Very nice model. The amount of detail and weathering came out very well.

The only criticism I have would be the dust effect on the feet.
I think it looks to uniform. In a very dry and dusty environment, which I assume you were trying to mimic, the dust would be all over the model instead of very localized.

I would either add more dust for the "dry desert effect" or show some more metal/base color on the feet for a slightly less dry micro particle dust effect.

To me at the moment the feet look out of place and slightly unfinished.

Overall a very nice model though.

This is based on you stating 'pro level':
To be honest, it's not up to your usual standard. Could be the white background, but the photo feels 'washed out'. THe airbrush dust filter around the feet I guess came out too heavy? You may want to try an oil wash over that to bring back some contrast on the base and build up some gradient on the armour itself.

The metals have quite a rough stippled look to them.
The weathering doesn't feel quite right - I can see the effort gone into the chipping, I think perhaps the placement is off.

I'd expect it to pull low-to-mid 7 on CMON with those photos. A different backdrop and working on the contrast on the piece would probably help.

Thank You all for replies
This mini started out as a battle-damage excersise, so some things are a bit low-grade
The base was repainted from previous, darker tone, I thought it will be more desert, ash wastes etc.
But still the main feature on this project was battle-damage and weathering
