my second try in photographing bottles, only one light used and then merged together in photoshop.

Hmm. Good idea with wood on the bottom but there are too much of it, maybe better to crop it.
I would like this photo more with some motion in it.

Thanks man! Will keep that in mind next time!!

I completely understand with starting with this stuff. It ain't easy at all. This is what I think:

The lighting on the bottle and glass is literally, SPOT ON!

But... the lighting in total and composition isn't well executed.

I would crop just below the glass and bottle for a wider view instead of a square view, and get a flash with an Orange modifier over it to make the liquid really pop more. You may be able to recover a lot with the RAW file, but won't look as good as a flash being behind and the glass/bottle and low enough you don't see the flash (if this makes any sense at all)

Yeah it makes sense after reading it a couple of times, haha! Thanks for the critique and the nice words! I will test it out next time I shoot.

I look forward to seeing your results. I need to work on my lighting more, it aint the easiest with glass lol.
