VERY last minute submission. Thank you so much to Razz who helped me make this shot. I have like no photo gear so i had to use a towel in the background and a fluorescent light stolen from the kitchen. not how i wanted it to turn out. but the best i could do.

b]Greetings from the Critique Club! [/b]

I think this image has a lot of potential. The composition, lighting and everything about the shot glasses, liquid being poured and the bottle is great. The only things that kept you from having a higher score was the background and the drastic change from the brightness around the shot glasses to the darkness of the reflections. It's too bad that you only had a towel to use as background, personally I wasn't a fan of the textures near the top. I still gave your picture a 6 though. I, and others, would vote higher with a little less harsh lighting and more gradual change in the reflection. Bottoms up!

I don't like the reflections in this shot, they seem forced.

Nice photograph and love the idea behind it. The picture don't seem level to me tho and the background is kind of distracting to me.

Umm i wish the shadows were as sharp as well... is it a composite image?

Ooooooh. Bitter/sweet memories over this stuff. I light the layout and the lighting, but the jump from "reflective black" to "flat white" is .....hmmmm .... very noticable.

is your product the glass or the beverage in the bottle (or rather bottle as a brand). I am a taker if your product is actually the glass. For the rest, I would definitely say you should have showed us the bottle in full. Please note that buyers can actually claim that the product received is not as per the details shown. LOL.

Good shot anyways.

Not so sure I like the reflection and the area near the glasses is a bit too bright. But overall a good photo.

The reflection is very distracting...

I like the top part of this and think it very effective. The reflection doesn't quite "fit" for me and in fact detracts given that the line between the top and botom isn't perfectly straight. Very good light, and nice catch of the pouring motion with even levels between the two glasses. Also good crop of the bottle in the upper right. (Commenting only.)
