Colors are from this photo of some trees that was taken from a side window of a moving car. Photo itself is blurry and not very interesting, but it has this weird color error, right side is purple and blue and left side is bright green and yellow... So I opened the photo in gimp, added some contrast and limited colors to 16 to get this palette.

Absolutely stunning; the shapes, the subtle dithering, the color palette, I love it all :)

Well made, no wonder why it is in best 10.

I really want to see the original image now...

Really well done! The color choice is quite interesting, though I think the excellent design is the key here. You could use another different pallete, and the result would be amazing as well.

Thanks for the comments everybody :) I'm happy to finally submit this. It was supposed to be just a silly little palette test and a break from another picture I've been working on, but it kinda escalated and took me ages to finnish.

This was an interesting palette to work with. I feel that it's not actually very good, it has many similar colors and several times when I was working with this I felt I was missing colors between the bright and middle colors. But on the other hand I feel that the jumps in brightness and similar colors are the things that make this picture interesting

That is a funny way of making palettes.

Wow, really mesmerizing. The amount of detail and the unusual use of colour makes me want to stare at it for ages.
