- Love the raytracing
- The cool wood-grained laptop is excellent
- The lighting of the laptop screen and the sword is quite clever

- The really bright lamp spots on the table - very glary!

- Try pointing the bright lights in the foreground off the table a bit
(like the one highlighting the tip of the sword).
- Find a way to highlight the far edge of the sword hilt - when it is
shrunk down to 320 x 240 or 160 x 120, it gets lost in the background a
- Maybe make the backdrop one of those stereotypical medieval libraries
with the really tall bookshelves and the big hardcover books?  I love
those places!  :-)

Overall, i think this would be fine as a splash screen, but a logo is
something that people need to be able to put in their web page as a link
or something like that, so it needs to scale down one of those 300 x 60
web page banner ads easily.
