The Brand X bottle doesn't cast much of a shadow, but there's some kind of shadow to the lower right of it that comes from nowhere. The Leet bottle has a lot of black in it, where I'd expect bounce light on the lower surfaces and some extra environment in the refraction.
Thanks Jeremy for your comments..
I am using XSI and mental ray to render.
Alright, here is my second try . I ve tried to fix the shadows, and managed to increase caustics effects.
Actually I would like to put some reflections on the bottles. But first, I will try the basic reflection and if I can find time, I will try to use HDR images..
And as far as I ve seen, there are some low res shadows and the brandx bottle is not good as I want.
As always, C&C s are welcome.
