This is a great picture, I certainly cannot do that on Apophysis, but when I look at this picture, it doesn't really look like mana. The bigger rocks swirl with strings, that definitely makes me think of mana, but then the ground is so...unflowy. It makes my mind go in a different direction, so it makes the picture seem less like mana. If you think that it does look like it when you see that though, then it's fine with me.

The lines on the ground are a nice touch, they add to the magic effect, with the green trail that perhaps could be plant magic, and the circles around the pebbles could be some sort of fairy circle. Otherwise, this picture is very good, the lighting draws you in, (no pun intended) and your picture just looks alive.

Genius work. Thought-provoking and mesmerizing. It's all too common to say fractal art is amazing or looks stunning, but this, this takes it to a whole new level. The fidelity is extra-ordinarily high, and the devil is in the details. The turbulent marbles seem to resemble atoms or subatomic particles.

I also feel like this could be the skin of an alien lizard-like creature, perhaps that's because of the green stripe glowing through, but also because the orbs remind of scales on a reptile, particularly the smaller ones. Conversely, I feel like each one could be a mini-universe marble, not unlike in the original "men in black" theory. Perhaps a multidimensional universe hatchery?

It is rare that I find something that stops me from mundane reality and makes me ponder the meaning of it all, and this one does just that. Sparking the imagination and creating a storm of inspiration. Deep and satisfying this truly is a marvel of fractal beauty at it's highest pinnacle.

Fractal art is usually so creepy to me.  But this one is cool.

Very pretty! It makes me think of both dew drops and planets in space.
