Somebody I feel lonesome like this planet

After a long time (in fact a couple of months) I have created some new work .......... nothing special but I like how the nebula came out and the colors ...... I think I did a small step ahead I like it a lot :)

Comments and critiques appriciated

You asked for comments/critiques and to be honest I always find it hard to think of much beyond "wow, that's gorgeous and why can't I create something like that!?" but I'll give it a go and please forgive me if it isn't very constructive or helpful.

The nebula is the main focus of this picture and you've achieved that 100%, it is beautiful both in colour, lighting, detail and movement, I love the flowing curling motion that seems not quite cloud-like but not quite gas, as though there is some solid mass to the nebula but it's constantly changing.
The starscape is also very good, I like the detail of the vivid stars towards the edged and then being overcast by the nebula in the centre so that only the brightest stars show through.

I like the detail on the planet and the star flare just peeking out from behind it. My only critique/suggestion to this piece is the planet itself, where it is in light you have a 3D appearence but it quickly fades into black and becomes flat. If you gave the planet a 'halo' around the circumference to suggest light play on an atmosphere or magnetization from the nebula then you would create a much greater 3D spherical effect; as it is the dark side of the planet just seems flat compared to the rest of the picture.
