Hi Melissa,

Excellent shot! A pity that it wasn't rated better. I would had expected this to be in the region of 6+.
The lighting, exposure, composition and framing is excellent!

I can't improve it much, except for the focus on the brand - Sandeman. It could had been sharper.
Love the overall mood and feel to the shot.

I would score it 9 out of 10.

Btw.. Welcome to DPC. Keep up the good work. :)

This is my second place choice, very atmospheric shot which really suits the product, love the dusty feel to it and the nice soft directional light. I think i just talked myself into bumping this to a 10 - great stuff

I like your choice of lighting here - almost echos that of the figure on the label. On my laptop I can see a bit of noise in the background along the light trail, but my laptop is very much on the lighter end of the scale.

Nice image and tones, maybe if the bottle were directly in the light or back a little more, it would have helped a great deal, 6.
