Why do my photos never look right

Couldn't get the final result in the other post.
As you can see, there has been some photoshop work done 😅
Bonus night pic and test with other tree cleaned up.

I just got a new table in and decided to try out some tests.
At this point it's about so many details/things.. not only the display and positioning but also the photo & light angle's, direction of the table,..
I find it very very hard.

Here are all my attempts and the final result. I'm somewhat happy with but there's still room for improvement.

You have some good ones in there. Like anything else it's practice, practice, practice.
 
Others already gave you all the good advice so here is my best secret:
I used to own two photo processing and camera equipment stores and have some good cameras in my possession. Yet every picture I post here is from my phone. That way I have an excuse permanently in my pocket.

I will second the phone. Part of my job is being a photographer for uncle Sam and the equipment I have at my disposal is crazy. That said, some of the best video I have taken of aircraft has been with my phone - they are very capable. Play around with lighting, angles and your f-stop/depth of field to soften your background and you might be pleased with your results if you have a background that matches the subject, or at least compliments it.

Cheers.
