It took some work getting all those peas into the wine bottle, then back into the freezer they went!

I like the textures. Did you try the shot with the glass closer to the camera?

nice idea; wonderful how you minimized glare / reflections of extraneous components, etc. Good color balance

This is a nice sharp, well lit, image for the most part. Light could have been diffused a little, but I like the fact that you've used a good amount of light overall. One distraction for me is the reflection of the bottle and glass. I imagine you were trying to capture the wall reflection primarily, but I find the cutoff reflections a bit awkward. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

Excellent lighting and nice choice of colors.

The lighting is almost perfect in this very appealing and colorful shot. The only problem is the reflexions. Maybe just moving to your right would have done the trick, if you still had the same bg by doing so.

Nice idea and well executed. I like the reflections.

Very nice variety of colors.

nice arrangement of the objects. need to control your lighting on glass better (which is tricky) the bottle's spot on the bottom is too bright. also the background texture competes with the peas.

LOL! Funny idea and nicely executed! Nice use of reflective surface and textured wall behind.

good idea, hot spot on the bottom of the bottle is distracting

I can see why you are drinking alone :-) nice composition.
