Holy fudge! That's good.

The ships are fabulous! I've never worked in 3D but even I can see the amount of effort that went into this wonderful image. I love the sensation of movement on them too. My sole criticism is of the water in the foreground - if it's still and calm enough to see the reflection of the ship you shouldn't be able to see the rocks on the bottom so clearly (depth of water, transparancy issues, blah). If what I think are rocks are actually waves, the reflection should be blurred (and incidentally I LOVE the reflection). But thats it. Oh, um, and initially the planet in the background reminded me of a bowling ball, but that is purely my slightly warped mind, not you.

pretty! I guess they don't have much atmosphere on that planet. or they wouldn't have such a nice view.

Wow! What a wonderful effect you have achieved! Gorgeous use of colour and lighting... and the detail! It looks gorgeous.
When I take over the world I'll be needing a few of those...
