All these worlds...

Though I am missing a bit more bumpiness of the rocks on the right a cool scene.
For the glittering diamond look on the left there could be even a bit more glow and starburst effect.

A totally hypothetical planet of van Maanen's Star, the nearest single White Dwarf star. A White Dwarf is a tiny ,,end of lifetime"-stage of a sunlike star, after the ,,Red Giant"- stage. The sun itself will reach this stage as a stellar remnant in about 5 billion years from now.

This hypothetical planet survived the Red Giant stage of his host star, burnt nearly to ashes, partially melted and lost most of its atmosphere, blown into space.

An imaginary earth-like planet with two big moons. This world is in its early Proterozoic Era, like earth some 2.5 billion years ago. First lifeforms are evolving, metabolizing and enriching the planets atmosphere with oxygen.

The water of a shallow tidal pond is full of bacterias similar to cyanobacterias on earth, covering first local stromatolites and the shore with thick slimy carpets.

Woah, yeah! Foreground texturing is great.

Second that, the detail looks great in the texturing. It's actually hard to really pick out any vanilla looking PFs.

Cool color scheme! Very alien indeed.

Acid extraterrestrial look! Great! (Though I never would bath my feet in that liquid!)  :)

Another space art render:
CM Draconis, a real existing double star system of two faint red dwarfs in the constellation of the dragon, about 47 light years away. These two closely neighboring stars in turn orbit around a distant white dwarf star.  The whole triple system is about twice as old as the sun.
I created a hypothetical small, cold, Mars-like planet. Billions of years ago, the existing water transformed into ice and formed a landscape like the Antarctic dry valleys of the Earth. As the eons passed, the atmosphere dissolved almost entirely. Here it is about as bright as on an overcast winter's day, so the brightest stars can be seen even during the day. The bright star to the left above the center of the image is the white dwarf. It is about as bright as Venus in the Earth's sky.

My favorite. Love the lighting in the sky and surfaces. Love the twisting/fractalization of the base surface.

Dune

Yes, this is a great terrain and lighting. I'm glad we only have one sun, or you'd feel drunk all the time :P

Fractal, surreal, abstract, the main thing is not everyday like the bread roll with liver cheese from the sausage stand around the corner, although it is of course great that there are sausage stands without which the social bustle would come to a standstill ;)
