    they are technically great, nothing wrong with the lighting. get rid of the vignette. we are past instagram. they will become contemporary.

    To shoot glass objects properly, there is more to lighting than just lighting. Glass objects will only look better if there are shadows. Since glass is transparent, it does not throw much shadows. But glass is reflective, so you create reflections on the glass to make them look better and more 3D.

    This is a good video on shooting glass.

    This is another idea, good for frosted bottles.

    Other comments on your 2 photos:

    1. lose the vignette
    2. watch your framing. Want to cut off, cut off more. If want to include, give more breathing room.
