Haha, I'm gonna have to start charging you for these requested critiques :lol: But sure, why not...Though I'll admit I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel here since there isn't too many problems.

The lighting on the planets is pretty good overall. The smaller one's "dark side" is darker than the close one, but I would have made that the other way around. But then you have more atmosphere at the bottom too, so that will cancel out some of the shadow, so that's a touchy subject where scientific accuracy collides with artistic appeal. But for art's sake - having the further planet's dark side a bit fainter might give the effect of more depth (even though space is "clear" so there wouldn't be much difference-but it may just look nicer)

The landscape seems a bit too contrasted in my opinion, a less-hasrh difference betwene dark and light may look nicer. I could easily do that in Vue, but have no idea with Terragen, so your'e on your own with that :(

Overall it looks cool! especially those massive machines on the far planet! 8-)

Wow, just amazing! I love the brilliant colors of the night you have in this piece. And those are mountains right? Lovely! I would say keep up the good work on your pieces, you're very talented at what you do! :D So, it must be a mind control or something going on here? Cause that's what i was thinking. I wish i could make such lovely works as yourself. The quality of this piece is so breathtaking i haven't seen such wonderful quality in a while to be honest. The shades of blue all around make it seem like such a calm piece, Again i must say LOVELY! Keep up the good work! :)
