For those that are participating in the newest #FeedbackFrenzy, please do not attempt to critique this without some prior knowledge of what fractals are and how they work. Some knowledge of `Xyrus02's Apophysis 7x would be helpful as well.

I'm Rick, offering a critique for the #FeedbackFrenzy contest. This is a striking piece that really grabs attention. The stark contrasts, sparse palette, and unusual composition pull me right in, where I then notice the more subtle lines and their interactions that make this really interesting.

One of the "rules of composition" counsel against putting the center of interest near the edge of the frame. But a good artist knows when to ignore such rules, and this is a good example. The bright area at the bottom is so bright that it would have grabbed too much attention if placed further up; keeping it near the edge tones it down and allows the eye to explore the more interesting areas in the rest of the piece. Genius! There is enough dark area in the top two thirds that the overall work is perfectly balanced.

The circles scattered throughout the piece add contrast and interest. I especially like the ones with the bright center. But I find the solid circles a bit distracting, and out of character with the rest of the piece. Their positions are great; I love the patterns they form. I just wish they weren't bright circles. Assuming you used more than one blur to make these, perhaps making some of them gaussian_blur (or a combination of gaussian_blur and blur) would help. Or using a post transform to change them to ellipses would make them more like the oval "holes" on the bottom left and might tie them in better. It's hard to say without experimenting; just some ideas.

But that's a nit, really. The patterns, the variety, the simplicity mixed with complexity make this a very special work. Thanks for submitting it to the Feedback Frenzy contest so I got the chance to study it.

Thank you very much for the Critique, I must apologize for not checking "Request Critiques", I had forgotten ^^;. And I see what you mean about the distracting circles, now that I look at it, it does tend to make my eyes wander off from the main subject.

Thanks for participating :D
