Really nice work. Great job on the color and blending, detail of the planet itself. Only thing I dont like is the abrupt change of color right around the sun. Think it should be alittle smoother.

Very sweet, I like the darker spacescapes.

This is kinda like a piece I was trying to do, tho I'm not nearly as good at spacescapes, same theme.

Love the ice planet, fog/haze is a great effect

amazing..that is terragen right? seems like a fog brushing on top..great blend with space and atmosphere is really admiriable. But, where the water ends, is that a waterfall? cause it's cut too short for to look like the horizon in my eyes..anyway anyhow, super scenery and great job :D

interesting concept and its done very well.
there would be a slight reflection of light on the ice right below the star though, just to give an added emphasis. (similar to water)
Smaller stars would also have a nice reflection too. Something else to consider.

Whoa. this is absolutly beautiful dude, the stars are wonderful. not so clustered which is perfect you got a awesome spread out and isolated feel to them. What im really loving about this piece is then land and even better the water and waves. I ashume the was rendered not a photo manip. The touching to the waves, how soft and foamy they're is brilliant. over all its a fantastic view. Very romantic too:)

is that based on a TG render (and then photoshopped the hell out of it)? The shoreline looks "familiar"

But even if, you still added a whole lot to it, fantastic piece :thumbsup: :) the slight blur doesn't look like "low quality", one can see there is ("was") a lot of detail. Only one thing looks odd, that bright star, too much contrast to the rest of the picture, and the small stars surrounding it look like JPEG artifacts somehow... (and shouldn't a star that bright "blend out" the small stars directly around it?)

hell that's nice. say, have you created the landscape in photoshop by hand or have you rendered it in some 3d program?! it looks like it was painted somehow. very deep atmospherical work here. :)

Was the land created with Terragen? It looks very nice and quite detailed, the dark lighting and deep hues only compliment in the best of sense. The lack of detail in the starscape actually gives a sense of realism, considering your looking up at the sky from the earth, not just looking at a space scene from...space. And those subtle clouds mixed among the sky look fantastic, it actually seems to be an ocean in the sky. Wonderful work.

I love it, but i can see the artifacts the JPG compression left behind. Something like this should be at least 300kb!

Very dark, yet light enough to see many of the details, it looks like a realistic night photo. Looking at the white shores, I think it looks like bacteria or salt rather then ice or sand. those sharp spikes in the ridges are a nice touch (if I'm seeing it right)
