I like to try and emulate some of the works of other's whse work i like, one such person is Cattyal and her excellent still lifes from things you might not otherwise notice.
I hope his gets close to her latest wood series and that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I had an old peanut sacks for the texture background, a Honl photos honey comb attachment for the flash on a cord at 1/8 power. The wood is about 3 years old, orange juice in a rum bottle, blooming teas, bird or paridise dead flowers, ginger and a giant bulb flower from last year.

This is nicely set up, composed and executed. Maybe try adding textured layers to enhance it further and possibly tone down the highlights.
A great effort though, hope to see more.

Not bad Smile Good collection of subject matter.....

If it were my shot then I'd iron the background and as suggested by Phil, use a texture layer. I tend to light mine quite brightly now, as per your V3 - the texture layer soon takes care of all that brightness Smile

Love the different textures and the shades of golden brown. Great still life composition. Well thought-out.

I agree if you know about layers or can learn it can make quite a difference.
