Your work is beautiful Dominic. You are one of my favorite photographers and I'm jealous of your travels. Although I get to travel a little bit through your wallpapers. :) All the best.

The texture and details on the planet are excellent. I also like the blue tint, it is a welcome respite from brown deserts.

What bothers me is how a very awkward hemisphere of the planet is lit. As someone with even a basic grasp of Astronomy would be able to point out, it is impossible for Europe to be illuminated while South Africa lies in darkness.

"I can see my house from here!" :) Anyway, this is way better than the original. I like how it feels oily.

Maybe, just maybe, spread out the star backdrop a bit. I guess it's supposed to be the Milky Way huh?

This is a beautiful illustration. I doubt Dominic flew high enough to get a photo to base this on - though there are obviously plenty of images available from which to draw inspiration.

The detail and color in this picture are marvelous. Enough so that I am almost willing to suspend my disbelief that the earth ever experienced such lighting - at least while there were continents we would recognize on its surface. Indeed, for it to do so the planet would have to fall way off it's axis - to such an extent that it would probably extinguish life as we know it. As well, the climate appears unnaturally dry, with too few clouds for such an obvious water planet. Then again, the orb appears to be lit by moonlight rather than sunlight - or it has drifted far away from the sun somehow, in which case all the water would be frozen and there would be neither precipitation or clouds. Perhaps the picture would be more plausible and raise fewer questions if the continents were more otherworldly. Then again, maybe the artist wanted us to ask questions.

Hi Dominic. Quality work as always. I have only one question, "Did you use a tripod?"

I like the globe and the clarity it has to this picture

The location of the photo I think should have been in the Atlantic, so it would show the Eastern and Western hemisphere.

Space pics are always great, and this is a VERY VERY cool pic, even though I´m not a fan of computer-made pictures.

Is the terminator line accurate ? I mean, it´s supposed to be more north-south orientation, right ? On this pic, Europe and probably even Iceland are lighted from the sunlight while it´s night in most parts of Africa ? I don´t think that´s ever going to happen. (Please correct my if I´m wrong !!)

Is that some sort of sandstorm stretching from Libya to the west coast of Sicily?

This is truly an amazing image... I am stunned. Set it up on all my machines.

Any chance you can make a moon image for the second display?
