***Greeting from Critique Club***

I find your image stunning with sharp details and beautiful color. However, there are a few factors that may have kept it from scoring higher than it did.

First, as mentioned in a comment below, the finger on the handle of the pourer breaks the compositon. Perhaps cropping it out, or bringing it back into the photo would help.I'm thinking that more of the finger should have been included.

About the rose: the rose may have taken away from the shot. It almost seems like an afterthought and crowds the bottom of the shot. Simplicity is often your friend.

Ovarall, you produced a great image with good lighting and focus. You should be proud of it. Keep up the good work.

this one confuses me - maybe it is just me but it seems to be too crowded and I would have preferred this without the rose - sorry

Very good - would've been one of my favourites if it wasn't for the finger on the handle of the milk thingie.

Nice composition here............

Would have been lot more dramatic if the finger on top was replaced with a thin invisible wire - would have made it look quite magical.

The flower is distracting a bit, otherwise this china is my favorite subject to shoot!

I like this except for the tilt. I'd like to see it level. The red is a nice complementary aspect, but I almost think it detracts. I like the black background to showcase the white of the china.
