    It'd also be better if there were beads of condensation on the can I think.

    Showing, not telling. Don't use a giant aperture to force your viewers to look at something. Yes, it's part of composition, but it shouldn't be all of your composition.

    would've been better if it was more biased toward the bottom right.

    tonal range is great though, great contrast. the white part of the table though is quite destracting. you should burn it in more to darken it up or crop it out like i mentioned above because your eyes move to it and there's nothing there.

    When you absolutely have to. ie: you need a certain shutter speed and you cannot get it any other way

    Things generally get better as you stop down.

    Most people complain about the lack of depth of field when shooting wide apertures -- and that's becauase they've been forced to shoot wide open by the lighting situation.

    Lenses that are great wide open cost much much much MUCH more than others. Even then, they still get a little better by stopping down -- though the perfect lens would be the same -- read: great -- at any aperture
