As always, I appreciate the compliment, man. I thought of including additional parts of the orange, but voted against it. Part of the reason is that I'm a fan of artwork that makes me think and figure obscure details out. I always liked looking at pictures that looked cool enough to catch my eye, but also having "ahhh" moments when hidden things were either figured out or pointed out to me. I thought it just made it even cooler.
I also tried saturating the orange a bit more, but preferred the "dirtier" look.
I wasn't a fan of the topic to begin with, so I wasn't willing to put a boat load of effort into it.

- The clockwork part is obvious, but the orange less so. Adding an orange slice or other half or something may add to the readability and composition
- I wish the orange was more orange.
Really neat though.
