I wasn't sure where product photography would normally be posted - still life? But thought wine/champagne would go well with food  :p

Went to the studio to try out some different items, and would love to know how to do better. Is it a no-go to have the edge light to far in, on the bottle? As I have on the first image. I came to the conclusion, backlighting, a lamp from above and 2 reflectors, seemed to be what I had the best result with (the second image). But I think the reflections in the bottle are still to visible/messy?

Also tried porcelain, but that went really bad - do anyone know, if people mostly shoot porcelain with daylight through a window? I had a hard time getting long, soft highlights.

The new forum Fashion, Editorial and Commercial has a thread for product photography, two pages so far.

I like your first photo better than your second; the wide highlights in the second make the vertical edges unrealistically prominent. But this has nothing to do with pro product photographers' opinions.

In both images, the bottom edge of the bottle isn't distinct from the background.

Ah thanks - that tread didn't come up when I used the search function.

Actually I brushed/cloned at the bottom as I thought it looked a little weird before, guess I should have kept it.

Thanks :)
