Now this is the kind of quality I like to see in a digital composition.

Nothing I'd change. I wouldn't change anything. Me no change.

The sky looks great. Lightning effect is awesome too.

However, this planet submerged into clouds looks very odd. A planet within a planet!? It's not realistic. I think it should be either removed or replaced by a plane or an alien ship such as the one in District 9 movie :D

Dominic, I was hoping this would be voted through the loupe.
I visited your website and already downloaded it. In layman's terms, I love this image. Another great creation. Bravo.

The image is perfect the way it is........in my opinion.

Love it! but please make one with a planet against a background of deep dark space filled with beautiful stars! :D youre awesome!

the image is fine- but i hope that doesnt make you "laid back" so you don't create my ideal picture ;)

What a spectacular view !
Great theme for a digital composition and this scene is kind of lifting my desktop up in the sky - as if I'm looking straight through an airplane window ! ;-)

I think the colour of the globe's atmosphere doesn't fit with the lighting. The ambient clouds have a soft and purple touch while the globe seems to look too clear and blue (white balance ?).
Other than that a very respectable and flawless artwork !

This is an attractive image - if you can suspend your disbelief.

I admit, though, that I don't get the astrophysics of it. Clouds require an atmosphere. An atmosphere requires a planet os significant mass. I can't imagine how another planet could be suspended within that atmosphere - it defies what we know of gravity. I guess if you don't know anything about physics all this might not matter. But there are just too many incongruous elements in this picture for my taste.

Der Vorlagenimagebildner behauptet seine Bescheinigungen wieder.

This is amazing stuff. I love it!

People, people, please. This is a fantasy composition. If you want reality look at some NASA images. It is the very incongruity and surreality of this composition that knocks the viewer back in his or her chair. What do you want: a Boeing 747 or perhaps the Concorde instead of a planet? More, more, more.

Physics is irrelevant in this matter, its Art. This is a GREAT piece of work.

I wouldn't change it regardless of how many physicists tell you that this scenario is unrealistic. Thats why it works as a composition.

Fabulous. I am working on an apocalyptic novel, and you keep coming through with inspiration for me!

I have no improvements to suggest, except that I want more.

Thanks guys, I couldn't have phrased it better! I'm glad you like it.

I'm currently working on a new wallpaper - something starry... ;-)

This is exactly what i look for in a digital composite image. I don't understand the comments regarding the physics of what is, to me, a surrealist image. It needs no explanation, it is simply a fantastic work of art. Superb.

I would not make any alterations to this image at all. It is a fantastic example of what is an extremely difficult genre to do correctly.

All the science and physics aside this looks phenomenal and realistic in surreal way. I really like this a lot.

Surreal digital art does not have to follow any scientific rules. I have done a few radical pieces such as this. There is nothing I would change here. I think everything works in harmony here. Thanks for sharing and uploading this beauty Dominic! Cheers

Awesome, like Igor above, I think digital art like this doesn't have to follow any specific scientific laws, because its art!

It is just right, doesn't need any changes, thanks for this great pic.

Hm, i have to say, i don't think this needs any changes. ;)

oh, was that already mentioned? my bad. in all seriousness, though, it's a fabulous image.

Clouds are amazing, looks great on wide screen monitor.

Any way to get this photo without the silly planet?

great digital composition everthing is very well done

i think it could have used a slight swirling of the clouds around the planet to give the perception of the planet revolving.

I think it's just the type of a planet we're arguing about... If it was the moon, meteorite or even a floating island from Avatar, I bet no one would mention anything about astro physics. In this case, we have a planet with the atmosphere. You can notice that clouds in the background do not really match the clouds on the planet in 2 ways. First, there's a pretty obvious color contrast btw two. Second, there's an issue with scaling and proportionality. So, even if you'd like to make it right, the clouds on the background would cover the whole planet.

In conclusion, I just think that inserting a planet w/ an atmosphere wasn't a really good idea in this context.

It was cool, I liked your image, and have it 1080p on my computer, 1280x800 on my laptop and 1024x1024 on my xperia x10, and never read your comment about what inspired it, then I was watching Star Trek AGAIN, lol, And thought, Wait a minute!! I like yours better.. Physics Shmizicks, those people are reet - ART - ed... Lol :)

Perfect, I love how clean and clear it is at 1080p, thanx for the eye candy.

This is beautiful; so crisp and stimulating! The details are amazing.

I only wish there were a version without the sun flare, which I am not a fan of in wallpapers.

I just now noticed that the continent you used on earth is a reverse of North America. California is the opposite of Florida. Not a complaint, but just my detailed eye. Great wallpaper! I am using it right now. :)
