:bulletblack: Entry for the :iconultra-fractal-redux: August 2013 "Remastered Fractals" Challenge Link

:bulletblack: This is a re-working of an Ultra Fractal image I made almost exactly seven years ago now.
The original parameter file is dated August 29th 2006. I had been using UF for all of 2 months at that point:

Planetary Chain by Velvet--Glove

:bulletblack: I chose to remaster this space scene because I still like it but I've long felt it would benefit from a bit of a makeover
as my techniques and preferences have changed somewhat over the years. So I beefed up the colours and corrected problems
with the tonal range and brightness. I also added a slightly more interesting space background and more textures... some of these
textures use image import (using my own resources), a technique that was simply not available back then. Lastly, I changed the
dimensions/ratio of the piece to give a more panoramic view of the scene and removed the frame. I think the new version retains
a lot of the feel of the original but is much more striking and dynamic. What do you think? :D

What a difference. Really liked the first one, but this is much more mature
