In both, I wanted to the cigar to be in focus as well. I used too small of an aperture and forgot to double check.

In the top one, I wanted a bit more of the HDR/surreal while avoiding haloing. I also feel like the background's fighting for attention.

In the bottom one, as Foxy pointed out, I was going for a vintage look. I don't feel like I got the saturation, hue, and vignette to pull together with the induced noisiness. Also wanted the label to show through a little more...
