Since you’re using Tripod, and they don’t allow direct linking, you have to give people the link to the image and tell them to copy and paste.

Lighting could use some work, and you might want to ditch/fix the halo on that spotlight. Edit: Maybe try radiosity? That might look better than the halo.

I agree the lighting needs some work.

Also something about the texture is strange. At some points its looks nice and shiny and at others its very matte and flat. Maybe do something with the reflections to fix that.
