I need help

Here's my first "serious" attempt at product photography. I got these shots more as a result of experimenting, rather than really knowing what I was doing (which probably shows). The headphones are waterproof, so I went with that as a theme for 2 of the images.

Any feedback and ideas for improvement would be much appreciated.
Cheers

Hi Lukas. Extremely good achievements for Freezing the water at first "serious" attempt. Among all good 3, image 3 was catching attention for its composition.

Thank you Vijay! Anything that sticks out as a negative?

Just another perception. Leaves edges are diverting attention in image 1. the highlights on earphone too are a little loude to my opinion. relation of leaves with the product is not clear in this story.

Nice pictures ! The second is a bit confusing maybe. We don't see the product very well.
Apart from that, it would maybe worth trying to eliminate the color cast on the product. There is a kind of blue/cyan/magenta hue which, I suppose, doesn't exist in reality. I guess the product is black.

Hi Stefan, thanks for the feedback! I agree, the second shot is definitely a bit confusing. You're right about the product being black. I think I left some of the color cast in to try to match the product with the environment a bit more. But thinking about it now, everyone can probably tell that it's a composite anyway, so I might as well get rid of the color cast :D Thanks again for helping me out, I can tell from your portfolio that you know what you're taking about :)

The composite work is well made, that's a good work. About the colors, once you made the object black, you can maybe add a light color cast from the environment, as you thought. Green for the 1st, for example. And only where light is supposed to be reflected. It worth a try. Thanks for the compliments, by the way. I'm just an average product photographer, and I learn every day ;-)
