Old ginger ale bottle

Really great shot. I love the lines, the colors - especially of the bottle, the detail captured in the letters. The light is very nicely diffused throughout the photo. I like that there are different planes to view and the background is very geometric. The only thing I'd change is the felt piece supporting the bottle. I think that something ceramic or wooden would have added a better look and completed this better. But, I do like it. #6437

Thanks for commenting. yes the felt was problematic but this was in a museum and the case was locked. :} I was thinking of cloning it out but then it might look artifical. I might still try that. Thanks for the feedback. #9350
