-DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME- by DeepChrome -DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME- by DeepChrome
What is the one thing I always look forwards to as the first sign of summer...and what I always mourn as one of the last parting vestiges of my favorite season of the year?

Daylight Savings Time.

How many of you out there secretly rejoice when you get to set the clocks ahead an hour, and watch the sun stay out longer and longer each day? The longer days are as much a part of summer as are the trees, the rainbows, and the butterflies. :)

Enjoy.

Done in Apophysis 2.04beta, no scripts (just rings and disc variations), and no direct alterations done to the fractal itself besides a slight Levels adjustment for those of you who know Photoshop. Only other postwork is the title and border, and a little cropping as the render came out with a little too much empty space around the fractal.

:nod: Thank you! Glad you got the summer impressions I was aiming for out of it. I was very much reminded of summer sunsets and the like.

It helps when this contest was run all of June, too. :D Experiencing a few of those sunsets help a lot.

There's a lot of interesting things happening here. It has a glowy/summery feel that I dig. I love summer art!

Thank you. Yeah, it actually started out on kind of an orangey gradient, and I was like "wait...summer sunsets..." and just tweaked from there.

I'm glad you think it's got a summery look. :nod: Seems to be kinda tricky to get a summer vibe out of a fractal.

Did you do an entry yourself?

Thank you. Glad you liked this one so much. Yeah I wanted a sense of heat, of warmth....and really fiddled this one gradient until I landed on something I liked. Glad to see the effort's shown.

Thanks. Yeah, that was the idea. A warm summer sun. I was going to go for hot sunlight, but the more I thought about it, the more it reminded me of warm summer sunsets, and THAT led to my thinking of daylight savings time. :nod:

Hey this represents what you said perfectly...I for one love daylight savings too. I like it in Autumn and Spring. It's always a change of pace feeling to me that I really like. I wish it happened more often lol. It's a trip that most countries never use day light savings.:O_o:

Great stuff and great concept. This made my night.:D
