Very nice pitures John. Like them a lot.

What did you use for generating the fractals?

These were rendered in Vue. :)

The landscapes can be converted to a format usable in Celestia but I'm afraid I have not figured out how to port the atmospheric effects.

Really nice work Reiko :) Seeing that in Celestia would be awesome!

Great stuff!

Unlike these

that's the kind of pictures we ALL enjoy tremendously and so will outside visitors...

PS: @John: how about spending your hires Jupi a layer with moving bands of clouds as I always do. At high zoom this gives much softer, less photo-like looks.

Storm clouds between Bariloche and Buenos Aires used as proxies of the top of the Jovian atmosphere. I just nudged the color balance to make them less watery white (I matched their color to part of an image of Jupiter from space). As for the blue sky, it may well be such in the region where Raileigh scattering holds.

I saw this scene in a dream of mine a few years ago, which depicted parts of the opening to an alternate version of the 2012 movie. Yes, it's Delta Tri, what'dya expect? :P

I took this picture back in 2010, and that hot July evening, my place was literally the absolute most humid place on the planet at that time. More humid than even the Amazon Rainforest. That humid week was a lot of fun, I loved it so much! :mrgreen: Again, Delta Tri impression. :mrgreen:
Image

Know that Nova Selene addon I uploaded to the CML? This is it. :mrgreen: I probably should've positioned myself better so more of the trees at my place would be more in the pic. :lol:

Because I'm bored and I feel like being a show-off. :mrgreen:

This was an attempt at editing a Celestia screenshot to make it look more realistic. Guess I got something that looks sorta like a sci-fi film screenshot instead. I think it still looks sort of nice. :)

I've made a few more space art images since my last post here. A few new ones and revisiting an old one.

All images clickable. :)
