A buddy of mine made me the wine, so I just thought he would enjoy this.
What do you think?:D

I'm sure he will enjoy it! It looks great, the glow behind the glass was an excellent touch!

hmm, i think just the opposite actually, i love the whole shot and think the glow behind the glass is just a little distracting

Sort of agree with Mandrogora. I feel the light behind the glass distracts from the focal point of the image...which to me is the cheese and grapes.

I like the glow. The shot works for me as a wine shot.

Interesting mix of lighting. While I like the glow behind the glass, in particular because you want to emphasize the wine for your friend, it does conflict a bit with the light on the front of the glass and bottle.

My only real nit-pick is the knife - one with a wooden handle or none at all. ;)

From a wine drinkers point of view: the wine glass is way too full, and isn't the typical shape for a pinot noir :p

From a photography point of view: lovely photo :)

Your image makes me hungry and thirsty ! I love the colors ... all except for the hi-key cover with all the low-key things in the image.

I now had a chance to work on your image. I hope my version helps you ...

with my monitor's settings I can clearly see a lot of the brush strokes on your edit.

I posted it to show how much better it would have been with it in key instead of the white as well as having deeper tones. I don't mind you seeing brush strokes since I did it quickly and didn't have a high res file.

You didn't mention how much better it looks without the white cloth.

I do like the tonal changes - can you change the knife to a wooden handle too? ;)
