Glorious. That has to be without a doubt the most difficult golf course on the face of whatever planet its on. But the golf course idea is on the beginning of how great this work actually is. From the nebulae clouds down to each individual crevice on the planet, its simply a true work of space art.

First off, the detail placed in this image is superb. You can almost see every texture, every crack, and every curve on the landscape. Its truly something wonderful. The planets in the background really set the space scene without appearing tacked on or added in. The large planet does a great job in showing the overall scale of the scene.

The atmosphere used in the image is a prime example of what outer space should look like. The nebulae clouds have great detail, although in some cases they appear a little grainy or over sharpened, but that can be ignored. The clouds in the atmosphere really bring out the light from the distant stars making the entire sky that much more of a spectacle.

All in all, this is another great piece made by DeviantArt's own ^gucken. His pieces have always been great additions to the space-art genre. Good work man.

I've been browsing through your work as I'm very new to it and it's been a proper collection of ups and downs! The concept of the golfer on the planet is an entertaining one, it brings a level of "putting yourself in their place", which does bring the viewer one step closer to feeling the power behind the picture.

One thing I have noticed with this image, and a large number of your others, is that you seem to want to fill every possible part of the picture with a new detail, event etc; often a back ground nebula, extra planet etc. Whilst the detail is truly appreciated, a lot of the pictures would still work [and possibly be easier for the viewer to look at] if they were removed. For example with this image in particular, if the planet in the "mid"ground, and the blue dust cloud in the top right were removed, the picture would still potentially work, and there wouldn't be as many split focal-points. The golfer could potentially be seen as an after thought that you had just placed on the image once it was built.

I did enjoy the mix of a harsh looking landscape, coupled with a relaxed golfer! Also, the detailed shot highlighting exactly where the ball was was a life saver.

A large number of your images are breath-taking at the start, but fall away slightly after further examination. The reason I assessed this picture is because it seemed one of the biggest culprits of having extra details put in that just seem to be an attempt at making it more...interesting. Sea Onel I was first drawn to because it had less of this and I found it a lot more absorbing.

On a more positive note, if this image was blown up and spread across my bedroom wall, I wouldn't be displeased. I think the benefit to having such a large number of focal points in an image really becomes acceptable when the image is actually huge. (Obviously that requires heavy attention to detail in case anyone examines the picture up close, but from what I've seen, I'd expect you to be able to put that necessary detail in.)

Oh! Nearly forgot, up the top right of the picture, there is a noticeable horizontal line of a change in tone.

No words can describe the feeling I get when I look at this masterpiece. WOW! WHOA! WEEWAAHH!! It's just spectacular! I might have to buy a print and hang it up on my wall.

Again, WOW! Might I ask, how much accrued time did you spend on this one?

thank you very much! this piece took me a long time to finish it up, as terragen was involved in this as well.
the photoshop part took me about 20 hours on and off. rendering in terragen took me about another 20 hours, I think :)
