Well, I have worked on the background some more and added a different picture. I suppose if I knew how, but more importantly a desire to learn how, to do dynamics for a star field it would help. But honestly, I have no desirte to learn it. I just do this to entertain myself and take up time. So learning things to improve my portfolio is certainly something I have no need for. As dynamics don't come up in anything I model really.
I have taken a little more time with this update, and think I kind of like it for now, but still have some modeling to do and I will spend more time on it soon.
Hammer, I am very glad you suggested the yellow and black stripes. I proably would not have thought of that! I had stopped the render I was doing and added them. Nice touch! Thanks!!!
Also, my girlfriend saw the information pads I have by the sliding doors in the bay and said they looked 'Hokey', a very old term for looks cheap. I will work on that and maybe make a hand recognition type pad. Will work to make it right!!
If anyone is curious. I had found a nice .jpg from the Hubble Telescope and it was larger than 2000 X 2000. I took that in HDR Shop and under IMAGE I select EFFECTS and at the bottom is DXC9000 Curve. Don't have a clue how it works. But in a tutorial I had done I learned of it. Won't make a true HDR, but it will certainly improve the .jpg very much in color depth and then you can save it as a HDR, I use a floating point .tif.
Once again, I do appreciate your thoughts!!

Challenge me and I will try. Because If I should fail, failure also has a prize (Knowledge).
