Mandelbulb 3d ~ Journey to the Center of the Earth

I really enjoy Mandelbulb 3d as you are probably guessing right now.  Every once in a while I come across some parameters that should be shared with other enthusiasts.

Here is what I started with for my 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' Mandelbulb.

The original can be seen on deviantArt, *allthenightlong's artwork called 'Heaven or Hell'.

My first take on that was the following.
My second take... and embarrassed that I didn't save the exact parameters...but oh well, that is how it goes sometimes!
Was this:
I really like this second version the best.

I have to look into rendering the images better and do a bit more research.  I rendered these files differently than in the past.
Here is a sample of the screen shots:
I used a DE stop of 5.
I really don't know why, but I guess I was experimenting a bit.
The render did take nearly 3 hrs.
A long time, but I considered the final image worth letting my laptop churn away while I did something else.

Happy Fractaling!
