This is my submission for the Exotika contest. I used Apophysis 2.04 for the "nebula" (whatever it may be, use your imaginations, after all, that's what most of space is!), Photoshop for the planet, starfield, shooting star, etc., and Bryce for the mountains and water. It took AGES to figure out how to work Bryce...very large learning curve if you ask me! It's still not the way I want it, but it'll have to do, I don't have time for another 7 hour render. :-P
Anyway, I hope you like it! Critisism (both nonconstructive and constructive) welcome!
Thanks for looking!
