What an amazing looking object. Being a bit of a sci-fi fan myself, your choice of title is perfect. I look forward to seeing how this scores. Good luck

It's that sphere again! This does look very futuristic and has its own fisheye effect too. The skyline reflection is good and of course the blue skies and nice fluffy clouds are too. The people make it a little snapshotty but not necessarily in a bad way. The reflection of the people looks neat.
