This is it. In theory, the final version of a hero graphic for the website (and splashscreen of an app) I am currently working on. A gently different approach, which seems to work better and is about to be the finish one after some different versions.

There's a cognitive conflict in the composition.
The sphere and the way it is lit imply it's a planet in space. And then it happens to sit against flat background with a large button (implying the background is pretty close). This doesn't make much conventional sense, so perhaps this is why this feels forced.
@Alex Pankratov This is probably a silly question, but is that even a button? I got the impression it was just a badge. Maybe if he removes the shadow from behind it, it won't feel like it's resting on the background?
@Alex Pankratov and @Aaron C-T: Thanks for the comments. It is a little bit forced, I am fully aware of this. The "button" is actually an icon for the website/blog I used for my diploma thesis a lot in different coherences like app icons. Its not a button or anything interactive in this case. At the end of the day its just a teaser graphic or illustration, which has the task to put the viewer in the right direction, or just make him curious enough to take a look at it.
