Mountains, planets, sunshine. What else could one desire? Some inspiration from Avatar, and some of my own imagination.
Large parts of the image were done with the help of my Cloudy Summer Alps Ref Pack.

From the composition to the use of effects and colors, this truly is a piece of magnificence. The shape of the larger planet in the background in front of the red star provides this piece with a great sense of distance and perspective. The greenery provides great variety when in contrast with the mystical mountains. What sold it for me was how the clouds are formed and positioned throughout the entire image; not one cloud looks out of place. It shrouds the mountains to give the background great height and a sense of tranquillity; however, the red star/planet looks as if the planet if imminent to some sort of disaster and I love that. Overall, this piece is absolutely great.

This is godlike; no other term can describe it. The enormous blue planet looms over the landscape as the crimson moon beholds the mountain peaks in their shroud of fog. The lone bird to the bottom right is rapt in contemplation as the viewer is seized by all-encompassing yūgen, AKA a "subtle profundity of things" that human intelligence and language can only hint at.

Composition and technique are perfect, as usual. Light and shadow are each in their exact right proportions: you can see all you need to see to derive a sense of scope and perspective, but there's also plenty of stuff that remains darkened to arouse your desire to behold it all. You managed to create an expanding, insurmountable world in a single picture that gets imagination and awe flying. I'd love to see this place in a motion picture, but only if it's done with your level of love and care for detail. Kudos.
