Okay firstly this is really innovative and a great idea, wish I thought of it first
Secondly, there could be some minor tweaks to it. I see some color problems, where it gets really too grainy, and its more of a color saturation issue. You should either take the blur tool, and kinda go in there and smooth some blended colors in. Or, you could do it the easy way by doubling the layer, blur the entire thing, then set the top layer to "screen" or just lower the opacity to like 20 percent. It gives it a nice glow, as well as could give more intense lighting to it.
your tediously doing dedication to detail astounds me... O! WE OF THE UNWORTHY! :wrship: totally frikken' amazing! i could never take the time to get all the right color balacing, the light sorce shading and all the magnificant coloring you do, done. The rocks and lava are amazing... so is the bloody fine detailing of the planet in the background... so you wanna send some of that mega talent my way? eh... don't blame you for wanting to keep it all to yourself... *sigh*.... :hugs: Keep them lovelys comin'!
