Well Dave the only thing that distracts me is the rough edging on the packaging otherwise a nice creative shot  :)

Thanks Trickee and Alan

I under exposed by 2 stops, did try a bit of burn and dodge in PP didnt quite get it right so went with this shot.

Anyway think I need to do a re shoot to improve it, as Im not that happy with it, Looking at it now, dont like the ragged edges on the wrappers, should have used scissors, to cut it straight I think, dunno be interested to hear what members think,

Ripped ?

or

Cut ?

and turn the mint over in the tube, so Polo word is visible as well

Also the light is just from natural window light, no other
lighting

Not happy with the graining on the blue guess that came from the under exposing as, shot -1 didnt show much and 0 shots showed no graining, any ideas

Little tweaks LOL

thanks again for all your inputs

Dave

       First off. I don't have the patience to try this kind of shot, so hat's off to you for trying.
       I think with this kind of thing, detail is everything.
       So.
             I'm fine with the torn edge on the open end because it looks natural.
             I'd like to see the closed end tidied up a bit.
             Perhaps rotate the tube to show all of the "Polo" logo.
             Yes, turn the mint in the tube around.
             And maybe turn the linked mints in a bit, say, 45 degrees to the tube.
      I think your lighting is quite good, and even if you had a studio full of lights you'd only be trying to recreate window light.

                                  Graham. :tup:

    How did you link them? I'd be reaching for a junior hacksaw! ::)

Many thanks Graham I'll give your ideas a go, I just snapped the polo in half threaded it through the hole, dampened the 4 edges pressed them back together till they stuck  :tup: I did try cutting a section out but the mint just kept snapping
