We found the overall composition of this file's lighting could be improved. Some of the technical aspects that can all limit the usefulness of a file are:
-Direct on-camera flash and/or flash fall-off (bright subject, dark background)
-Harsh lighting with blown-out highlights that lack details and/or distracting shadows
- Distracting lens flares
-Incorrect white balance

I would get this a little brighter but watch out for the the first two coins and highlight on the pen they seem to be ok, after that adjust vibrance a little to make the red pop a little more watching out for those two coins again. You can actually mask those two coins and the pen highlight following your adjustements.
