Here's another in my series of viewpoints on the Caerulea system. This is the same scenefile as "Caerulea" and "Caerulea (Orbit)" with the camera moved to a different location (keeping the planets in view of course).
This is one of the most fantastic mountain views I've seen, and your mountainscapes are always favorites. I really think you've outdone yourself this time. Great work!

Planetscapes are the best, and since blue is my color....win-win. This is the best of the 3 in my opinion. I don't have multiple screens but it looks like it would be even better.

I really like that you can create one world, so to speak, and get multiple views out of it and I encourage more of that. Unfortunately, there are some issues with the implementation that make these not as great as I would have hoped.
The texture repetition is rather apparent on the mountain rock and snow, especially on the double and triple screen shots. This really takes away from the enjoyment of the work.
With respect to the double and triple screen works, the structure that appears on the mountain is rather jarring both structurally and texturally. It really doesn't fit with the raw nature look of the shot, and I really can't tell what it's supposed to be as a building. Texturally it also doesn't stand out against its background in any meaningful way, meaning that it offers no contrast to what is already present.
I hope that you find this review useful in adjusting the present work and when considering any future such efforts.
"Love those layers!"

Love the foggy layers and depths of this one. Great job and going to throw this on one of my desktops now!

Great render Ryan. The single screen views are my favorites as the physics in the multi screens are off. There are too many moons to make it believable. That's not to say I haven't added the 7680x2160 to my rotating desktop. I also like the observatory or 'igloo' as others have pointed out and would also like to see a second rendering with just the mountains, snow, clouds and Caerulea as the main planet.
Keep up the awesome work! I do love the alien style planetscapes you are creating.

This is definitely my favourite angle, but... what's that artificial looking thing on the mountainside in the multiscreen? An igloo? An alien insect nest? A weird graphical glitch that got lost in Skyrim? Sorry, but to me it doesn't belong in this otherwise natural scene - I'd prefer a dualscreen version with just the clouds and snow. Otherwise this is gorgeous. Makes me feel cold just looking at it.

Sorry Ryan, I say no to the Pickle Jar, this and its partner Caerulea (Orbit) are too good. Leave them where they are, oh and I think spacescapes are the best BTW.
"A different view"

Very nice variation; the same view of a gas giant and a black moon, but now from the mountains. I agree with another patron that the white on the right side could use some toning down, but otherwise, very cool.

The dome on the dual- and triple-screens is the orb from Follicle?

how/why this one has less than a 10.0 rating is beyond me but...wow! It's perfect!

This is a really good look. The colors are pleasing to me, and the planetscape is awesome.
"Way too much..."

Way too much white on the right side. It's blinding me, lol. Otherwise not to bad.

This is instantly my favorite angle you've done on this so far.
