Hello folks.

Can you please look at this, and tell me why no one likes it?

Well, that's an easy answer—I can't load the photo. It gives a 403/Forbidden error.

I can't get it to display, either, but clicking on the non-displaying photo does bring it up.

If it helps, I find that the shadow is too dark, and I'm not a fan of the window treatments. Perhaps a thin reflector to fill some of the shadow on the bottle while still leaving the cast shadow dark?

I still like it. It's a good shot. Maybe folks are nonplussed by its apparent static(read "easy") lighting, whereas the amount of thoughtfulness about aperture of flash is not immediately apparent. Exposure, focus, DoF, tonal width and differing textures all work.

I like the light and shadow on the table, but I agree with Matthew - maybe a bit more backlighting to bring out the outline of the bottle. It's a bit hard to distinguish from the dark backdrop.

The bottle looks to me like it's leaning a bit--may be true, may be a lens or lighting effect?
Also--not very sharp text.
Agree about the shadow, and the need for some backlight or background light to provide more separation and get the bottle's outline defined.
The bottom has the edge of something (card stock or table?) visible--oops.

Shots like this are all about the details as much as the overall mood.
It's a great scene and idea (love the faint window grid you have)--it just needs to be executed better.

I look forward to the re-shoot! Cool

Thank you folks!! Crumbs, I feel better now.
I was getting really paranoid..............................

I'm very grateful for you all pointing out the flaws. Now I can look at the reshoot with a "new" eye.

Aaaahhh.........Much more relaxed now/////////////////// Cool

There are no flaws. It is perfect. It is a Platonic Ideal and the very Type of perfection. Ignore everyone, as this is a plot to unhinge your canine mind.

Couldn't read it yesterday from work, now I can see the image.

As previously said, text is a little soft.

For my eye there is not quite enough separation from the background, needs just a tiny bit more light on the bottle or teh background, either would work.
