    it will be good if you could...
    use the longest focal length to shoot
    use white board to block off all the ugly reflection on the bottle

    the bottle looks... funny...
    perspective... the neck looks swollen and the bottle looks small
    pour more Baileys into the cup?
    crop a bit "i dont know how to put it"

    and the shadows, i assume you meant for light to come from the left...

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Could you please tell me what do you mean by slanted? Looks straight to me. Hmm.

    I agree with the ugly reflections from the bottle. Will try to improve next time

    About the baileys, those were the last few drops from the bottle. Only if I had not consumed it beforehand. Hehe.

    Does the bottle really look funny? I couldn't really tell. Oh well.

    Thanks again.

    THe use of the longest focal is prefered because using wide angle will most likely cause it to have distortion...

    he is using 35mm focal length of the 18~70 lens to shoot this, so have the perspective distortion,
    usually, we will use a mid tele for product shot.

    35mm focal length on a D50 are not consider wide angle, but still will have distortion.

    the vertical line of the bottle, and the vertical line of the tumblers are not parallel, hence looks slanted.
