Just messing about yesterday at my friends studio with some light set ups. (Thanks John)

I hope you didn't leave the rose in there too long? Wouldn't want to spoil the whisky!

It's got a very nice "Olde Worlde" feel to it, if you get what I mean?

composition is excellent really like the framing of the products, I would have got some more light through the bottle to give a warm glow and amber light, great work though its most impressive

Good invitation the glass slightly forward of the bottle even if if it does have a rose in it. Very impressive.

I bet it would have been even better shot if you would have consumed a double shot b4 hand !! lol.... nice shot anyways! though bit of more lighting from the top would have helped!
