Like hsoj95, i am also not sure what the focus of this piece is supposed to be. I'm not even sure what it is i'm looking at in general. I don't, however, think that blurring the foreground is necessarily a good idea. Here's why: You'll get shallow focus primarily when doing macro photography, or when objects are very close to the camera. That shallow focus can often give the impression of looking at a piece that is very small. (Taking a picture of a car and blurring the edges gives the impression of looking at a miniature.) And i don't think you want this here – i think we're looking at something very large here.

Unless we're looking at a planet's surface and flying over it at very close distance, then perhaps blurring it a bit could work, but you could also try to add some "clouds" that we're passing through.

Again, i'm assuming we're looking at a planet below. If this is the case, it doesn't appear to be very large. The curvature appears rough, not smooth like that of planet Earth seen from space; likewise no glwing atmosphere above it. And maybe the surface blends too much into the sky above it.

Finally, all those clouds, or filament, or whatever they are, appear to be roughly the same size. As such, they don't create any sense of depth. Maybe this is someting you could work on.

Okay, i think i've rambled enough now :)

Thanks for your critique, I think you nailed what I'm getting hung up on. You're correct its a planetscape, here's what I had in mind. www.experiencetheplanets.com/_…

I like how this is shaping up. I do agree with you though, I am having trouble discerning what is supposed to the the focus of the painting. If the Blue light is supposed to be the center of focus, then I recommend two things, One, make the foreground much softer or blurrier to discern that the light is the focus object. The other is that I would, if you can, move the blue light just a hair up and to the right, to follow the rule of thirds. Doing that can really change how the image will look. Here is an example of what an image with the rule of thirds looks like: Cave of The Mystic's Power by hsoj95
As you can see, the light from the cave entrance is roughly one third of the way up the image and one third of the way to the right of the image. I don't know if you can move the blue light, but if you can, it might help add more depth to the image. :)
