Torstan - That is a lot of excellent advice--this is why I hesitate to call things done. There is always more touching up to do!
I will try to pretty up the backdrop more. I put a light "glow" on the stars as I didn't want to overdo them (I was trying to imagine that stars from Earth orbit, which is, artistically speaking, the exact wrong thing to do...) but I think you're right. Some nebulae might add some more 'splash' to the image.
The flag is actually the New York City flag, but my girlfriend asked the same question... The NY flag has an orange band rather than a red one, and the blue crest in the middle (though I see now the image I used has a redder tone than orange--I'll fix that). Knowing that, would you suggest I remove it? If that is everyone's first question, it might not matter whether it is the right flag or not.
I am not sure what to do about lady liberty--I have her zoomed a little as one of the images on the bottom 'info' part, but maybe that isn't enough. I am not sure what else to do though: Maybe I could make that bigger or try to come up with another way to present it. Hmm.
Thanks again, I'll get back to work!
