Thank you Sydney for the winning name! I can't declare winner on Facebook because their rules distance themselves from contest liability. I didn't know the definition of oracle included the knowledge & wisdom passed from an oracle, but now I realize the name fits perfectly.
An actual 3d fractal flame, hovering over an ocean. It's actually a composite of 3 renders, one of the 3d fractal, one of an ocean at the same angle, and a 2d version of the fractal used to cast reflections in the water.
This is a fractal image. The spectral lens flare isn't added, it is actully part of the fractal. I am adding a category for fractals, and will be adding several more soon. See the search page to select the gallery.
