Can you do a spiral-galaxy? That would really fit as image #1.

Sorry if i misinterpreted the comment
and the hue/saturation will be fixed or explained.

as for the spiral picture it has been added.

I know that you probably wont care but with your picture i would recommend less of a twirl and pinch it to give it some depth. also maybe crop the picture a bit
