Hey Bro, Its your Chess player here.
I like what you are creating here. Personally I think that the background shouldnt be blured it looks more dimensional to me unblurred. You know what would look really good is if you use the lines that are surrounding the ship as to also be reflected in the ships reflection. For the look of adding speed I think that a few barely noticeable particles that are motion blurred in the same direction as the ship is moving will give it a subliminal feeling of movement. All in all I am really liking this piece of work!
