Last minute entry...
This was a larger display of both full and empty milk bottles. While I was editing I decided I like just this small part better than all of the bottles together. I'm bothered by the reflections in the empty bottle and also the fact that half of the back right bottle disappeared when I increased the contrast. Oh well, there's only so much I can do in basic editing.

editing: increase contrast, desaturate, crop, resize, border, USM, neat image

Looks like you could have made some interesting "cow spots". I like the lighting and the image is sharp however the balance is off a bit. The image feels too top heavy, IMO.

Great composition.

I slightly different perspective would have made the upright bottles stand up straighter, maybe shot from slightly lower.

hey that's at least $2.50 in bottle returns you have there :)
Really like the black and white contrast and extra points because Oberweis is my favorite places to get icecream :)

Good black and white shot. I like the milk bottle on its side. Nicely done.

Thank you for using a black background for the milk. Everyone else seems to want to hide the milk in a white background. It does seem a little too "staged," though; spilled milk is an accident and doesn't ever look as neat as this photo.

Nice composition and lighting. The milk is nice and white. I wish you had not of cut off the tops of the bottles in the background.

Cute title. I like the three bottles. I think I'd have liked to see the two standing ones in their entirety instead of cropped.
