    If you fix the white balance and exposure, they'll look better.
    Also, I'd make the DOF (Depth of Field) narrower (larger F-stop) or deeper so that the jug in the back is either blurrier or sharper (higher F-stop).

    The goal here for the white balance was to make the paper under the cookies white.

    Also want to try to focus on the cookies... drop depth of field, set the cookies fully in frame at a key focus point ( look up rule of thirds ), etc.

    Also re-take them with proper exposure unless you have RAW images as the image data simply won't be there if it was an underexposed JPEG.

    Yeah i'd try mounting on a tripod if light is scarce, and try a longer exposure and use some artificial lighting. if you don't have an off camera flash set up, try long exposure + a cell phone light (just wave it around evenly like you're painting) ;) Also like the others said, use a large aperture (small f-stop #)

    Or better yet, bounce flash on the ceiling.

    Thanks a lot for all the C&C. As for the underexpose and white balance I did that intentionally to get a warmer pics, but apparently it didn't work right. Again, thanks.

    When in doubt, focus on the cookies!
