Really liked your planets. Only critique is to maybe apply a slight blur to the stars so they wont look too solid.

Johnny. Thank you and your right, the stars should have a slight blur.

unfortunately I'll need to find a different way to create the star field. for mine, I used a white background, set it to dissolve and turned the opacity and fill way down. apparently the diffuse hase no effect on the layer made that way.

Steve,
Try gausian blur at about .03 on whole image then remove it from the planets.

I think, the planets and the Milky Way were very well done! The stars, apart from looking too solid, seems to me, are too equal in size and brightness, I think, there should be just a little bit more difference. And I, speaking for my person, would have taken only three of the planets.

Try this tutorial for creating a starry background. Maybe you can adapt it to fit your needs.

HI, It is a very appealing and moody picture. My first impression was: wow.
And a compliment for asking crituque. When I pause longer with the picture I see everything is crisp sharp. It can benefit frorm some variaton in size and depth. `Maybe a nebula here and there? I read you already got good advice and tips regarding to that side of the picture.
Overall:well done and maybe this is the start of a serie.

Thank you all for the compliments and especially the tips on the stars. I thought also that they were to crisp and uniform. Have tried several other aproaches and so far am having difficulty blending them in.

I May just leave this one as is and start with a new one concentrating on a truly random start field.

JJ, did you mean to put a link in your message as I didn't find one.?
==========================================
JR, thanks for the idea but I'd like to do it all myself as to the effects. It's my way of learning.


again to all. Thank you
