looks good. The lighting in the photoshopped version seems a bit off.

My first work wasnt that good great so far

Crits: maybe the floor is too reflective and u should change the lightning... if u trained some, maybe u are able to enlighten the scene just with the candles, to create a very romantic mood

atm it looks like some burglers are disturbing the diner with their flashlights

For your first piece of work thats amazing. I think how you modeled the place was excellent. I really like the version just rendered because the lighting is to intense or something but I like how you lit the candles!

Good Job on your first attempt. As stated before the lighting is pretty poor. It looks like you have a single spotlight illuminating the entire scene?

Try using ambient lights on each candle set the colour to a light orange and turn on raytrace shadows foreach one to see if you get the right effect from the shadowing. Also keep the spot, but widen the cone area and and turn down its intensity and do not use shadows.

For me the biggest problem is light not falling on the table, the first place light would hit would be the table.

True, point lights would be the best to simulate the rooms light bulbs, although they take longer to render, but thats the trade off.
