great detail--you can even clearly see the grommets! would prefer it rotated for the slight tilt. might have been a bit stronger if you had backed around to the right and allowed for 10-20% more dead space in the upper right corner.

Nice lighting. Good eye, the angle is great, lots of lines to draw the eye. The idea of a courthouse (authority) is projected very well here.
