A remarkable piece that has both an appealing color scheme as well as a good composition. The rocks are formed in a fairly unnatural way giving the image, with the colors, an alien atmosphere that works really well in here. Also, these rocks are nicely painted out; not too heavily detailed so that they do not take away from the subject.

Speaking of the subject, it is in a nice contrast to the background, really helping to bring it out. Sadly, it is not as detailed as it could have been. Seeing that this is the main focal point of the image, it should contain a little more details to give the viewer the chance to study the ship a little closer.

Value-wisely, it feels like the full spectrum has not been used. The darks are not entirely black whilst the brights are not entirely white. I guess, bumping up the levels could help increasing the contrasts and make the image appear less washed out. If you are, instead, going for that washed-out-look, you could also try to overlay some "artifacts", similar to the speckles and scratches often seen in old photos.

To help bringing in a bit more dynamics, it could look nice with some particles flying around. For example, the ship could have those close to the exhaust or some could have been blown onto the lens (or are hovering closely in front of it).

Overall, a really neat piece. Keep up the nice work! :thumbsup:

simple but damn effective - few details but rich in content - that is the sign of skill!

same thing as before, make ship BIGGERRR

all that background stuff is just background, that ship is your money shot in the image, it should take up much more canvas space

The composition I've gone with here is the composition I intended. If you don't like it, I'm sorry. I won't make the ship bigger since it would ruin my story for the pic.

cant take C&C eh?

I had a very similar picture with a similar composition with two points of interest vieing for viewers interest, I was C&C'd to donwplay one and size up the other, and it drastically improved the image, I beleive the same could be achieved with this compositon, right now there just isn't much going on it

I don't know. What's C&C?

Yeah that might have been the case in your case. However, I've tried with a bigger ship, I also sized it down. Many things were changed and changed back when I did this because I thought the original composition was, in my opinion, better. Again, I'm sorry if you don't like it because I do :P

lol I forgot this was DA and not conceptart.org where you would improve much more, C&C is comments & criticism, and I forgot most people don't even know what criticism is on DA

I understand your critique and I'm thankful that you take time to write it, sorry if my comments was too rough or something. :)
Thing is that you said it when it was a sketch aswell, so I tried it while rendering but didn't think it was improving the image. (You can actually see my reply on your other comment: [link])
If this would have been a pic you had ordered the case would have been different but now it isn't.
I did listen to your critique but I didn't feel that it was helpful. There is a slight difference there, mate.

keep it how it is.
It works perfectly now. Increasing the size of the ship, I think, will only waste space in the piece.

Background is beautiful by the way :)
