This picture was taken at home around 8pm. The room was lit with one dim lamp. I used a flashlight to highlight the bottle, feet, and glass during the 8 second exposure. The lighting turned out just as I wanted. I made minor adjustments to contrast using Photoshop Elements.

The poential for a great advertising shot. Superbly lit, beautiful tones, deep rich colour.
I will copy in some comments I have put into some other pictures.
My only concern is, as you may have guessed from the amount of discussion on the forum re "painting with light" is whether it is painting with light.
Having been lucky enough to judge what is now a few hundred competitions in the last 30 years I feel I should say the first thing that happens is that they are sorted and any that do not immediatly seem to fit the category are dumped (hard but a fact). This is why so many competitions also run an "open category". Your picture, as impressive as it is, would, I feel have been rejected at this stage. "Painting with Light" has a fairly tight definition in photography but still allows a lot of lattitude for creativity.
I suspect that your scores may not reflect what the picture is worth which is a great shame.
However This is such a good picture with so much potential (cropping for a foot advert, cropping for an AA advert furniture advert - that I cannot mark it down.

Nice lighting. A fire in the background may have been perfect!
