A New Dawn by Alpha-Element A New Dawn by Alpha-Element
:)!!!!! PLEASE DOWNLOAD FOR THE BEST QUALITY AND DETAIL!!!!!:)

:D!!!!! I RECOMMEND READIND THE DESCRIPTION!!!!!:D

:)!!!!! PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU CAN!!!!!:)



update: added contrast layer, text and a long awaited lens flare!


nothing much of a long description here, did this one this morning- late tonight. rising sun with foreground moon took up most of the time ( about 3 hours). gas giant, nebula, stars and other moons took around 3 hours as well, but were much easier to make than the rising sun and foreground moon.:) fine tunning and addition of ion thrusters took around another hour.:)
also, its the first time i'm creating a rising sun, so give your opinions on how it came out!:D

(AND JUST IN CASE YOUR WONDERING, THE SUN IS SUPPOSED tO BE BLUE!)
;)

the title has 2 meanings:

1) it literally means, a new day or morning on the moon!:)

2) it also means, a new era of technology for the system!:) SPACE TRAVEL!:D hence the ion thrusters!;)

Not bad! Maybe the ringed plnet needs more contrast. Also the ring I think should be a bit lower :) Keep up the good work my friend. Nice calm space scene here which I mostly do and like.

Lovely image. The lightning is very nicely done, however i miss some lens flare. Other than that its very cool.

i'm really glad you like it!:D and the reason no lens flare was used was because the lighting already came out so great, that one wasn't needed! and i know i'm supposed to use one especially for rising and setting suns, but, it just seemed so great already that if i added a lens flare, the image would had come out looking kinda overloaded with elements. but other than that, thanks!:)

It's great. The sun is amazing. In the future I think you should experiment with lens flares, which can be cool if properly used. Anyway, nice job XD

glad you like it!:D and thanks, i guess for a first try, i nailed it!:D oh yeah, just to let you know, i already know about and use lens flares, but for this piece i decided not to use one and see how it turned out!:) i think it turned out great! but due to demand, i'll see what i can do and try to add one!:)

I love it, however... being someone that cannot make images like this ;) I am qualified to critique it...lol

To me it is great, and each element is superb in it's own right, it just seems too busy. There is too much going on for the eye to rest on. I am assuming the sunrise is the central subject, but the planets and especially the nebula rob its glory. And I didn't even notice the ships until I read your comments.

Its like being in a crowded room and everyone is singing the most beautiful music, but each person is singing a different song.

Trust me I know what it is like to work hard on an image just to have some stranger tell you what is wrong with it. This is just my opinion however.
