After a few more natural-looking Autumn landscapes I thought it might be a good time to journey offworld for brief excursion. Like many of my planetscapes this one started life as a space only scene which I then used as a backdrop in Vue.

Perhaps I will release the "moons only" version in the Pickle Jar?

"Nighttime Version"
I like the nighttime version of this better than the daytime! Moons are more prominent, and it gives it a more celestial mood.

"Moons only"
I like this, as I do many of your planetscapes. And yeah I'd love to see a moons only version !.

This is Awesome, these planet scapes are some of my favorite renders.

"This is it!"
This type of art is what made me so attached to your art over a decade ago. Thanks for helping us dream Ryan.

"Nice and quiet..."
Gimme a six-pack, a BBQ, and A shack and I'll call this place home.

"Three Moon Bay"
Wow - colorful and tranquil. I can almost hear the insect symphony. LOVE it!!

"A modest suggestion..."
I really liked all the different views of Caerulea that you did. I would be interested to see more views of the big moon in particular.

Awesome. I'm a, (one of many it seems !), fan of your planetscapes and this one is seriously cool. I could see myself sitting on that beach to enjoy that view !. (I am enjoying it as my desktop.)

"More planetscapes are always good"
Always happy to see more planetscapes. Especially when they're night scenes, and beach scenes PLUS planetscape PLUS night scene....well!

This is so peaceful and serene, and beautiful.

"Beautiful Night"
I love the night time images. Thanks for this.

"Re: Glowing Atmosphere "
When I created the moons in Lightwave I added some luminosity to the atmosphere in part to mimic the atmospheric glow I?ve seen in a lot of night photos from the ISS. The ring around the red moon did turn out a bit less fuzzy than I had originally intended though.

I really like your planetscapes.

I also noticed the hard white outline of the smaller moons, especially the mid-sized one, and I think it makes them look a little unrealistic.

But the overall effect is beautiful.

May I see the moons only version, please?

Simply awesome. Makes me want to just stare at my monitor desktop without any windows open on it.

"Love it!"
A nice looking picture with great perspective. The colors are lovely.

"stunning "
I love this one. its jsut stunning to me.

Very nice and lovely. Have to agree with others that the hard line around the smaller moons takes away from the scene.

A moons-only in the Pickle Jar would be great.

"Very nice"
I've always imagined what the sky would look like with a closer/more moons or a ring.

"Beautiful, but...."
I agree with a previous reviewer: the hard white circle around the two smaller moons looks unrealistic and artificial. Otherwise, it's lovely!

"White circle"
That hard-edged white circle around the bottom-right moon looks a bit weird and artificial. I don't like that, I'm afraid. Otherwise, very nice.

"Unexpected Beach View"
I like, a lot. Planetscapes are my thing. The moons only version is much anticipated....

Mon October 1, 2018 at 9:50 am

"very nice"
Please put up the moons only as well!

And don't forget the multi-screen versions... :-)
