I like very much your photo: a beautiful famous arm and accessories. An original subject.
Well done: the colours rendering of the steel and the leather is excellent and sure the background has been harmoniously chosen.
Maybe could you have added some more stuff (powder horn, primers distributor...)?
Very nice.

Had I any other accessories I would have added them. Even as reproductions the capping tool, and 5 spouted charging flask are getting hard to find. I am trying to gather the correct accessories, bu it will take time.

Technically perfect image. Is this a weapon from 1836? If so, it's very well preserved, no visible rust. Is it still functional?

This is a reproduction, but a very good one. An original in this condition would be worth close to a quarter of a million dollars, I unfortunately don't have that kind of money. Thank you for your comments on the photo.
