This is Far Away, a place named after a planet from a couple of Peter F Hamilton books I have just finished (Pandora's Star & Judas Unchained). This was created in Terragen 3 Pro, Modo701 with a dash of Zbrush and Photoshop. Hope folk like it

Very nice work! I'm a big fan of Hamilton - keep reading, you're going to love them! Do the Void trilogy next, it's in the same universe.
I hope he inspires some more awesome pieces like this from you.
Thanks Yes the Void Trilogy will likely be the next - but I am reading Alatair Reynolds latest first Mr Hamilton is an epic committment - does he write anything <1000 pages??? LoL!

This is very beautiful. Thanks for mentioning Peter Hamilton as well. I had never heard of him before seeing this but now that I've seen this scene I'll have to check it out
Thanks for the comment. Peter F Hamilton has writtten quite a few books and I have just started reading them - I really did enjoy the 2 books mentioned above, they are long and detailed but worth the effort! Looking forward to reading more of his work.
Excellent atmosphere created here, I actually thought that was a large alien monolithic structure in the background, Id add some very subtle lighting to suggest this but the scene as a whole is wonderful, I hope to achieve such as this one day myself, cheers
That's a great idea, I might have aslsdo added some window type lights to the structure which may have given that impression too....mmmm....I need to think these things through a bit more...thank you for the suggestion and the kind comments.
Thanks for the comment. I see what you mean, I think I was hoping the big structure in the background would be a point of focus, maybe a destination for the ship, but I hear what you're saying, maybe it doesn't add very much.
