Re: My Product photography portfolio - good enough to call it professional?

The whole concept of "professional" is a bit moot. If you can get paid for it, it's professional, IMHO.

Also, IMHO, you still have a lot to learn. There are numerous examples of top quality watch photographs to be seen on manufacturers' sites. If you want to compete with them, you need to learn from them first.

The brooch looks good, the candle is floating in darkness and you can't see the bottom, the glasses have reflections in the lenses.

I would suggest you read "Light Science and Magic" to get a better understanding of lighting reflective objects.

Sorry if this is not encouraging, but since you asked ...
