    I like the strip of light in the BG, but these both look under exposed! If you could only add some light to the glasses/bottle.
    As for composition, I would have placed the bottle more forward then the glasses and perhaps grouped the glasses together with the bottle to a side, not in the middle like you have. :)

    I like the first one more then the second. Both are under exposed though. I would try maybe filling one glass up and get it foamy and having an empty bottle next to it.

    you could add a strip of tin foil behind the bottle to reflect a little light through. Then the bottle wouldn't seem so dark.

    Tinfoil will probably make too harsh of a light, but if you cut out a piece of white paper in the shape of the bottle and stick it to the back it ought to do the trick.
