Wirklich toll! Very kaleidoscope or fractal like, how do you make these?

when i started here on dA i was making simple kaleidoscopic images by mirroring photos...
feldrand.deviantart.com/art/br…

when i found fractal works i felt inspired and challenged to explore more possibilities of mirroring and came to manipulating the photos in photoshop before mirroring them...
here are four pictures which show you the steps from the source photo
feldrand.deviantart.com/art/no…
to the distorted/manipulated photo
feldrand.deviantart.com/art/ps…
to the first mirror
feldrand.deviantart.com/art/th…
to the manipulated mirror...

later i started blendig two or more photos together before mirroring... here are two photos of tire tracks, one in sand, one in snow, blended together and mirrored...
feldrand.deviantart.com/art/sa…

the last level i reached so far was by adding perspective to the whole matter, like here...
feldrand.deviantart.com/art/ar…
this one took really many steps in the making and was thrilling fun... :D

yes, and that was more or less the point when music began to take over again, and when i quit making pictures to play and record music like before i came to dA... :faint:

thank you so much for your interest and feel free to explore my gallery... :hug:

oh, i´m glad you liked it... :D

no, i was so addicted to my photomanips and besides i´m addicted to making and recording music, i simply refused to even try fractals - i know exactly that i would drown in there and never come back, haha...  so, for the sake of my family i said "stop" before the addiction to that could have had a grip on me... :D :D :D

and then i´m really happy to have found such a fine fractal community here on dA which provides me with fantastic works literally around the clock... and all you fractalists are really decent people who like to share - rejoice!!! one look in my "fractalistic" faves says it all.........

Auf den ersten Blick konnte ich nicht viel mit Deinem Zwergenreich anfangen, aber dann habe ich mich etwas vertieft und viel "Zwergisches" und deren Schätze entdeckt :-)

a long time i didn't want to work digital - when i finally started a few years ago, i was really happy about what i could do with my photos... before i had tried to "mirror" my photos and it was sort of useless and i gave up... with my pc it was so easy and i plunged into it... then i started discovering other tools and stuff and came up with things like this one...
the picture you see was made from this...

btw. thanx for asking, i put the link to the roots/source photo into the artist's comments... :D

thank you so much...
