I think the vignetting is a bit strong... otherwise, fantastic by my eye.

Like this Gen?
I like it better actually, the planet is less distracting and more part of the landscape!

Thanks for the good words guys
Working away still, not long to go!

The large Planet looks awesome <3! I think you could have kept the texture on the smaller ones and make it more subtle if you were to use a SSS shader to fake an atmospheric glow (if they even have atmospheres that is). I see you changed the color grading and I'm torn on that one ><. The last one had a desert planet feel to me.
