Love that old camera and the old style photographs. This is a great still life and the image grain complements the arrangement. However, I do have some critiques as that I think there are a few things that could improve the visual impact. First off, there is just too much negative space around the main subjects that they 'swim' within the composition. Bring your audience closer to the main subjects so that we can see all the lovely details - especially in that old style camera. Second is that both the foreground (ground) and background just has way too much texture that it draws the eyes attention away from your main focus. A smooth, dark wood table would have been one possible choice to set the still life composition on. An old style secretary desk might have also been a good setting for these arrangement. Point is that the backdrop and foreground could be anything that did not have too much texture and would compliment the objects either by time era or period.
