Nice set up. Try using softer lighting. Too much reflection on the center label, not enough light on the dark label. Consider a polarizing filter also.

Many thanks to you. I like the idea of using a Polarizing Filter.

Cheers Mate,

I agree that this image would have benefited from some directional light source like off camera lighting from above and off to the side. If the shadows were too harsh, you could use a white poster board to reflect some light into the shadows. That would give the image more depth and also might cause some catchlight reflections on the fruit and the wine bottles. It is a good well exposed image, but the lighting is just a little flat.

Thanks very much for your input.
