I'm just not seeing any of the creative aspects I'd expect in a conceptual photo. (i.e. an unusual point of view, perspective, interesting leading lines or a particular mood, etc.) It's a good snapshot I suppose, but really, other than advertising for the whisky company what was the concept here?

(I don't mean to be harsh, but I try to justify my votes with a comment as to what I'm seeing in a shot. This used to be a community full of critical but helpful comments. It seems people just vote to be able to post. I miss the more thoughtful discussions that helped me improve my work.)

Bottle random selection.
Yours infinite goodness.
Do you play guitar?
Do you understand what you see?
It is not always the brightness, contrast, composition prevails.
Some of the images to be seen with open brain.

#2 Ix Ray: I do play guitar, and there's nothing particularly phenomenal to see in this performance as you've presented it. If I am not seeing what you see, then let me know what it is you want the viewer to see. Maybe I can offer suggestions to make it more clear. As photographers we all want to convey something, and our art is only successful to the extent that we acheive this. Hopefully we bring something to the results a non-photographer with a smart phone would not. This way our art serves to open minds.

Thank you for engaging in the discussion!

I think a tighter crop might highlight the intention. See attached.
