The first image is really good, but the second image (larger view) seems off...

The view outside the window gives me the impression that its sunset and everything is a little darker than normal high noon sunlight, but the lighting inside the building doesn't quite match IMHO. Some of the shadows are off on the wall below the window I can't even see them they blend right into the wall....

Try reducing the photon intensity a little maybe? Or reposition or maybe even delete some lights where you don't need them.

Is there a light source inside the building we don't see?

I agree; the first image is awesome. Looks like a picture to me. Fantastic!

edit:
I just noticed that 2 of the bullet near the clip look like they are floating. They probably just need some shadowing...

Thanx for all, I must agree that the second one looks a bit odd, It has 2 light sources, I tested begginning with one outside point light, then it wos like this.

the first render, the contact shadows under the clip and brass are not sharp enough.. Great renders though.

Fantastic shaders - I love the paint and cracks on the table. Are those maps or procedural?

A suggestion though, if it's getting towards sunset, the light would be coming from a lower angle, and would be getting reddish.
