Well... My lowest score ever. BUT!!! The comments were great and very helpful. It was my first product shot but I need this for a local competition. The suggestions are VERY helpful and I want to thank everyone who made them.
The big mistake here is to try and process a picture and get it up in less the 25 minutes. This was shot at 11:35 and put up the first time at 11:54 but was to large and I had to shrink it and go back up with four minutes to spare.
Re-shoot before 4-10...

I like how you incorporated the maple leaves on the table and in the shape of the cakes.

Very nice set-up, colors, and processing. It all gives a great mood to the image. The only little changes I would make are to straighten the horizon line and to move the candle so it doesn't look like the napkin is about to catch fire : )

Wonderful idea but the color seems a bit off and the back ground is slanted.

Like the cast from the candle. Compliments the bottle/contents.

Ohh, so close to being a outstanding shot. The white balance is off and that seam in the wall paper kills the image.

All seems rather red; I'd prefer to see the real colours and a touch more contrast I think.

very well arranged, good lighting. White balance could be a tad less warm.

Great set up, but i feel it could use a shallower depth of field.
