I do agree with you of course. However, I have a gut feeling that
something else is at play here. Possibly involving the slight
reflectivity mentioned by Norbert, or something involving a high
"ambient" value (?). Look also at the left-hand chair: It should be in
shadow (light coming from left rear) but it is strongly illuminated by a
light from under the table... Is that reflection from the table cloth?
It seems too bright to me.
But those are just nitpicking comments. The image is gorgeous nonetheless.
