fractal infront of brighter background (the combination of images with diffrent settings made it smoother, sadly the jpg conversion ruined it alot. I got the png on my harddisk, but it's 10 megabytes are twice the limit).

"Chlorophyll universe"

Parameter-space image of zn+1=(-0.9072+0.6594i)*zn*zn*(zn-c)/(1-zn*c) (pauldelbrot's fractured mirror function).

Two critical orbits were followed and their fate combined to a weighted sum color function. Bounded orbits contribute by last angle or angle sum average, escaping orbits contribute by repeated log of smoothed escape iteration count. Plane range is -6..+6 in both axis, bailout 108, 2500 iterations.

Atomic Fusion

Using 'Bonusbrot' formula in Infinity Fractal.

    Z = Z2 - C
    Z = Z2 + C
Z = Z2 + C (obvs)

"Border"

Formula (iterated in a loop until escape; colour by matrix-derivative-based distance estimation):
  z := z^p + c
  z := (|x| - i y)^p + c
  z := (x - i |y|)^p + c
where
  p = 2
  c_0 = a_0 + i b_0 (center of view)
  a_0 = -1.77882775614707743274765
  b_0 = 1.24158287044600457634568e-3
  r = 5.9604644775390625e-8 (in-radius of view)

Rendered at 8192x4608 with my work-in-progress 'et' software, downscaled (gamma-aware) with GIMP.

Ferdinand's Trials

In the first scene of the Tempest, a storm strikes Ferdinand's ship, leaving him stranded on the mysterious sorcerer Prospero's island.

Fractal recipe:
Start with ConstrainedSin. \( z = x+iy \Rightarrow a*(sin(x/a) + i * sin(y/a)) \) with a=2.4
Then mix in \( z \Rightarrow sin(z) \)
Followed by a dash of everyone's favorite \( z  \Rightarrow z^2+c \)
Finish with the antibrot. \( z  \Rightarrow \frac{a*z^2 }{ z^2 + a} + c  \) with a = 2
Then repeat at least 300 times.

Serve the parameter view center -1.473 + i * 0.6477 and width 1.0, stretched with aspect ratio 2.0.

And if you are still worried about Ferdinand, don't be. Things turn out well for him after he meets Prospero's hot daughter Miranda.
