Maybe just crop a little from the bottom but I think it's a lovely picture.

Lovely shot !!.....nice set up, with a great complimentary b/g !!!.Smile

Observations/thoughts.......
a).. a clean 'wine-jar' would be more appealing ?
b)..pull the cheese board a little closer to the camera, & bring the candle & jar inwards for
a tighter arrangement.
c)..try a portrait format too.
d)..Try some top/rear lighting too, to add some sparkle....the subjects may need pulling forward
away from the wall.......(hint....I use an old anglepoise lamp to get the height & rear light !)
e)..try putting the candle-holder on something (an old book ?) to create different heights in
the subjects
f)..Let the candle flame 'glow' ?.....it adds to the atmosphere.

Not criticisms.....just a few ideas to try out out on this nice set-up !!.WinkGrin

Can I add - you've got loads of feedback form Niknut - and you'd probably get more from others if you posted in the Critique Gallery, where people loking to give ideas, options and advice go looking for pictures to comment on.

Automatically, this will enable modifications, so that they can show what they are talking about. For instance, I'd suggest tweaking Levels to give a fuller tonal range, and straightening the verticals with Transform/Skew, but i can't show you how I would want it to look in the main gallery without Mods enabled.
