    C&C per req:

    I very much like the idea here, but I believe the execution could be improved just a little bit.

    I would like to see the composition opened up just a little to show the complete foreground bottle. As well, I think a bit more foreground illumination (either reflector or off-camera flash) would have helped greatly ('though a levels/curves tweak might help as well). The main issue however, is the large blow area top/back/left. This draws the eye away from the actual subject. This might well be worth reshooting at a different time of day, with a little extra lighting equipment if you can.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

    Yes, I definitely prefer image #2; having the first bottle completely in the shot and the second aligned with the rest, rather than slightly over-hanging improves the composition greatly.

    cool, thanks for the input. Goes to show you taking multiple shots is good. I wasn't going to use photo 2. somehow I looked over it, but photo 2 is much more in focus.
