Specs: Moto G Power to Capture; Android Tablet to Process

The original is of a chair from a set of four that we were preparing for sale. Took it into Snapseed to adjust the tones, then into Mirror Lab, under Fractals and playing with the settings. Suggestions?

Hi Tom, this is a very clever exercise. I love to look at those fractal patterns.
Could this possibly have more contrast, brightness, and a touch of sharpening? I tried that twice, totally messed it up the first time, and here is a second try applying less of those adjustments. What do you think?   Posted: 10/03/2020 20:43:03

You could also consider another color, or even a color gradient effect.   Posted: 10/03/2020 20:46:06

Fantastic image! I love this exactly as you have presented it. It's mesmerizing with a 3D quality to it, and it is really a chair! Very clever, and fun creation.   Posted: 10/04/2020 21:09:01

I like the patterns that Fractals has created. It's interesting, and I cannot imagine how it comes up to that final image. I guess that you had fun in creating it.
I agree with Stephen that sharpen a bit more would be best.   Posted: 10/05/2020 15:45:05

Amazing design! I like the way you have a diagonal line and that the top Diamond seems to be the focal point. One could spend hours looking at this design!   Posted: 10/05/2020 17:19:42

What a creative idea! I don't think I would add color to it as the white sparkles with the gray give it a 3D look. Nice job.   Posted: 10/08/2020 10:24:15

Oh, yeah! I can see how much fun you had with a simple chair seat. So psychedelic. Reminds me of strange futuristic round towered buildings in computerized movies or tubes out in space. The moire-diamond effect between the tube-towers really play with the negative space, too. I like the color you used naturally from the chair seat. (Who knew how far you could take a chair from reality?)   Posted: 10/17/2020 12:05:16
