Feedback neaded for my piece

Hi, I’m doing this piece for the CGBoost Space Carrier Challenge. My idea is to present a rare specie of snail that carries a galaxy in their shell. I was also inspired by the scene with the bioluminescent water in Life of Pi.
I would like some feedback and critic to improve my work. I am questinning myself if it is readable and if the story / setup is clear.

Thanks a lot!

Here is where I am at the moment :

Without compositing :

I think it’s a great idea, kind of reminds me of the Cat in MIB. The snails and shells look really nice, but the galaxies are not looking right, it looks like an S. The backjground is not right either, the huge overpowering moon is drawing the eye away, I would get rid of it entirely,

push the camera in more, and really get to see more of the galaxy.
