I haven't had much time for photography lately, so here's my attempt at being creative. Flash was placed under the table, facing the wall. Camera was set to manual exposure, f/8 1/250s ISO 400. Flash was set to 1/64 power. Remote flash triggering was done using a Cactus v4 trigger. Hope you like it.

Not that I have any clue, but I like the light effect. Would be improved if the bottle didn't have labels. I'm wondering if it would be better with more/less of the side edges of the table showing.

I like it, i would take the label off, and also i would make the edges of the table equal in the frame :wink:

I agree with George. Even corners of the table in the frame would look better. Perhaps if you can turn the bottle so the typography on the glass is visible, that would make the wine look really classy.
