    I'm kinda new at this but the second one is the best IMHO.

    First: Level your camera - all shots are off horizon. That should be easy to fix.

    Second: use a large shallow pan so you won't get that distracting edge in the background!!! If necessary put camera at a little higher angle (but try to avoid that).

    Third: use gels of whatever color on your flash it increases the mood dramatically.

    Sharpness looks good. Keep going.

    the colors stand out, the blue with just a hint of silver looks very nice.

    The background takes away from your image... change your apeture and/or PoV.

    Gels are colored strips that you can place in front of your light source.

    I like the last 2. The first one was abit distracting from the background. I think you did really good with these. I personally am partial to the blue one.
