Cosmos XI by RedXen Cosmos XI by RedXen
Another one down.

Note: I don't think DA likes the fact that it's a 3MB+ PNG. If the image preview isn't showing up for you - Click "Download Image".

Some edits:
- Removed 1px star-fields; better sense of scale
- Added more, larger stars.
- Adjusted light and shadows - Can you tell the differences? :P

Update: I hadn't logged into DA since last Monday and BAM - 2,500+ Notifications. My jaw kinda dropped lol. Thanks dreamwa1ker and Voyager212! Everyone else, I'm glad you enjoy the piece! :)

What did you use to make the nebula? Did you use a program such as apohysis or was it all done in photoshop? Or did you use cloud stock? It's really awesome!

It's about as easy as finding a photo of any kind that has a good color mix and adding a max Gaussian blur lol.

I love the colors of the bottom half of the picture. The top half seems like too light be in space, it looks more like dawning day on a regular ol' sky. That distracts me a bit if I think this should be cosmos.
