    Here's a shot of a crystal skull (it's a vodka bottle). Shot with my SELP 16-50mm on my NEX-3N.

    Beautiful framing! Maybe you could do something to get the viewers attention to the eyes of the skull? I personally am drawn to the light blue part at the left, which - I'm sure - is not where you want my eyes to look at.

    Thanks! Yes, I also thought about the eyes but not sure how to make them the focal point. Maybe getting rid of the blue part would help, though I really like the splash of color. If only the eyes were glowing :)

    Well, it may be a pretty tough task in post processing, but with some brighter layers and special brushes it should be possible to make them magically glowing - which would look awesome.
