I would have put the tumbler sharp in front and the label slightly off-focus behind. After all it is the drink that is supposed to be silky smooth.

I'm fighting the square crop on this. I really want to see the top of the bottle. Missing the bottom isn't bothering me as much. I think the background glass should be a touch more in focus. You're almost completely losing it in the backdrop. I understand that you want it out of focus, but I think you went a little too far with it.

I think the background glass draws attention to the backdrop actually, and I'm not sold on your backdrop. Bringing that glass more in focus would help define it from your cloth.

I like how you placed the glass in the bokah'd background.

Smooth, but not as smooth as Wild Turkey.

Just a text doesn't make it smooth. I like to taste it.

This is kind of dull. I'm not a big fan of the lighting.

Wonderful image of the glass in the background...it really adds to your photo. Looks like an advertisement. Nice!

You stole my idea! ...well, I was thinking Scotch...and never got around to shooting it... Good on you for doing it! :-)

this is a nice image, although I think the concentration should have been on the glass with the whiskey, which might be a bit more subtle and lend itself more to the implication of being 'smooth as silk' instead of spelling it out literally.
