I like the general composition of II better, but I do think the sky and clouds in I are much better.

Compositionally the second is better.

Number 1. Looks more natural to me, thus more realistic. :)

the stars in number two is what did it for me. It had a more "natural" feel of space than in number one

The second is beautiful too, but i think the first one was better, more "powerful" clouds and atmosfera :)
Bye God! :D

Though both are incredible pieces, I think the second version better plays on the sense of realism. I feel like I'm looking at a photograph.

I prefer 2 in the closeup detail, but 1 looks better in smallview.

I voted for the first one just because I like the atmosphere of the picture more than the second. Though, the clouds in the second one look better than in the first, so it was quite a tough choice to make actually. :) Both are nice

Yeah I guess you're right, I've been very busy lately and I'm now in the middle of my exams but I managed to produce some things. They are not yet finished though :P

Number II. Both are very nice, but the first one is more (a little too) "theatrical" and maybe a little bit overdramatical. Maybe the first one is nicer "per se", but given the sci-fi theme, i like the second, wich is colder.

I think the blacks match up better on the second one and the horizon line works better flatter. The seconds better in almost every respect for me.

I'd definitely say II because it seems like the clouds blend together better in that one. :)

Nice job! :D

I like the clouds in the old one more than in the new one: they seem to be clearer, and richer in texture (the new ones seem a bit to soft to me). And to me it feels a bit cramped with the clouds fading away in the new picture.

The new picture is stronger technically, it has a better balance and feel more like a coherent piece.
But to me it misses a bit of the clarity and wideness of the original (lighter background, a bit more texture in the clouds + the litle cluster of stars on the left of the planet).

Just trying to help ;)
I like them both tho :), otherwise I wouldn't have added them to my favorites :p

I cannot call that one.
In the first one, the stars came out better, I think. The planet is also rendered a little better. However, the clouds look too busy and a bit too random. It's like an over use of the clone tool and it's a bit distracting.

In the second the clouds are much better. They add to the scene, but they don't dominate it. They don't swamp the tree either. I'm devided on the size of the planet, both a large planet and a smaller one seem to work in their own way. The sky for the second looks a little dead though. It's a plain black sky with a few stars that don't stand out as much as the first. The mist is a bit too little.

See, I like both in different ways. I didn't vote for in the poll because I'm straight down the middle. The pros of each are evenly matched against the cons.

The second one feels cleaner. The title of the piece is 'The Rise of a Planet' but the first one distracted from that with extraneous details in the sky and on the ground. The second one is much smoother, and more visually appealing to me, with the focus clearly on the centerpiece.

I like #2 because it looks more comfortable to look at....the clouds in #1 seems to over power the scene.

I never liked the first one, and you intentionally made the second one very similar in feel, so I don't much love that one either, but the new one is definitely better overall.

I voted No.2 because I think it would look AWESOME for website backgrounds and the like. Although if I were gonna buy a print, I'd choose No.1. :)

Both are stunning (this black landscape in the bottom part of picture is great), but II looks a bit better to me ;) I think it's more expressive.
