    Re: Still Life critique, please.

    I agree with others thought of to cluttered. One thing to remember. The bottle is to be the subject. And anything else is to enhance that. In the first shot it was off to the side. What was the subject? It was not the bottle. The second shot is better. I am no expert to say the least. So take my thoughts with a grain of salt. But it is my thought and I figured I'd share it.

                            Hi Bill -

                            Thanks very much! Expert or not, your thoughts were insightful and very much appreciated. Did you like the final cropped picture any better than the first two?

                            For what it's worth, the winery purchased all three shots with the intention of using at least one in their flyers or website. And as someone else mentioned, if you're shooting for money and the client likes it (and pays!) all other criticism is moot. So I'm happy

                            But I will take your, and everyone else's, criticism to heart and pay more attention to highlighting the product in future shots like this.

                            Thanks again!

                            Fiat lux. Fiat vox.
