    I think you have a good subject here but suggest a dark cloth, dark background and take it at night so you can control the reflections - and the teapot has to be vertical not tilted. Maybe one main light and a fill. You've made a good start with the arrangement and the sliver should look gorgeous with the right lighting. Kudos for trying!

    Nice vintage silver set. The B&W processing and vignette work well, but the tripod in the reflections is quite a distraction.

    When I look again, I think exposure is fine, but maybe the vignette is a bit strong.

    Very shiny, but still a little dull, maybe a little more exposure. Crop is a bit tight in my opinion otherwise well executed! I like your tripod! :)

    A beautiful old tea service that is perfect for the theme. The vignetting darkens it too much IMO

    A few observations -- the sugar bowl handle is too close to the right side of frame and the teapot spot just touching the window frame are bothersome. The vignetting is a little strong I think.

    I can hear the cups rattling.... can we see the colour in the outtakes?
a white sheet with a hole for the lens would have reduced the reflections
