This is your highest rated art piece and I can definitley see why! Dude, you seriously have to go into CGI with your submissions here! It's been so long, it seems like you would be used to the technology. It's almost kind of sad, because I realize I will never be as good as this. The uses of green and blue are completely flawless. This is my favorite art piece of yours.

I like how you can see some land on the planet. The Sun shines so brightly it's illuminating the entire...sky? (what would you call that in space?). The ships are also fantastically designed. It seems like a screenshot of the best animated film ever! You rule now and forever, dude!

Very good job on the lighting and focus- the out-of-focus haziness of the ship in the foreground really makes it stand out, and the lighting from the star is enough to give that needed sense of pull in. The ship designs is quite nice. The planet adds that needed sense of scale and home- the needed place for the ships to defend this space against any threats. Just a few critiques- the unlit side of the planet needs to be darker for the night side. There also needs to be a bit more detailing in the ship exteriors, and shadows on the unlit faces. There should also be a bit more coloration in the nebula clouds. This is still a good work, though.

I like it. Like it.
It is truly very great what you have done here. The picture is creative, and the artistic style is somewhat original diverting from what other author's tend to use. The planets are all in proper perspective, and the light work is creative.
Everything falls into place simply fine. But, the greatest aspect of this work is its creativity. It's a different style. Nice work.

How you make a photo since the space? oO

Awsome work and AWSUM detail.

Very pretty

My first reaction was "wow". It has a good and interesting composition (even without the ships). The longer I look, the more I find it very 'unnatural', though. There is something about the blur of the front ship that makes it look fake. Perhaps because it is not corrected for different parts on different depths...? The light dots on the planet don't look like things you would see from this distance. The 'super nova' looks far swirlier than what I have ever seen on a space photograph. Also the top part of the nebula seems to have sort of horizontal (swirling) stripes, which seem out of place in space for me.
But the overall impression it makes on me is 'wow'. Nice nebula and planet, with good structure and lighting effects.
