I wish to have Mars canyon so close, even in a blue version, as cover for Kim Stanley Robinson novel :) ...The planet view is really nice, even if the architecure seems that could be more complex as shapes, is too repetitive. Nice work.

I think the moon is to close . Awesome work.

i think the moon should be tweak a bit so that it's shape could be define...other than that,,the scene is perfect for me...

Thank you for your comments. I guess I will post another one with a smaller planet. I did it this way because it felt better in the picture even though it comprimised the believability, but if its too much of a distraction then I understand.
Thanks again.

Wow! Very nice image. The concept is great. The only piece of advice I can offer is a little architectural advice.

Your design is really great, but maybe some more realism would be gained by resolving the sky-bridge entering the glass sphere. Not a big deal, but sometimes these small details add/remove realism from our scenes. The sky-bridge seems to collide with the sphere...not an easy resolve, but just a suggestion.

Otherwise - great work, I am really impressed!

Thanks kkleyla for the comments. Your points make great sense. I dont think I'll have time to revise this, but it was fun none the less.
