First attempt at a still life. How about a critique?
Let me know what you think.

OK, this is coming from a regular Joe, so take it for what it's worth, which ain't much, just figure you'd like a response...
Nice subject. But the shot's missing a lot. The lighting is ordinary, doesn't set a mood, make a statement or add to the content of the shot. The framing isn't dynamic... the subject is front and center. The table is so brightly lit that any mystery is removed.
None of the above is necessarily true! Just that you need to find a style that really expresses something about your subject. You have a factual documentation of the flowers etc... now you need to give us your subjective interpretation of them. Making it subjective rather than objective is what makes it unique and interesting, hopefully.
Getting kinda deep, need some wading boots, sorry.
