a little too dark but otherwise very good

I still remember this scent from my Grandfather. I like your subject, but it would be better if the slight line of glare could have been eliminated. I wonder if it would have helped to bounce the light? I like the shadow the bottle casts.

This brings back memories of my grandfather too, and every male school teacher I ever had back in the 70's.....they all received several bottles of this stuff as student teacher gifts!!

The wood works well here this is very good but I would like to see the Background a bit brighter to get the full effect of what starts out to be a great shadow. The focus at the top of the subject appears a bit soft. Nice effort.

I think I would have liked a little more light on the bottle, or maybe a greater exposure would have brought this shot out. As it is, I think its a bit too dark and the white of the bottle appears too yellow to be very appealing. I like the simple composition though.

Aww my dad wore this too, brings back wonderful memories, this is a good shot,some may say the lighting is too dark, but I see that you are portraying a memory here so dim lighting IMHO is definitely called for.

Lighting, setting. Surely more is needed than just putting down and object and hitting the expose butting on the camera?
