Glass of Scotch
Lens: Pentax A 50 1.7 Camera: K20 ISO: 100 Aperture: F1.7 

Finished the bottle and had to take a pic.
Thanks for looking.

I love the coloring and the lighting. The bottle is a bit of a distraction for me, but I think it would be too bland without it. Overall, it's a great pic.

This would be a perfect product shot if you were to move the label into the focal plane. But seeing how it isn't a product shot... it is still an almost perfect image.

There should be a little space between the glass and the bottle.

To me it's cut too tight on the bottom I would do it vertically to have a glass reflection seen more and maybe play with dof to make bottle more recognizable.
Good color!!!

I'd rotate it a few clicks counterclockwise.

I found that too much reflection for the glass was a little distracting. A little less dof might be something to play with, thanks.

I think he meant the picture. It may be an optical illusion, but the liquid looks a bit tilted.

Yes, the whole picture. I assume you have the leaning Pentax viewfinder as I do in both bodies.

I like your shot, it has a few problems as mentioned, but I still like it better than one of my old ones.....although I like my Cognac better than Scotch. I might have done better, but I had been drinking.....
Best Regards!

Needs a rotation and the composition needs tidied up. I'd maybe have stopped down slightly (perhaps f/2.8) to make more of the glass within the DoF; it's just too shallow.

Other than that, I like the exposure and the feel of the image. I am a whisky drinker .

I come back to look a couple of days later and I agree with the rotation comments.
Thanks for all the positive feedback.
