    You lucky guy! You beat me to it, Yegor. I've been thinking of shooting some bottle or glass work and you have already done it! I like what you did. You did a good job on your first try. Now, if I may comment.

    1. The Rim lighting is really nice. My initial reaction was that the framing is too tight, you cropped the image too close to the subject. Maybe show some more empty space next time?

    2. The sea shell can compliment the bottle by showing it at an angle. I'm not seeing a lot from it since you showed it directly in line with the bottle. If you angle it a little bit, your side lighting will show more curves and shadow details that we cannot see right now.

    3. I would also probably introduce a very small amount of fill light on the right side of the bottle by using a white cardboard reflector. That would create a more 3-dimensional look on the bottle because of the added fill light.

    You're a fast learner! I'm proud of you, Yegor. Keep on experimenting! We are also learning from you as well.

    Thanks, Jiro! Yes, I see some omissions. Has cut off properly, but was mistaken at a choice of a framework. Still I did a shot from hands, without a support. A fuse not sharp - I used new FISH eye 10-17 PENTAX. It is the first attempt! I shall study

    I love the shell and I love the bottle, but I also prefer the bottle with a touch more light in it. Still great shots - creative.

    Yegor these are all very appealing, especially the last one. That one, the bottle has a little more space above and below it and I like the way you have angled it to catch the light across the front. Another might be to have the bottle angled and the shell as well, angled to catch the light. Very nice ideas!

    Thank you all to you! Yes, on the first photo I instead of to add a frame, have imposed it on picture and have closed a photo
