It was taken on 5x4 film so you can't really see the detail [of the original in this little JPEG]. maybe?

Dude, I can see you like the critique's so far.

Can I play this game too? That photo lacks. You have control over the lighting, so control it better!

You need more lighting on the peppers. Using a smaller box, or lifting up the peppers towards the top of the tent can compensate for the lack for lighting equipment.

I also think you probably didn't orient your lights correctly. Using portrait orientation on long vertical subjects, I would have placed the primary at 12 o'clock high, and your fill at 8 o'clock 45-60 degrees.

I also would have really tried getting a small (teeny tiny) spot, or flashlight or somethingorother onto the green stems to separate them from the background, and avoid having to burn in during printing.

P.S.
Your peppers themselves look dull and dry. You should have misted with your glycerine and water mix prior to your shot.
