Default Uing a gold reflector as fabric in still life!

I get hooked by the flowers my wife puts in the kitchen we rebuilt together.

I almost always shoot with the flowers backlit by the light from the new windows I added and so there is always a green hedge and blue sky. I simple slipped a gold relfector behind the vase and the fruit bowl.

I then used the gold relfector as a start for the fabric which I cloned and worked to get the feel of fabric. I have done that previously with a model some years back1

Looks good but it is missing a foreground?
