Neat image composition and a neat postwork style departure. We don't often see you taking the "repurposing" root to assembling a scene so at first I totally didn't recognize this as yours :) The Helios' work great as "tech towers", though I wonder if you should have flipped the Nostromo upside down to improve the illusion?

Thanks :) The seed of this image started out as an experiment in foreground masking - making it easy to render objects on and behind the rock formation. Initially I had the astronaut looking in wonder at the Helios as it passed over, but the "story" simply didn't work. Purely by accident I rotated the Helios and it fell into place as a tower. The Nostromo was the only model I could think of that fitted the scale of the scene. I tried adding some colour to the engines but don't think they work very well Whilst it's not my best image by any stretch of the imagination I am proud of the little bits; I modelled the "Lynx"name plate and light beams in Lightwave rather than attempting them in Photoshop.
Flipping the ship is a masterful idea !!
