Congratulations!

By the way, how did you make the reflection your camera on the bottle invisible?

Thanks for all the nice replies!

Yes, this was taken at ISO 6400. I knew I wanted the shot to be a bit "gritty", so I wasn't worried about using 6400, but I WAS surprised at how CLEAN 6400 is with the X-E2!! I actually ADDED some extra grain and "grit" into the image!!

Re: the reflection. I did use Photoshop to remove the reflection of the camera and myself from the middle of the bottle. There was no way to avoid my reflection in the curved glass. I did not re-touch any other part of the image, though.

I think the main thing I took away from this exercise, was that I could arrange some household "props" on a coffee table in my living room, use only a large window to light the scene, and still create a very "professional" looking image.

Thanks!
