Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans - born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace.

What a beautiful and original piece, cant belive the date, that I missed this before, thanks for re-submitting this. It almost looks like 2 overlayed flames, but with the 3DHack using zparams I guess you can extrude parts of the flame up. Perfect how you got the upper background white, is that done in post? Nice work :)

The quote goes very well with the piece. It looks like the flame is shooting out of a source of power. Well done!

A wonderful fractal, and a quote to match. I think the colors are excellent, and quite muted--the "discipline" Kennedy speaks of, perhaps.

Great work.

Natalie - Every time I stop by your gallery, I get gobsmacked. I've seen flames like this on and off for some time - but you've blown 'em out of the water. Clear, crisp, great color - wonderful stuff!

Thank'ee for sharing it!
