    what kind of material is the bottle? is it transparent? what is it filled with?
    for the upper right corner i saw a clock in my mind.
    if the vase is slightly reflective, add the reflection of the bottle, if not, how about some color bleeding?
    are these things lying on the floor or on a table? how can you indicate that it's a table or a floor? what are you trying to express with this drawing?
    maybe add some patterns to the wall?

    i'm not sure about the highlight on the rose. in my opinion it should be more diffuse as it has a different texture compared to glass/porcelain.

    all in all it really depends on what style you're going for so some of my suggestions might be be useless.

    keep up the work, looking good so far!

    Try giving the table a straight edge, it gets crooked behind the vase. Shadows and highlights aren't realistic either.

    i think a clock would be an interesting touch - thinking of how time plays into loneliness.....

    If you draw a clock, draw it with a cracked glass face.

    I think you could have moved the bottle/vase right and slightly forward and it would have been balanced just how it is.

    are you attempting a morandi fee? If so, the moon juxtaposed in the top left throws off the composition a bit. If you are going for a realistic feel rework the color in the rose. Nice start btw.
