Howzabout this for the lighting?

Re: Comparing Notes at the San Francisco Yards

mmmm, nah. Go back to the first image but increase the intensity of the space dock "floods" shining on the Endeavour. So it shows through better.

And Great Googly those look like physical models! What are you using to render?

Re: Comparing Notes at the San Francisco Yards

Just the stock Lightwave renderer. I have started doing more and more adjustment in Photoshop after the render is completed, though, which is a big help. I also credit Final Gather radiosity for giving a little extra pop, and saving my renders as high dynamic range .exr files so I have the most control possible in Photoshop.

Here it is with another lighting setup. No high res version so far, since I still haven't taken care of my new website problem, because I am lazy. Personally, I like the original version more.

Re: Comparing Notes at the San Francisco Yards

Well, for me, the 1st. looks like it's being influenced by, say the sun just peaking around the earth. The 2nd. looks more like what I'd expect to see if the ships/dock were in earth's shadow. Both look great to me. I'd like to see a high res. version of the 2nd. too. Right now, the 1st. is my desktop image on my home PC. Great job!
