    Light bouncing off the paper is too strong.

    If you're lighting it up with a single umbrella, you might have to place a gobo to the right rear of the can, just outside of frame.

    i've found that i get the best results using constant light source rather than flashes.

    this was from the first time i tried it. i know they aren't "perfect" but it was WAAAY easier to play with a light bulb than the flashes

    The very first shot, the one of the statue. I would think, personally, that the DOF was too shallow. If you are trying to showcase the piece for sale, wouldn't you want to show as much detail as possible?

    my 2 pennies.
