It just looks too nice for garbage. The lighting is wonderful. I need to make my own lightbox someday too. But it all looks too staged and antiseptic. I think that's your biggest problem. The composition isn't bad, but is too symmetrical and centered. We have 4 elements all mirroring each other. That adds to the unrealistic nature. I think we wanted our garbage to look like garbage...(see ribbon winners).

Reasonable composition and color contrast, slogan might be better some degrees clockwise?

like the contrast amongst black, white and red. would like to see just a bit more black at the top and bottom for greater image balance. it also appears that the black in the lower right corner is deteriorating just a bit, which is distracting.
i like this image very much, it's one of my favorites so far for this challenge.
