Worked on this today with the suggestions received on my initial post. I redid the background, not the exact color as the photo, but like the outcome. Also worked on the ellipse on the right side of the bowl (still seems off to me) and added more contrast and highlights to the pears. Still need to sign it but willing to make any more changes first. Thank you everyone. I am so much happier with this now.
