    k so this is a darker version of the coke bottle, is it better or does it need to go darker?

    I feel like the white is bleeding onto the bottle too much, to me it looks like the background is pulling it back into it because of that. Not sure what to suggest because I don't have much experience shooting pictures like this, though.

    A quick layer mask removing and editing the coke bottle alone would be ideal. You've managed to nail the white though :lol:

    Of course being so small, It had some compression issues, but you get the idea.

    i like it, although i tried doing that in PS and it just kept darkening the background, did you do a layer mask or something

    Yes, I used TOPAZ Remask 2 to remove the bottle from the background and darkened it.
    I also cleaned up the red and green.
