    Tried to make an image that I have always failed at, and I may still not be there.

    I always liked the Enterprise as it departed the episode on its way to its next adventure.

    Well, I can hear the outro sting in my head when I see it, so I'd say you're pretty close. :luvlove:

    That is very kind of you! I hope to be a little closer when I finish my Where No Man Has Gone Before version.

    Thanks! That's about as close as I can get to the original. I hope to start work on the WNMHGB version tomorrow.

    The fabulously talented Professor Moriarty posted a spectacular image over here on The Trek BBS IMAGE!

    I cannot imitate his spectacular work, but I wanted to turn out a similar image with my Where No Man Has Gone Before USS Enterprise. It is NOT anywhere near as wonderful as the fantastic Professor's image, but it was fun to do and of course, it was a tip of the imaging hat to the Professor.

    I really like this shot. My one nitpick is the blue on the dorsal is too vivid. I would suggest desaturating that some.

    I know the colours on physical filming miniatures are more vivid than they appear onscreen, possibly due to studio lighting.

    That is a shot of the 1st pilot E we never got to see. Nice!

    While I think that your image is quite superb! (I like yours better!)

    Thank you, my friend!
    Thank you! Good points all around.

    @scifieric - Is it correct to assume that you're adding some grain to age the images? It looks great and gives it a nice blast from the past look. :techman:

    Yep, an old trick. I add some noise, give it a slight blur, then desaturate it a bit (about 50% for this image). And thank you!

    Trying out new software that's a little faster than the old Photoshop I've been using. It will take some adjustments, but we're almost there.

    Very nice! It has a very physical feel to it. I had to stare a bit to remind myself that it is CG. :techman:
