ill take a shot at it just for kicks later tonight
but for now i have to prime my stupid bathroom
eh forget my try
ill just point out what looks wrong with the bottles
1. the caps are on the bottles still, looks off
2. the liquid in the bottle isnt level as it should be, should be slanted to be parallel with the ground
3. the blue bottle is a bit too bright and looks fake, while the other bottle is a bit too dark
4. the reflections on the bottles are off, making it look... well.... off
I had a go at this cos the bottles were still not looking right on the other tries I had seen, they're not blending right, the colour of the liquid in the bottle is very bright because it was photohgraphed on a white background with very strong lighting.
In breif - the first thing I did was removed the old bottle with the clone tool, did this very quickly and roughly because the new bottle would go on top.
I made 3 copies of the bottle after I had trimmed the white space.
The first layer I set as an overlay so that the colour of his hand and the cupboard behind him showed through, but it was too much so the next layer was set to 50% opacity, the glass off the bottle looked much better but the label and bottle top were also looking glassy so with the third layer I masked the top and label back in.
Then I added a 50% grey overlay layer and added some dark grey over the bottle to darken it because it was still too bright.
Its still not perfect but I think it looks much better, you can see the tonal change where his hand is through the bottle.
