Proteus - 8 I'd love some feedback on why you gave mine a 4. Your picture is brilliant by the way, I love that red and black tone, and the dark vibe it gives off, great job! That brown dwarf behind the ship is great, although it isn't in a great position.


I based all my votes on depth of lighting, between the ship and its surroundings (as you can see, that is the main theme I went with in my submission). In your piece, the aurora there is nice, but the way your ship looked in the shot was very lacking in that sense. There was no depth, or even an opportunity to see any details of the ship. It doesn't really look like a shadow either, since its not really dark, it more just looks like a flat grey shape that sort of clashes with the rest of the image. Otherwise, I like the inclusion of the aurora and the position of where the ship is among it, anyway.

something that doesn't look fiction

Literally everything here, aside from the Hubble shot, looks like fiction, because they all depict ships that don't exist mostly in places that we've never been. Last I checked, the Cygnus Xg-1 Starwing didn't exist outside of a few video games, yet it was your vehicle of choice rolleyes

Haha I know, but not too fiction, like the Doctor who box, or one of those massive editor ships somehow floating in atmosphere. I don't mean mostly technology fiction as that could change in the next thousand years or so, but physics fiction as well, for example: Can a ship really exist here?

I sort of see where you are going with this especially with the depth. However my ship wasn't supposed to be the stand out theme of the picture, it was supposed to be dark and blend in with the rest of the shot. Even if it does look like a grey shape, you are suppose to know that it is a ship and that it is hiding in the dark side of the planet. The sun is directly behind it, which gives it that silhouette look, I didn't want the bright sun rays ruining the whole dark theme of the picture. If It had been it's original white color it wouldn't have fit into the scene and looked out of place.

However thanks for the feedback Proteus, I understand your reasoning now: More depth and focus on the challenge theme. Good luck with the challenge!
