I'll add some critique from my part.

Call me obtuse and old fashioned, but I really don't like that the 
graphics are made with Bryce or 3D Studio. I think those graphics should 
  show the power of Fedora and have to be made 100% with Fedora (I 
expect big opposition to this from the Photoshop camp)

I really don't get this, what is meant to represent? The car of my/your

I like those.

Another one hard to get. You would not want to know what I thought it is 
at the first look :D

The progress bar, glassy or not, is drawn by GTK, so best is to have it 
use the same GTK theme as the desktop.

I like the second one but absolutely hate the first (the space ship), it 
looks very amateurish.

Is there a source for such high quality 3D images with a license 
suitable for our usage? If not, I think is unrealistic to expect our 
project to produce such graphics in due time for the next release.
It would be easier to use photos (maybe with digital enhancements) to 
reach the same feeling.
