Some sort of a telecommunications satellite in geostationary orbit, just firing two of the four OMS/RCS (orbital maneuvering system / reaction control system), 110-newton (25 pound) vernier engines to stabilize the spacecraft. The apogee kick motor is cold, the antennae mounted on the de-spun platform.
Lighting looks good. Flames look a bit iffy. If you could bulk up your detail on the model then I think you'd be onto a winner. I've seen quite a few space scenes in bryce and this is getting pretty close to being the best as far as the atmosphere is concerned. Oh, and I like the composition, but I feel that it should either over lap the edges of the box (post effect) or be a little bit further into the pic - just a bit too close to the edges for comfort if you know what I mean.

I'm not so sure about the details, I didn't want more. As for the placement of the satellite, I fully agree. Bad habit of mine to press it in the frame withought giving it enough room to breath - or cut part of it off. I've got to keep that in mind.

good job but if the parabol was in tetanium it will be better ; )
