This is super amazing those hills are really something else, I just wish those birds were more photographic and less icons to match the style of the mountains, I think it would go better. That's just me though.
I have been thinking about revisiting this piece about those birds. The birds gives balance to the picture, but they are iconic in nature. I will play around with some birds this week and see if I can replace them.
I usually don't even like figurative fractals but wow, this is great. Having the sun as a semi-circle instead of showing the full thing is kind of a stroke of genius, composition-wise. And the folded mountain textures strike just the right balance of realism and fractally fantasy imagery.
The only quibble I have is that I think it might look a little better without the birds, which seem slightly out of place to me, but it's not a huge detraction. They are still worked in better than most people work in their figurative elements.
