Finished Bowl

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of my first segmented bowl in a partially completed state. After much more sanding a a couple applications of oil. Here is the completed bowl. It is walnut and butternut. All comments and criticism welcome. I'm new at segmented turning and new to turning bowls so please be brutally honest if necessary.

If you dont mind me being brutaly honest I would like to say that that is one that I would be proud to have the skill to make. I love the way the segments have been paired up. It looks a very balanced piece to my eye.

A lot of thought and skill has obviously gone into the construction
