Very nice Cindy...'ve done very well with this. The bubbles, fruit, focus & colour are all excellent & in the right place, as is the composition. I haven't read any of the other replies so I hope I'm not repeating anyone: 2 considerations...

1. Specular highlight burns top right rim of glass & top of stem: can be avoided by shooting glass without front/front-side lighting of any sort. Use rear-side light source or reflector & or reflector/light source from below instead.

2. You have lost shape & definition in the right stem edge. Solution: A black reflector strategically positioned out of camera to the right.

The slightly darker toned background top frame matters little visually, unless your brief calls for absolute uniformity.

These may seem trivial & picky, but believe me when I suggest that they can make a huge difference to an accomplished art director or picture editor who may be assessing your work.

I might also mention that this sort of subject is one of the toughest to get right.

Well done

Cheers :->
