Hello there

I love the particles that moving from right side to the left side. I love the colors and composition. What I think that you need to work a bit more on is a background. It needs to have stars shining or something. Its a bit dead at the moment. It looks like a bitmap pasted in a composition program.

Another things is lens flare: its too intensive and its moving even sun (which is obvious its source) doesn't change its position as well as camera. So its unnatural for a lens flare to move in this situation.

If I was you and if I had enough time, I would add some secondary branches animation to the tree.

That would be my 2 cents.

thanks a lot George, will sure work on it.. and i did know that the lens flare should not move when there is no motion in the camera or the object emittin light ,but later thought that it would look more interesting.. i will sure take that animation off it.. thanks a lot again.

Looks nice. Only thing that bothers me is the outer edge of the planet or sun. Too me the sun looks furry because of the how the edge is broken up. Im no expert in astronomy or anything but most of the time, until you get to a certain distance, most planets, as we're used to seeing, appears as almost a complete solid circle. In my opinion I would fine tune the edges of the sun and maybe even add a few higher solar flares.

Just my thought. Looks cool though

Besides the colour palette and the fact that the orb is now a sun, it's almost a direct ripoff of shots from "The Fountain." It's nice work though.

That was my first thought. I still like that 13 seconds more than I did The Fountain.

Anyhow, it looks really neat. Brilliant colors.
