Well it is a nice looking mount from what I can see but the black background is not doing it any favors in my opinion.
Some people just need a high-five.

if I would do anything it would be to cut down o the shine of feet and bills ,glare could be from flash ,but if it's from gloss applied over paint it can distort the true color underneath.Maybe go lighter on color of cans feet with accents on joints of black then a good wash ,mod podge of satin to finisg
