Thank you for taking your time Kasper. I can agree that the piece might be better of without the lower plane, but I put it there to show that we were many in the hunt for anti-shangri-la (the parallel here being the hunt for new places in the mandelboxes) What I do feel is that that plane became a little bit darker than I wanted, and therefore feels a bit unnecessary? (almost invisible) ...)
The text on the plane was a "fun" way to "watermark" the image, easy to remove in PS .
Glad you saw the connection with the plane above and the curves. Well done Kasper!
PS. Render time was 15 hours I think (on my old 'puter...)
