Default USS Kelvin?

Is it just me or does the Kelvin ship look a little tooooooo CGI? It looks more like a Cartoon to me.

It's hard to tell from this one screen shot. Get her on the big screen and in action and I'm sure it will look great.

Actually, it's the best Trek CGI I've seen yet!
But that's my opinion.
We must wait for the trailer, movie, or something to get a better scale!
But as for the "CGI so real you'll think it's a model", not yet, but just from 2 screenshots, there's more to see!

I've seen similar fan-made concepts. The ship actually looks fine to me from what i can see of it. It's the registry number that bugs me. 0514? Why not just 514? The zero is there why? If you said "Hey! That zero serves no useful purpose!", then I congratulate you, because you'd be correct. That's the only fly I see in the buttermilk as far as this elder starfleet vessel is concerned.

One point on the CGI: this looks very much to be a still frame from a sfx shot, which is going to look quite different 'out of motion' as a still shot than it will at 24fps.

Yes, I think the final shot will be more realistic, but I did think from the still it looked not the best CGI I had ever seen. I think the actual film will be much more realistic.
