Greetings from the Critique Club, Daniel!

Very glad that you have joined a local photography club and are working on improving your skills. I can tell you used a tripod here...what a difference a simple piece of equipment makes eh? The composition is fairly straightforward, I like it overall but would have preferred to see one of the roses a little lower than the others, to help create a leading line up from the apples. (Personally I would have used just one red rose, but that's me, and still lifes aren't my strong point). I do agree with the comment re the oof apples and highlights...your photo club can help you learn how to control highlights, but in the meantime most still lifes are front-to-back in focus....f2 is extremely shallow, try going a bit deeper next time, longer exposure and keep the ISO low.

All in all very nice work and a good showing in a Free Study, which are always tough to do well in. Keep up the good work and definitely continue to work with your photo club!

Nice concept, but I would have liked to see the apples in focus here, and the reflections on the vase slightly better controlled.
