Ooo... this is awesome too!

however, i'm not sure the perspective is right on the planet rings - to me they look to be too thin round the sides of the planet compared to the front. This is just my opinion... the aork is truely superb!! :D

Nice impact, I suspect that in an airless environment there'd be significantly less smoke and fire than if there was lots of nasty reactive oxygen floating around, so this looks good... :)

What should I say ... stunning and kicks-ass as usual :)

And I'm still wondering how such stuff is possible in Photoshop ...

Awesome per total. Perfectly done nebula... the rusty impression is great...
The meteor hitting the planet/moon below though doesn't look too good...

You may have had a lack of inspirational touch on this one, but it still looks great!

i think work is needed on the bottom... sort of dissapointing as it loads...

I think the explosion on the bottom left could use some work, but the star/cloud work througout the top is really amazing!

I think everything is awesome except for that impact of the comet. The blast looks kinda funny. The dust ring is great though.

Great work, dude. You really nailed it. Most people are always forgetting that space is dark and make their scenes ridiculously bright, but I like how you handled this, especially the dust at the top of the image.

I like the impact to a degree; the dust-shockwave is great and well done, but maybe the impacting comet or whatever it is could fragment a little, itself? It looks a little too... intact to be impacting and throwing up debris and making a dust-shockwave.

But great image, dude, a favorite definitely.

The idea of dust coming out of the impact on a moon is simply and absolutely correct :D
The realization is great as usual, I would have changed the colours of the debris maybe...darker, less light and a bit of flame trail? Dunno...great work anyhow :)

I must say... this is a great work of art... yes, maybe a little more explosion in the impact would have been better, but nobody's perfect :)

I love the contrast! The smoke around the impact crator is great. Yet the impact itself, imho, is missing a bit more 'explosion'. :]
Where's teh fiyaaa!! Great work!

I really like how you bring us really close to the impact. I also agree with Alyn, the smoke is incredibly nice, and the feeling of 3D is definitly there.
The nebula at the top is also well done, but the planet ring may appear a little uniform. But anyway, that's just really about picking on an already great image.
Take a break, you've deserved it.

I think the piece is intensly good up until that impact which looks reaally weird, I think it looks like the comet is just drifting into that whole, not even impacting or anything.
