I really don't know what a symbolic still life is. This might be DNMC but I am hoping the voters don't know what a symbolic still life is either. :)

I had this shot a few days ago and had the "falling" heart tied on with fishing line that you could see and I cloned it out not realizing this was basic editing. So I had to reshoot it with the heart tied on with black thread. But the flash made it visible. Obviously I couldn't clone it out so I did some noise reduction, curves, contrast and other legal editing. I don't like the high contrast & dark image but it was the only way I could get rid of the thread.

I really like that bottle, it looks cool. the plant itself looks a tad dark, but overall, I like your image quite a bit.
