I really like these shot glasses in the form of shot gun shells. Clever pun.

Open and edit in LR for brightness, contrast, and sharpen. Crop and open in PS, save for web.

I would have liked to clone out the line created by the mat the glasses are sitting on. It is a disposable cutting board I used so the syrup would not ruin the cloth.

I would also like to fix the lens distortion that causes the glasses to appear tilted.

I would add a point to this image if the hat were not there. Draws your eyes away from the shot glasses.

nice smoke shape. seems weird where it's placed, I would have expected it above one of the two glasses, not in the middle.

the liquid that's spilled looks like metal, it's interesting, although maybe not your intentions. I think a bit more contrast would set this image apart and make it stronger.

Cool shotglasses! I like the smoke too, not overly fond of the background.
