Banner 2 is cool, but there's no real "focus" -- not sure if that's the right way to put it, but it feels a little disorienting to me.
Yup, I thought exactly the same. I had planned just to have the bomber and the AA in there but there was no real focal point so I shoved the dogfight in there to try and give it a bit more action. It didn't turn out quite like I hoped, I think mainly because I couldn't get the right angles on the SAM and the Bomber but after rendering them I was just too lazy to do it all again
Thanks though guys, I'll try and do a few more and some Welcome banners too for the homepage.
while all the BAR screenshots i have seen so far (mostly from Behe) made me think i was looking at same old BA with an other look. these banners.. especially the dogfight, feel like.. a new thing (which is very good, in my eyes). the orange thing looks a bit strange indeed.. looks like 2D pixel art next too a 3D commander.

ACTUALLY IGNORE THE LAST PART OF MY LAST POST.
I took another look at the image, and the real thing that bothers me isn't that the colors pop, but that the units look out of place W.R.T. the background. It might just be a personal thing, but they kind of look pasted-on.
I rather like when banners focus on 1 unit. Seems too busy with more than 1 thing.
Hmm Okies, that's interesting. I kept thinking they were looking too empty without more units but yeah, I'll try some with just one unit. Might try and focus on perhaps putting more into the background instead.
