In home stretch, just little things to add now... like melted wax on the candels, bottles with labels with wine in them and some wine poured out in a puddle... Who knows what else i'll think about adding as I work.

My critique on this step would be that the bottles look more metallic than glass? Also, maybe a little less uniform look to all 5 of them?

Glass looks better. The bottle in the middle has quite a thin neck? Is that double thick glass with the outer layer really transparent? Also it seems like the wax on the bottom candle isnt hanging 'down' down? More sort of 'slanty' down. The wax itself is good.

P.s. Can I ask about your candle flame geometry/shader set up? All procedural? Point light? Shader glow?

Candel is just a ramp with another ramp as a tranparencny. the flame is a flame shape geo with yet another ramp and then a glow attached to that. Over top of each candel is a volume light and a point light.

Their are only 5 lights in that whole scene 2 of which are in the back inside the buldings

I'll fix the angle of the wax thats droppping was to tired last night rendering it over and over again.
