[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A fractal filter was used to achieve this effect.

A fractal is geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. Fractals are used especially in computer modeling of irregular patterns and structures in nature.

The original is posted in the WS.

Have a good evening.

Hello my great friend Danilo

Ah .. I see that you did an excellent job
with Fractal, I always say, good taste and good taste!
Was excellent in the theme and look that is difficult to work
with certain subjects. And you show it to us

Fabulous presentation friend ...

Hi Danilo,
Truly blazing. This is amazing my friend! Looks like an abstract painting.

Dan, VERY interesting effect with this filter. Almost surreal of the bee and it's surroundings. I LIKE IT, a lot!
