Not being a wine drinker, the first shot didn't excite me too much. In the second shot, I don't think the shallow depth of field works. I would try to get at least half of the glasses in focus.

It definitely should, wave.

Cal, I will try to take some pictures with a deeper DoF and see how it goes.

I like the dof you used with the wine glasses. Also the blue reflection adds a nice touch.

Thanks for commenting, Walter and Vanessa.

I did try using a deeper DoF as Cal suggested but I did not like the results. I think it would look better if I had a long row of glasses. However, my wine rack can only accommodate 4 glasses in each row, so not vary many and having them all in focus does not do much. I will post a picture that shows what I'm describing.

My vote is for the second image. I like the lone glass in focus. Nicely done.
