The space scenes are the most clicked on in the Sci-Fi gallery, so I will be adding more planetary images. They will probably remain in the sci-fi gallery, as the scaling and positioning of even the most realistic scenes, will still be dictated by composition more than reality.
This is a combination of two images. Terragen can't yet add the smoke and debris, so I did that part in Bryce. Which came out so well, it made me want to redo the Terragen part, but I had to stop playing somewhere.
Bryce 5's trees refused to work the way I wanted, so I used complex models in the solid glass spheres instead. This turned out to be a mistake. Due to the intense reflection depth rendering, this took a week to render.
