    So last weekend, I went and splurged a little on a bottle of JW. Took a pic of it and did some editing. What do you guys think? Anything is appreciated.

    That may work for you, but it won't work for the advertising company's AD (Art Director) that would likely be paying for the shot.

    Plus the bottle/label its self is under exposed.

    Good product photography is not very easy to do. Pro product photographers often wind up with some pretty elaborate and complex set ups to get the photo they need.

    You will probably find that strip boxes on either side will give you a better rendition of tall bottles.

    Is the problem the fact that the Bottle is full?

    I do have to agree with Keith here. I know the blur was intentional in the second photo but I would definitely prefer the writing to be in focus.

    Keep shooting and thanks for sharing

    Unless you're getting out next week or something, I say why wait? They'll keep making it!

    And keep this in mind, when I got out of the AF it took TWO YEARS to actually get officialy discharged! I was out for all intents and purposes but my official paperwork shows two extra years. You may be waiting a while!
