AurorePlanet by Swaroop AurorePlanet by Swaroop
This is a planet whose ..(just like our we always see only one side of the moon from earth...only one hemisphere of this planet always faces its 'sun'....so....one side is hot....and other side is frigid as u can see....

Done with gimp,

Thanks to Duskblue for teaching me the 'lens apply' technique.....cool changing refractive index!!!!

Time taken = 38mins,
Software used: totally gimp!

The inspiration for this picture is this picture! [link]

Hey Swaroop what i'll suggest is to get a bit of smooth touch to these otherwise great pics.

Well Done Man.
I m unable To install gimp on my Mac as it says it requires X11 which i am downloading right now.

Wow, nice planet. I think the part between sun and coldness has an eternal dawn (aurore in french) ;)
And I like a lot the bright starfield and the little sun, that looks much more realistic than mine :D
