Looks like a lovely way to spend a rainy day. Too bad the flowers are cut off at the top.

Maybe Im wrong, but my idea of a still life is an isolated object or objects making a pleasing composition. The picture is complete in and of itself. The main focus are the subjects of the picture. In your case there isnt really a focus. There are a few objects on a table which is in a room with some stuff showing. What is the focus? And Vsch is right about the flowers. Not only are the tops cropped off, but the vase interferes with the lines of the glass of beer.

Too many of those could lead to camera shake issues if you don't have an image stablization lens or camera. :-)

If you pulled that chair out a little bit, the red in the seat would have perfectly squared off the corner of the table cloth!

I agree with Bynx. The shot is too busy. You need to apply the KISS ("Keep it simple, -----!"). Actually, the KISS principle applies to any photo.
