Default Wine

Well actually this is wine (the my gf's grandparents make) in an old whiskey bottle.

At thanksgiving dinner, I thought I would try to make interesting shots with the candle light we were using.



Thoughts?

I'm blinded by that candle shining in my eyes. It would have been better if the lable was turned towards the candle so only the bottle shape with the fine wine is seen. A little crop at the underside and left side might also help.
Rest me to say, I can smell the wine, I want a glass, Proost :-)

Your grandfather's wine has "clarity", Gimli

Nice photo!

I like the mix of clearly defined glass with warm glow
illumination of candle light.

Oh yes, I like the atmosphere you created and that digicamfan explained.

And I'm with Mathilde uP as far as her suggestion about light is concerned.

And Sauvignon Blanc is a great white wine indeed !

If you allow me some critics I would say :

1) The top of the bottle is cropped
2) There's a stair on the left background that is a bit too light and it is distracting : I would darken that part if not clone stamp it to black at all.
3) I would have corrected perspective : both the bottle and the glass lean towards the center of the shot.
4) the glass on the bottle shoulder and some other "unidentified objects" behind the glasses are distrurbing elements in the background.

However this is an home and not a studio , so , prosit !

Thanx for the tips

The stairs were orginally black in the shot, but I was playing around with the lighting with PS... I'll try and see what I can do with it

Hmm, i find the stairs adds to the poetry of the photo. But cropping away the chair (? ) at the left and part of the underside would help.
