Beautiful Sterling tea service. The DOF seems a bit shallow but other than that, the photo is great.

I found the reflections just slightly distracting but like Cali thought the photo quite good otherwise.

Nice idea, as calr sez, DOF.
The reflection of the door is Quite good though, IMO but it should be muted a bit (dodge in pp??).
Also the Light reflection below.
I like how you cut off the upper curve to the spout, leaves a lot to the imagination.
I rarely comment on photos but like what you are after.

Try again but get as close as possible, Try F 22 and see if the subject is in focus.
If not back up and frame again.
At one point the open door should be more blurry and your subject should be in focus.

Try to avoid the blowout in the lower area.
I only say this because you are onto something cool.
I do this with my photos and beat myself up.
Sometimes I do (bracketed) hdr with minimal (sometimes extreme) processing.

Just trying to help with something that could be great.

Thanks for the feedback... always appreciated. I won't have the chance to re-photograph the scene because it has been moved, and the light will never be the same. When I took it I was just having fun, and not really paying attention to detail. Next time I will!
