Continuing my exploration of this particular moon system. I started this out wanting to render the scene "from space" but again got distracted creating a foreground. I hope you don't mind.

"Awesome sky view"
This is an amazingly nice render. Would love to see a floating city in the distance... something like Bespin cloud city or a floating gotham (from your seasonal renders)

"Another wonderful piece"
I do love your planetscapes - I may have said this before, but it's no less true. And while "Rare Alignment" does look great, it's better from the cloudtops.

"Love plantetscapes !"
Another great planetscape !. And yeah, do prefer the cloud version.

You would be correct, except in this case the light source is being completely eclipsed by another celestial body :-) I need to render a panorama so you can see for yourself...

"Impressive Quality"
Ryan, I really like this rendition. The detail in the predominantly blue orb is truly beautiful.

"Gravity effect"
Once again you excel yourself, I can't help but think about the effect of gravity would have on any being unfortunate enough to live there. Once again great desktop graphic, thank you.

"Love it"
Good stuff as always.

This worked out so well! Totally different effect. Both versions are delightful. Thank you again!

As I looked at this beautiful picture, it struck me that the lighting in the previous image was wrong (physics-wise). The angle of the light on the planets in the sky should make the "viewing" planet in daylight, not dark. I also love the 8 planets shown in the triple screen renders.

"Much better"
Less "clever" and more harmonious

I think I prefer the original, but there's very little in it

"Now that works..."
Superb. Very effective.
