another space scene, the title sucks yet I couldn't think of any better in less than ten secs though.
The blue star is much bigger and brighter than the red one, but is further away. The sizes and brightess of that star would not be realistic, 100 million times brighter and 400 times heavier than our sun, which would be impossible in reality since the star would blow itself apart instantly.
resolution is the same 6144 times 4096 px 300 dpi.

Cool, and I can only imagine how bright the scene would be if the blue star was as close as the red one. When I hear about such massive and boiling stars that put our sun to shame, I can't help but wonder what it would be like to live under one, in the "habitable zone" (which would have to be incredibly far from it :star:)

yeah, well I like to go crazy on big and powerful sources of energy. If you were put our sun side to side with that one, you would have to make the big one about 10000 pixels wide, and our sun would still only be a dot of 1 pixel. There are some amazingly big stars in the universe, some reach 2000 times the radius of the sun, yet they "only" weigh 100 times more. The habitable zone for such a star would be 2000 further away than we are, (2000 AUs or astronomical units) which is about 1/30th of a lightyear.
Needless to say, that would be very far away, and almost the entire solar system would be engulfed by such a star (the planets who would not immediately be engulfed would still be vaporized quickly), were it to replace out sun.

Actually, I thought the title gave the image a nice framework. It's part of what drew me in. But from reading your comments it's clear that you have an understanding of the reality of your chosen subject, and I think that's what allows your work to stand above the rest.

Well done.
