Need advice on lighting and element 3D

Hello everyone.
I have a hard time to learn (or understand) how to correctly light a scene with E3D objects and achieve impressive, realistic results.
I attached a screenshot from my latest shot. The only lights I added here are an ambient light and two parallel lights. No AO, no E3D lights and no environment yet.
Please, I ask for any advice that would help me to improve this scene.

Lighting is an art form, you're gonna have to practice and do a lot of tutorials. There are plenty of them, just search online.

the enviroment usually makes the scene in element 3d. so be sure to also use only a little ambient lighting..20% max..MAX. Element does have some pretty good pre definied lighting setups under render settings envirment additional lighting.
