Dear Lord... that is simply stunning. I am seriously stunned by the amount of detail that you've incorporated into this piece and of couse, the simple size and grandeur of it all. In all honesty, if someone showed me this in my astronomy class, I would be compelled to believe that that really existed, somewhere, out there in the cosmos. Also, as a small side note, the border is quite fitting, it's small enough and yet, still is apparent enough to be effective but not imposing.

Damn fine work. :thumbsup:

It looks more like two swans....

Anyway, contrary to the first few posts, I think the focus of this is exactly what it should be. The "nebula" being in the center doesn't take away from the aspect of the stars at all.... Actually, the stars do a lot to accentuate the nebula. Though they don't exactly look "real", they really are better this way, because besides being a lot more personally artistic than a randomly generated starfield, they serve to break up the black parts better.

Good work. One of your best so far. A lot of work went into this one, and it shows.

Very nice work. Nice to see you submitting new stuff. You should produce a tutorial on how to create such great effects like these...unless you have and I've overlooked it.

This is a fantastic one, the natural look of the billowing and light enhancing gasses seems believable. I would almost swore their actually photos reffes with that gain, could have added NASA crosshatching and pass it off as a amiture discovery :P How many overlays did you end with on this one?

As usual you have signed here a great piece of space art. I very like the composition in two main parts, and also the space given to the nebula, in some way it is even somewhere lots in space :)

never thought I would have to say this, but it's like been there, done that. it's not new or refreshing. I think you could have done something more, to make it look more innovating.
now please don't shoot me, I'm just an honest critic. :)
