    Wow, great effort on this one! The only thing that bothers me is that the pair looks a little flat, I think because it has a white edge running along his whole perimeter. I'm not sure but I think it should be darker at it's bottom.

    The light edge around the bottom of the pear is definitely flattening it out, like SAGIR mentioned. Also there is some of that near the top where it's overlapping the basket which is also making it feel flat. Darkening/softening those areas a bit could really help.

    Also the top & cap of the bottle seem to be at a different perspective than the rest of the scene. It feels like too dramatic of a jump from the ellipses of the basket to the top of the bottle.

    Other than that, it's quite a nice study.

    I agree. Bump up the core shadow in the pear. Also, try to keep consistent darks throughout the piece. It feels kind of strange that it is really dark under the vase and pear but not really elsewhere.
