Given that the seal on the cap doesn't appear to have been broken it appears the party may have ended before it got started

I like this one but found all the glare off the wet stones competing with the reflections on the bottle making it a bit of a muddle in a puddle making it difficult for me to focus on the bottle. I played with it using adjustment layers, hue/saturation adjustments and selective blurring and sharpening to try to make the bottle contrast more...

I'd suggest a modest vignette.

Nice image. Well seen and composed. Since it is practically an abstract to begin with, I would suggest darkening it a bit to really bring out the colors - particularly the blue-purple reflections to contrast with the yellows, greens, and golds.

Here is an example with a subtle edge vignette as Aunti suggested:

Really like the comp.
Great find.
Beautiful color play, abstract quality.
Implied story is a plus.
I like the original but agree its pretty bright in the upper left corner and less so in the bottom left, upper right. Vignetting makes good sense to me too.
I like both the reworks, even though they go in different directions. Lots of useful interpretations. In both reworks, there is a bit more depth/height to the bottle, usefully providing some more separation.

I think the edit with the blue taken out, really works well, I had fun trying to duplicate it.

Cheers Ray
