Thanks, glad you like it! :D
The controls for hard shadows are in the 'post-process' window, the lighting option just
turns them on or off. :nod:
As I've stated in the description, this was made using the 'soft shadows' option.
To get accurate shadows requires a good bit of practise. Light positioning is obviously
crucial, so you need to be making lots of small test renders to check the outcomes. :pc:

If I said this is not beautiful, I would be lying.

Agreement numerically interrelated embodied in the electricity fractally propagated in your minds machinery, as

One : purpose : Data : explore utilizing realms of mathematicity, incubated made the initial thought, a new competitive idea, to primary thought construct concept, starting off your inner mentality crowd-sourcing creativity process as a potential marriage of ideas, purpose plus the autocracy bluntly stating your genes primary achievement directive to create : Data :

Secondly : to capacitate your minds control of itself, along with all of your subservient brain components to obey its directive till the task of creation has been victorious, Data :

Thirdly : Do and be one, the thing accomplished, perfectacating your molecular imagery till it not only's perfect in your opinion, but do so self birthing it self, decimating all obstacles to its liberation, such as time, which you possess,

[ PLUS ]

the right set of environs, conducive to its existence , which you possess in your art studio,

[ PLUS ]

the fact that you know that your brain has changed by your life's experience all of which if it did not occur, U would not be U, nor the imagery you will create tomorrow be created, from your mind, as idea, liberated to the eyes of mankind victoriously! Does every idea you get have a right to be birthed into reality and why?

A lot of us wonder what is all this technology utilized by you doing to the brains of the onlooker of the fractal imagery that comes out of your talented over active fract'ated brain to the world?

This perceptive preview is coming to you by what?

Is its existence to entertain momentarily the viewer and once his/ her attention is satisfied, waned and be forgotten ?

Have you thought about why you make these images of the worlds in your mind, and are they reshaping yours and your fans, and audience viewers brains right now?

Have you understood your brains quest fractally?

Lets say subconsciously your beings corporality desiring recognition, be that monetary, geo fame recognition amongst your peers, or self satisfaction has been accomplished?

Would you do what you would? And if, no answers comes what does that mean fractally?

why is the [ PLUS ] and [ v ] sign so emblematically displayed in your picture Master?

We will discuss this soon in the future!

Until, then, thank you Master, and keep it up, emanating as always Master!

In the light of the Force, until the next time continue your course, Peace!

The Fractal Forums the possibilities are infinite

Wow! :wow: Well, what can I say to that weaversss, except that I operate on a purely intuitive level when I'm creating fractart. I'm in no way a mathematician or scientific type. I'm left handed and right brained, which I guess lets me intermittently and momentarily 'switch off' my frontal cortex and allows my superior temporal gyrus (:phew:) to alert me to reaching the 'sweet-spot' during a fractal exploration: 'Horizon' BBC2 14/3/13! :nod: ;)
I approach fractals as landscapes or environments that require sympathetic treatment when the time comes for colour and light to be applied, and once again my right brainedness (?) comes into play for this crucial part of the creative process.
Always a pleasure trying to answer your little queries weaversss.... ;)
