I think this should have ranked much higher than 166th. I can't find anything wrong with this image. The lighting and use of space is spectacular. Maybe the subject wasn't interesting enough for the voters. I gave it a 10.

Nice composition and light. Would have been much better with some wine in the glass and the bottle. As it is it is a bit boring to look at. All this just imo, obviously. Good luck!

Nicely composed picture, very inviting. In my opinion the lighting on the background could be just a tad softer, as it is, it draws my attention away from the subject. The border seems to work well with this picture. Nice capture

That's an impressive border! What's it use, 20 percent of the image space? Nicely done!

I love the set-up.. the lighting on the glass and bottle are nice (except for the weird refelctions in the back of the bottle), but that blow out.. just a little too much.

Technically, this is almost excellent - the brand name isn't quite clear enough, especially with the glare in the middle. I like the black/white background; the bright area is perfect for the brand's tagline in an advertisement.

Well done composition

Lovely product shot. One little thing I would recommend on a shot like this is either having some wine in the glass and the remainder in the bottle, or having the empty glass and a full sealed bottle instead of an empty one.

One things for sure, an empty bottle was a good one. ;-) Cheers!

Now that's still-life done to perfection! Only tiny little nit-pick is that the innermost black frame is not evenly thick on all sides, it's a little thinner on the bottom.

Nice lighting

It is hard to read the Brand with the glare on the bottle. I like the composition here. Makes me want a drink right now.
