The one that was done in LR does look better, but the very 1st one looks like white paper in the background in two places, slightly out of focus in both. All the rest look like some king of light source, our of focus (because of the aperture leaf shape and very out of focus.
I would shield the backgrouns from the light sources bu using a large sheet of black art paper to prevent the light source from throwing light in the background./
Yes, there were light reaching the background and next time I will make a better "shield"to prevent the flash throwing light in. Now, the focus was set on the pendant since the background was intended to be completely dark. Maybe, I should have used a smaller aperture to improve the DOF since smoke was moving forward and backward.
Thank you for your words!
