I rearranged and retake the photo following your suggestions: change the angle and the amount of visible table (amitabhkumar); increasd micro-contrast for more definition (Patty Capps); vignetted just around the composition to add more interest (pitou250); use of a softbox helped to eliminate shadows (CG33); increased brightness (gerry328); removed some spots and marks to reduce distractions (RuthC). Hope vgabor will forgive me to have changed almost everything... and yes, leaves are artificial!
