An attractive rendition, particularly with the speckled filtered lighting creeping through from the left.
However there is significant highlight blowing in the flowers and the background which is harsh on the eyes.
Although the image appears relatively sharp there is evidence of oversharpening. A genuinely sharp image would not require as much sharpening for it to look good.
Otherwise a pleasant image.

I like the image.

I think I'd like it even more if the bright area immediately behind the flowers' stems wasn't as bright/white.

Also, perhaps the image tilts down a bit from left to right.

I hope to see more of your photos.

Best wishes.

Not only oversharpened and overexposed, but seems over saturated. Halos on the camera box, and odd colors.

It's a good image, it just needs to be toned down in a few ways.

thx, i will look to post process it a little more. I have a lot to learn.
About the sharpening... i have use`d the kit lens and i don't like them (they are not like the smc 50 1.7 thet i have in terms of contrast and sharpening) but they are the only AF lens thet i have. Without an AF lens i cannot control my speedlight as slave
Probably i have over-sharpen`d the picture.
I have also preprocessed the wall a lot because is full of spots (a neighbor has flood me).
The light from the left is from a flashlight trough a material with some hols in it.

I like the items, the colors and the overall feel. Compositionally, I would have liked to see the objects closer together with less dead space -- preferably in portrait orientation. There isn't much contrast between the chest and the camera case, so I might have chosen to leave the chest out altogether.
