I thought I would try a space scene and try some of my own advise I was given others. The thrusters are cylinders with the plasma fire from the materials exchange with some slight adjustments in the material lab and the lazier is the same but with the color changed to red and the explosion is also some spheres with the plasma mat adjusted to a lighter density. A little blur from CS2 on the first space craft.
Added a few colored radials for effect and some slanted terrains. The spaceship is a free model from Turbo Squid
I also took out the red planet that was on the wrong side of the clouds with CS2 as I new Horo would have spotted it. Ha
I'd certainly had... Nice detail that the chaser missed the chased. If you want to have planets on the right side of the clouds - assuming you use the clouds from the sky lab that are at 'infinite' distance - make the planet slightly transparent so that the clouds shine through it. In such a light and sky as in this picture, the planet would have to appear low contrast.

Interesting light. It almost looks like an IBL. Nice feeling of movement and drama. Nice work once again!

I thought I posted a reply but forgot the dash again. Thanks for your comments and as you noticed I already tried to redo this scene.
Rashad thanks for you comment as you make me think I am making some improvements.
