"Very Very Far from uor space an 11 billion years old crystals was discovered. Some scientists think they could be part of an hyperspace gate of a very very old Alien lifeform"

Rendered at 1200*750 with 0.75 quality in 170 hours on a 3.6 ghz
(Edit: Added in pw sharpen pass and clarify filter)

Nebula was "Lagoon Croman" added with maydamason techincs also on transuceny layer (thanks to May:) )

Big blue Moon was entirely water covered.

Crystals was deformed rock objects with image map shader and reflective layers
The different reflection colours of "crystals" was because here there was two sun here.

It was a really pain render this: i tried for 2 months to render it in 1600*1000@0.9, but the result was still a crash in lower left part, sometimes also after 300 hours of render :( Tried also to render in small crop parts but the lower left didnt matched with the rest of render)
Hope you like it
and sorry to be less present in the gallery
(Deep 1st and 2nd quarter at work..)
Kind Regards,

WOW!!!!At finally I can see this "render-pain"!!!LOL
Wonderful landscape, what I love most is the water and the light reflect on it!!!Stunning the sky too!...but I don't know is crystals are so important to make you work on this render so much time...I think it would be wonderful also without them...IMO..
Anyway stunning work dear and nice to see you back!!!KissXX
