I think that reflection looks bit weird / fake. It should start little lower and be less opaque, than it is now, IMO. Otherwise - nice product shot! :)

Yup you're right, I don't have any information for the reflection because the product doesn't symmetrical, so the last thing I can do to make it looks real is by drawing the reflection it self, unfortunately I'm not that good at drawing. So I think the best thing I can do to replicate the reflection is just by copying the object and place it bellow the object. Perhaps I can put a shadow but it will change the whole idea.

General rule of thumb is that reflections are usually little darker and more blurred than a subject. But their position, darkness and blurriness depends mostly on the lighting and reflecting surface. If I would try to replicate whole reflection I would keep those three and mind and tried to find best position by trial and error (there's no easy formula here for every case). :)

omg there is everything wrong!
