Title: Not Good!!!
Name: Brett Anderson
Country: USA
Software: Modo, Photoshop

Now if your wondering what i mean by "Not Good!!!" its that thing in the background that looks really bad and like its going to destroy everything. Thats what i mean when i say not good. So I used Modo to model the planets, add stars and render it. I use Apophysis to create the cool looking space things, and did a little photoshop on the atmosphere. So hope you enjoy!!!

Self-critism is the path to improvement. ;)
To be honest i think that "thing" is more interesting than the planet in the foreground.
I simply found that planet too boring, and there is something wrong with the illumination.
The moon is only lit by side while the planet is complete illuminated. But where is the light source? The second thing are the stars. If this thing in the background is some kind of mist/fog the light of the stars behind it should be weaker. It seems to me that all these brighter stars are painted in Photoshop with the same brushsize.
I dont want to be too harsh since i dont know your abillities.
For me, the planet destroys the composition a littlebit, because it doesnt match the coloursheme from the background that much. The image itself isn't bad at all, but it lacks something which makes it special.

I think you should consider to work on it some more.
I really like this thing in the background, but i think it would match better to an more surreal space scene. Not only an single planet, think about an asteroid field or something like that, which could make the image composition more interesting.

Keep on doing...

Ps: OR you could drop out these boring Balls and concentrate on these cool surreal space twirls. ;)
Is Apophysis an 2d or 3d program?

the nebula looks very beautiful and dynamic, a lot like Richard Bailey's 'spore' art.

The planet makes it look vast in extent especially when listening to pink floyd music on the headphones :-D
