Wow... Just, wow. This is spectacular. Amazing work. This is definitely going to be my next desktop wallpaper, Lol. I'd like your permission to use this picture as my background for my chatroom sometime; if not, that's fine. I'm going to be asking permission for a lot of pictures, Lmao.
I totally agree with Darkpeter, the first thing that came to mind when I looked at this was the nebula looks like a bird. Thinking of it that way gives the scene a sense of mystery and fantasy that, for me, completely makes everything come to life. I really feel like I can interpret my own story from this image. Truely amazing work!!
