The rhythm section(grin)the middle necks and curve of those bottles is very much in focus. Most didn't take the time to look at that part, they concentrated on the labels (which I almost cropped out).

Look at the glass and the reflection in those two bottles if you care. I still like this shot!

Here are the others w/labels cropped out.

I really like this shot. I do prefer the cropped version so that the focus remains on the necks of the bottles. The only negative I see in the photo is the reflection of the lights in th necks, it seems a bit harsh to me.

Love the tones and your perspective really works here but it's very out of focus. You can eliminate this by using a tripod and or setting the camera on a steady surface while shooting. If you were going for a soft look in this photo I don't really see how it works here. Finally a little shift to straighten out the bottles so they are level would help this out a lot.

Really like the idea but I wish this were in focus with more detail.

Nice attempt, but it seems like you carelessly shook the camera while shooting. Painfully obvious on Shiraz...

Too out of focus.

Seems out of focus (the letters on the bottles). Nice idea however.

I like this view but much more the sound of the cork coming out of the bottle :) The softness and OOF work good

You have an eye for the patterns created by the bottles, and the lights and darks add another layer of patterns as well. Unfortunately nothing can save this shot from the poor focus which it suffers from. Hopefully another challenge comes along which lets you explore this again, because I think if this were not suffering from so much blur it would really have a good impact, simple as it is.

Tricky low light. Nice attempt though. Like how you've composed.

looks like you shook the camera during a long exposure. had also been better to have the bottles parallel to the frame IMO
