Fractal of Nature

Fractal of Nature
As a programmer long back I enjoyed writing code to generate Mandelbrot Set and Julia Set. This image and a few others that I made during a last few visits to Ranganathittu brought those memories back. These are nature's fractals, here is one such. Thanks for your views..

OMG the light and the stillness of the water in this image is Out Of The World. What I loved about this image is it holds the aesthetic appeal despite plonking the Crocodile. I still remember thinking seeing your "Last Light Of Day" image on your website that a wide angle shot of the same would have been spectacular, and here it is.
Truly mind blowing stuff Sir, and to see numbers inside this beauty you definitely must not made of the usual stuff we are made of...;)

Wow! what a POV ..seems ethereal and more like an underwater shot..perfectly balanced.. A vertical Image is also appealing to me

Friends, you will enjoy all these sets referred by Ganesh, if you really enjoy mathematics ! there were days when people tried to plot similar ones on paper and finally endedup in calling themselves as 'fools' like me :) Thanks for reminding all those days Ganesh.

btw, apart from mathematics relation in this image, this is expected from you Ganesh.

Splendid perspective, Ganesh! What is most astonishing about the image for me is the way the croc is beautifully lit against a background that is half lit and half dark. My mathematics is woeful and I couldn't comprehend even a modicum of what 'fractals' are all about, but the analogy is intriguing indeed because you have once again combined science and art effortlessly, which is a pattern seen with the greatest artists and the greatest scientists. Thanks for sharing this product of your genius. :-)

I can (probably) understand the idea (of fractals) with which you've made this image. When connecting both, one does see the similarity in the pattern.
That apart honestly speaking, on its own this image doesn't seem to appeal much to me. There's certainly nothing 'wrong' with this image but simply doesn't ring the bell (to me).
The light on the trees (on the left side) bring out more than enough details which is probably counter-acting. I am trying to imagine if the following combination could enhance the image: a detail-less (or very minimally detailed) foliage/trees around the spot-lit crocodile + the existing blue skies. This could emphasize on the graphic impact of the image.
Just my thoughts/opinion.
