My part of theluminariums exhibition called "Energy". You can check out the other awesome entries here:…

A different attempt this time for a close up planet. I kinda like the result. The picture is available as dual screen wallpaper for widescreen resolution (if you have another setup, just crop it to your liking).

I can literally feel the size and vastness of space looking at this. Truly impressive!

I cannot critique a work that I myself cannot create.

However, in my eyes, this is an absolutely astonishing piece of work, and I am simply floored by your talent. My hat is off to you.

What a great work of art! The use of scale and colours makes this a stand-out piece...

superb, only the real thing would beat it.  They should find a suitable building somewhere, university, museum, spaceflight facilty, etc.  Put a fifty metre long copy on the wall in a good spot, dining room, library, foyer, etc.  Somewhere where people can sit drink coffee and be inspired to dream.

Followed link on io9 story to find this.…

Wow! This view would be every space fanboy's dream. To stand there on the moon and see the earth like that would be breathtaking. (Admittedly, our home looks much smaller from the moon but still :D)
The red nebulous cloud in the background looks beautiful and fitting. The texture of the moon surface and the earth with all the swirling clouds in the atmosphere just look so real. The whole scenery has a sense of grandeur.
I love that you added astronauts on the moon and a bursting volcano on earth. It really brings depth to the scene. The astronauts and the volcano look about the same size and yet our awareness of the power of the volcano puts a lot of things in context.
Finally, I would say that... I want to be there. This scene makes me want to be be there in that very spot and view the world and the cosmos in all its glory.
Great work! :)

This is literally one of my favorite science fiction images of all time. It was my desktop background for months. What an amazing piece. The depth and feeling of being so elevated into the heavens is breathtaking. I love this. The volcano is a nice touch as well. It's like looking at the very essence of space exploration.
