Orion rednered in tS6, Earth rendered in MAX, stars and image composition done in Photoshop 6. :D

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Not bad. Lose the text-wrap, it fills me with the urge to kill.

As a practice, either can be done well, and come out looking equally cool.

The text makes it look like a poster for a Jerry Bruckheimer film. :ick

Otherwise, cool. :)

Actually, I like the text. :) Simple can be good, but I find that in terms of renders, the best ones are a balance of the two.

Oh, and maybe it's me, but that Orion seems to be crying out for some subtle bump-mapping next to that ultra-realistic Earth. Looks like plastic in comparison, if you know what I mean. ;)

I hate him. Really, I do. He's going to force me to spend money to upgrade to a larger HDD, I just know it. It's inevitable. :hopping:

i like how you did a thumbnail too, so as not to mess up the borders of us low-res users pages and not posting a big image so as to screw over us 56Kers ;)

very good!
