Cool Fractals

3D Mandelbrot fractalThe winners of the POVRay Fractal Raytracing Contest have been selected. I like the 3D-Mandelbrot on the left more than the winning entry.

The aim of the competition was…

to create a visually compelling image of a 3D fractal form using the POVRay raytacing program. Since fractals in general can only be approximated by computer graphics, the emphasis is to create as faithful a geometric representation as possible.
