That's cool. I like the old photo treatment your gave to the picture.

But I think that the shape of the upper part is a bit weird. It's not round enough. If you correct it, the reflections are going to look a lot more natural. The base of the glass could be a bit bigger.

The wood texture looks to small. It makes the glass appear as huge.

And composition wise, I think the glass is to close to the side of the pictures. The dark/empty area on the right doesn't balance with all the details on the left.

Beautifull !
it created an atmosphere.

i liked the glowing reflections.
but the edges of the glass could be stronger.
a tiny white line contouring the shape and the opening.

try studying some photo references and renaissence paintings.
(it helped me a lot)
