Vision: 4/5
This is a really well thought out and inspiring deviation that draws at the wonder and beauty of the perseverance of life. The angle of the view makes it hard to tell whether this is an alien world or an extreme environment on earth, which does draw some confusion as to what the artist's vision is.

Originality: 4.5/5
While their are other works of art out there similar to this one, this is one of the few that have caught my eye due to the combination of reality of the environment and astronaut, and the fantasy of the plants and butterflies.

Technique: 3/5
It feels kind of cut-and-paste-Photoshop in technique. The shadows and lighting are inconsistent and confusing, and the reflection on the astronaut's helmet is a little too big and bold for the distance he is at. The good news is that these minor errors don't distract from the overall feeling of the deviation, and if they are not errors, but deliberate, a minor touch up can show it and enhance the image.

Impact: 4.5/5
Great artwork has always been inspiring to me. This one is no exception.

Overall Rating: 8/10 Well Done!

only few words.....because the work is well balanced under each profiles...composition, tones (lights-shadows-colors) and strong idea.
Only foreground need just little adjustment to level more good that rock and those plants but the important thing is the global work...and im sure when i say that it's amazing!
