The Rise of a Planet

Finally a real description for this picture. It started with a photo that I made on my first trip with my cam. But soon I recognized that this photo doesn't fit in right. And instead of deleting it, I created a new, a black, layer. And then just playing arround with with photoshop. The clouds are really confusing and a mixture of many cloudphotos and some brushwork.
I know that this pic lacks of quality but it's one of my first space pics every and it's my most famous one. During the last month I've been trying to improve this deviation. Without success. I think it's like a ban.

I'm happy that so many people around the world anyway like this picture and I want to thank you a lot for your attention and feedback.

The Rise of a Planet - a superbly atmospheric piece by ~taenaron here, the rising planet gives the image an enormous sense of scale and scope. I just love the vibe that this wallpaper gives off. ( Suggested by gucken and Featured by zilla774 )
