Greetings from the Critique Club!

I really like this image. It has an inviting, warm, peaceful feeling. Your comment implies you wanted to portray coziness and you were successful. You've chosen quite a few compatible yet contrasting elements and arranged them very nicely, with multiple levels to add interest and realism. Good lighting, focus, and processing. The mildly low key tonality works very well.

Although a great photo, since you requested a critique I feel obligated to point out the few flaws. It seems tilted slightly clockwise (or perhaps the painting is just not straight; it has a lot of horizontal and vertical lines that aren't quite). There is some glare from the light on the right side of the painting. The linen has some distracting folds (a bit too realistic!).

A fine setup with wonderful elements. I find the lighting a bit lifeless. Also composition might have been stronger by getting closer, showing less of the tablecloth and more of the silver.

The painting makes a great background. I like the distinct groups of objects.

This could have been a good shot but in my opinion it is spoiled by a poor camera angle and distracting picture in the background. Lighting could have added something also.

Beautiful image. For me it invokes the old masters in oil. The contrast and balance is flawless for my taste. Great work!

Good idea. Good composition. The image looks a little tilted but other than that this is a nice shot. I like the soft light.
