They are gorgeous photos!
I used to belong to an active photo club. It had 200 or so people in it. They met once a week from September through June, and typically 100 people would attend the weekly meetings. Once a month they had a competition. Judges usually came from outside of the club, but it was the club's leadership who chose the judges. As such, there was always some bias toward what the club leadership wanted. Anything outside the club's orientation was derided. It was really fun to have people laugh at my photos. For me, it was conform or exit the club. I chose the latter.
If you have a club that is really adventurous, you'll know it. You have two very interesting and compelling photos. (I'm still wondering how you did the inverted glass and kept the liquid in there.) If you're criticized for having unusual photos, they're fools. If you are criticized for not taking something far enough but are otherwise encouraged to go yet farther, then you may be in good company.
Do they qualify as "still life"? If they were mine, I'd be proud to enter both. If you can only enter one, I'd suggest the glasses. But then the better photo may be the bananas...
