Despite the fresh flowers and the brightness, there's a slight air of melancholy about this, I think.

The jug is facing out of the frame, away from the light... Towards the past, perhaps? And the composition is unbalanced, most of the weight on the left, again heading back.

And all of that is fine, if that's your intention: but it would be interesting to see a version heading the other way, forwards, optimistic, lip to the right, handle to the left. Maybe create a triangle with the three elements, and a bit more separation between them? Musing: it all depends on the look you want to achieve.

I see the same hint of sadness as John here. It's a little bit like a swan gliding serenely into the past.

I wonder if you intended to create that mood? It's down to the direction of light as much as anything.

This is a really pretty vase Marion but my first thought was ' it needs to be flipped' with the light coming n from the left of the frame.
As is it is very left side heavy.
There are lots of darker blotches on the bg, whether from your sensor being dirty or on the bg is difficult to tell.

I did a mod...
Added a light texture to cover the dark blotches, that is just personal taste.
Increased the canvas size to the right and cropped.
Cloned away some of the leaves right on the LHS of the frame.
The Butterfly was added simply to put a little interest in the top right, again, personal preference.

I really think you need to consider your composition here Mario, I see the shell as superfluous to the frame too but the rest of the subject matter is really nice.

I like the violet colours.

I would level it, increase colour temp a little, and reframe it as done in the mod
