    What sort of focus were you looking for? If dark was the goal as you say then mission accomplished.
    I quite like the blue patterned bowl fading into darkness but and this is just me, I would try and bring out the detail in the middle of the bowl a little bit more.
    By raising the shadows it shows off the blue patterning well and keeps the dark theme.
    Bit like this.

    I was looking girl more focus on the blue base of it.
    Honestly this is a first for me using a dark room with a light source..as little as it was.
    I like what you did.
    Sometimes I cannot decide what looks better. I had looked at it with the shadows raised alike your edit.
    Appreciate you taking the time..and with more practice I could up my game with such practices.

    I don't mind at all and quite enjoy playing about with photoshop.:)
    I noticed when I raised the shadows that wood grain was visible from the table, I burned this to keep with your darker theme. The grains seemed to be running in a complimentary angle for the shot, I might have been tempted to keep them in another version as an anchor to keep the candle from looking like its floating in the darkness.
