2021 May thru August 2021 MAY: Open OM2 Aleator Plug. Under the Formula Tab scroll down to the Fractal Formula “Browse Button” and go to the OM.ulb in the Public Formulas. Open Bivar X 61. This is a new formula. Use it as a base layer, add coloring and/or mapping formulas to make a good fractal. 2021 JUNE: Open OM2 Aleator Plug. Under the Formula Tab scroll down to the Fractal Formula “Browse Button” and go to the OM.ulb in the Public Formulas. Open Bivar Mandelbrot 6. This also is a new formula. Use it as a base layer, add coloring and/or mapping formulas to make a good fractal. 2021 JULY: Open OM2 Aleator Plug. Under the Formula Tab scroll down to the Fractal Formula “Browse Button” and go to the REB.ulb in the Public Formulas. Open Burning Ship Switch. Use it as a base layer, add coloring and/or mapping formulas to make a good fractal. 2021 AUGUST: Open OM2 Aleator Plug.

2021 JULY Challenge: Bohemian Dome Textures
2021 JULY Challenge: Bohemian Dome Textures Preliminary Remarks: Last month we explored one of the Public Formulas with the word “Plug” in the title. Some formulas, colorings and mappings have a browse button for plug-ins but do not have the word “plug” in their title. At the time of this writing, a few of these are as follows: A: THM.ufm Generic Switch with 50 plug-ins under THM.ulb, 142 plug-ins under REB, a lot under OM.ulb. and a couple of others. B: JLB.ufm Simple Switch Formula, with OM.ulb and REB.ulb having a lot, and a few others having some plug-ins. C: RKB.ucl with “Single Shape” having a selection of plug-ins. D: OM.ucl: the three Owonomo colorings. E: REB5.uxf with OM.ulb having four plug-ins. Only four of his hundreds of plug-ins are present here. Some of the other formula writers have a few and others have none at all. Those who have none at all are apparently listed because they do have plug-ins somewhere else in Ultra Fractal. There are other formulas

I would like to show you my way of editing infrared photographs using Photoshop CC and the NIK plugins Viveza 2 and Silver Efex Pro 2. I started about 10 years ago with infrared photography using a Fuji S3 Pro body and two Nikon lenses. Having not been satisfied with the endless exposure times, I bought a used Nikon D70 having taken lots of infrared photographs over some years. In 2013 I decided to buy a new Nikon D90 body and had it converted to 720 nm.
My newer infrared photographs are all taken with the Nikon D90 converted to 720nm by Optik-Makario, Germany. At the moment, I am using a 18-70mm and an 18-200mm lens by
Spirals: What an Addiction
Lately I've been making all kinds of spirals, seems I can't stop making them. All of the spirals I've made so far are made from random batch fractals with usually 2 transforms and on occasion a final to give it a different shape. I've been thinking I would make a tutorial on my approach to making spirals and want to know how many of you would like to learn more. I know these are old school fractals but once you start you might not want to stop, let me know if you are interested. Here are a few samples:

Alone But Not
Can we be alone when we are not? I think so. We are there, they are there, but we are alone. Can others know the emptiness of loss of love and friendship? When that company is there, but not? Others too are there but not. They have their lives, their families... Do they care, I think so, But perhaps not enough to know the loneliness that is now here, How could they? The despair that one can feel when a loved one is there but not. Those of us who know understand that, We are alone but not.
