Airy & Light versus Dramatic & High Contrast

I attempted to capture the airy and light style and the dramatic and high contrast style.  The subject is chocolate cucumber bread.  Yes, I baked with cucumbers, which is why there are cucumbers in the photos.  There's also almonds and dried cherries on the plate (and in the bread) and leaves for decoration (not in the bread!).

Here's the airy and light:

And here's my version of dramatic and high contrast.  I used the exact same food and props and just changed the lighting and background.  In retrospect I should have used a different plate and cup, but it seems that my kitchen collection is all very white and not very dramatic or high contrast.
