The Milky Way by SymmetryBox The Milky Way by SymmetryBox
Apophysis 7x as always!

Edit: Wow, thanks everyone :O I've never gotten this many faves on dA before but I really appreciate it :aww: it means a lot to me! Thank you!

Wow, this is amazing! Can I please have your permission to use this image in a picture book I am working on and hoping to get published? If everything works out, how would you like your name written in the credits?

A galaxy can look like whatever you want it to look like :)

Beautiful colours and spiral effect - I particularly love the little dots of light, some blurred and others not, that really give an accentuated feel of depth to this pleasing image.

Thank you for sharing!

Legendary. I've seen lots of fractals based on a space theme, and they're absolutely my favorite kind. Furthermore, seeing a fractal of a galaxy is rare, so I collect them whenever I can.This one was done very beautifully. So far, I consider this the pinnacle of your works. Hopefully, since you're a beginner at fractals, you'll surpass this and create even better works. I think it's possible. It'll be interesting to see how you'll grow as an algorist. :)

This looks really cool! I've seen countless amounts of fractals that remind me of things found in space but this one definitely looks more like the real thing :D Perhaps a bit more perfect and colourful than the real life Milky Way but that just makes it more interesting.

What I really like though is the 3D look established by the depth-of-field effect and the bokeh effect on the stars, ironically making this look like a photo of something really small =p
