I'm a beginner, but decided to take a stab at this contest  it's not that good, but "You miss 100% of shots you don't take", right?

 @ultimaodin: Yeah, that probably will make it look a lot better. I already submitted it in the contest unfortunately, so I'm going to revisit this fairly soon.

@Manupix: Yes I realized that afterward!  I wanted to give it a wooden cabin kind of feel, and wanted everything to be wooden, but then this became an issue 

@Theoden: Thanks  I thought the candle was really big also, but when I asked for advice from somebody, they told me I should keep it like that so it catches the eye . And actually yes, it was the first thing... 
And by the way, I love your icon. It's amazing. I'm jealous. lol

This is a nice scene. If you define more contrast in colors the shapes will be more readable. You should add some shadows to the scene like ultimaodin said and I think you should shrink that candle. It is very big compared to the other objects in the scene. Was the candle the first thing you drew on the scene? That might be the cause of the proportion problem.

What ultima says. Also, readability issue: tones for the furniture front sides (mostly the bed 'foot') being similar to the ground, makes them invisible (couldn't guess what the bed was till I saw the foot). Use a dark tone from the wall instead!

Remove the circle of light you have and instead focus on shadows cast by the candle. So the right side of the bed, under the chest of drawers it rests on, under the cup etc...
