    It could stand to be a little sharper and w/ more light on the neck. I also don't think it's exactly vertical. Other than that, nice job.

    yea, i was kind of having trouble getting the lighting on the neck brighter, i had kind of a wierd setup because i didnt want any direct light on the front of the bottle. and it might not look sharp due to the compression and resizing, but i think i could have upped my aperture by a couple stops as well, i just didnt want the edge of the acrylic to show up too sharp.

    I think the lack of light on the neck actually works; instead of lingering around the top of the shot, as I tend to with bottles, my eyes are drawn straight to the branding — and that's what it's all about, isn't it?

    I'd have to see it lit differently to be absolutely sure, but I'm not striking this down as a major fault at all.

    I'd have liked to see a crisper, sharper horizon, though, and it does seem to be tilted ever so slightly backwards, as Alpha said.

    But overall, I like it. It gives such a lovely glow and comes across as quite effective to me.
