This will be my first critique so I hope I will do it good enough. As I promised you I will critique your pieces.
This is really strong in my opinion. The nebula is one of the best I have seen. It has lovely colors and details and wonderful depth. The starfield makes it only better. You can add some more little stars with variety in color and stuff. Making it more busy will combine well with the strong and bright nebula. Thumbs up for the background!
Now a bit of negative words. The parts that are pulling this piece down are the planets. The foreground planet looks really bad. It is in really low quality compared to the quality of the nebula. Some parts are blurred and the clouds look like bad embossed white parts. And the glow is not very well executed. As for the two smaller planets - their textures are a bit dull and their lightning is different which is a bad thing. I think you should change the 3 planets with new ones. Compositionally they are placed nice but their execution is not as well as you can do.
And last I would suggest to remove the border and leave the text as it is.
All in all this is nice picture with great attention to details and composition with a few problems which are easily fixable. Keep it up!
What do you think?

This is the most beautiful space pic i've seen so far, so deep, so peaceful...

I just wanted to warn you. Stay away from me because if I find you, I WILL kill you and eat your heart so that I can harness your ability to create such insane art as this piece you have done.
