I think the colors are good, but the edges could be crisper to make the specular look more like light.  Wet/transparent/metallic things usually have hard edges between colors, and as you add blur it transitions to a softer material, like fabric or paper.  It can be difficult to accept hard edges, though, when you're painting, haha.  Sometimes I'll add in specular and I'm like, "that just looks like a blob of white sitting there."  But then if you put it aside and come back later, it'll look great.

Hey Kajenx.  Thank you for your suggestions.  That is great feedback.  I'll certainly try that out in my next study (or painting) :D

Thank you. I feel more work in contrast is needed but am happy so far

Where would you add more contrast? I am asking this because I want to learn more, I noticed that I don't work with too much contrast usually even though I would like to.

I would add more blacks under the pine cone thingy's pines.  Also under the strawberry and acorn where they meet the ground.. Looking at it more, some more lighting and reflection around the rim of the objects could help them sit better :)
