Spring has come and I really felt the need to spend some words on this beautiful piece of fractal art, especially because of the style (fractal flowers :love:) and for the author. I know Iwona is mainly an abstract fractal artist so I perfectly know how much work, effort and care she put in this fractal, for it really requires a lot of patience (and layers and masks!). The result was great: powerful and delicate at the same time!!!

Let's start saying that what I like most is the color scheme. The shiny white border makes the blooms look magical and very evident, and the gradual passage to hot saturated red tones is really pleasant and soft. Like every petal was made of a velvet candle-light flame. I like how the petals vanish to the background too. The textures and dark natural tones in the background are very elegant and make a nice contrast with the foreground elements, the design really pops out effortless.

Another positive feature of this work is the very solid centers of the flowers, like lead-metal drops or smooth little jewel stones. Perfect job with the sparkles and highlights, both on the gems and in the whole fractal, they really work greatly!

I'm not that convinced with the composition, instead. The flow is nice, shapes don't overlap and merge with each other and can be easily told apart, but the spiral is quite "cut". So in these cases I prefer or to show the whole fractal, or to cut it much more, like it's only one detail of a larger design. I probably would have shown only the big flower on the right, with some tiny flowers on both sides... more on one side, I love asymmetry! (and I love even more vertical layouts, but this is just my very personal point of view ;) )

Nice work with the fBm distortion. Maybe it's a little too intense, but it looks fine. I quite always add it to my flowers too, to give them a more painted/natural look, but the risk is to get the opposite result. This is definitely not the case, I find it a nice example of how this mapping can take your fractal to a more artistic and expressive level.

Overall I really think these are outstanding trap flowers, with a very intense temper and a great game of highlights and shadows to create a pleasant balanced image. You should make more of these!!! :clap:!

Seeing as I am more prone towards a certain colour which you might very well know, I must say that the title very well fits the deviation at view.
It's a very good accomplishment by you to have done a flower fractal, seeing abstract is your niche, and the fact that you have stuck to visualize spring in more appealing manners of using fractal flowers rather than the delightful abstracts you do :giggle:

The background creates a stark contrast with the overall image of fiery flowers, although gray tones to portray cold blue winter is a very abstract but well suited choice indeed!

The soft eeriness with which the petals extend with a red centerpiece has a very calming effect. I can see a bit of gnarly effect here and there which is a great way to texture the flowers, or maybe it's the fbm in Ultra Fractal :? The center of the flowers look great and has a marble effect, and the fact that there is a depth effect with the black edges and a tiny spark is an added bonus.

Speaking, of the spark, it appears the sparks, although well placed with the gems of all the flowers center, also appears outside them which makes it loose its effect a bit. I wonder how you would get rid of that :D

The long tendrils on the bottom right and everywhere makes me feel it a bit solid edged from the overall soft blurred visual of the picture.

Overall, I really want more flowers from you :eager: maybe a different colour :cough: *point*

:omg: This is a wonderful fractal. I love the way the leaves are faded a bit. Just one minor point: in the background the shiny thingy from the heart of the flower seems to fall of the flower :ohnoes:
Putting this tiny little detail aside, I find this a beautiful image!
