First shot at a still life using flash. Wanted a really moody, old fashioned feel. Used a single speedlight with a small candle behind the sherry decanter to light the liquid.

As I said, I haven't seen someone for sometime now, who are pushing as hard as you John. Apart from the composition, which is a bit flat, the lighting is really flat and uninspiring. Some added fill light to lift the colours in the sherry and the metal and glass details. Carefully placed rim-lighting, which are typically used for products, would have added much needed magic!
