I was trying to get a low key shot of glass on a black background. It turned out better than expected.

Hope you enjoy it. Any comments are always welcome (good or bad).

I agree, maybe something placed within the glass?

Very cool. It does make a good abstract.

Thank you all for your comments.

I did originally have the glass filled with water and tried to capture drops of food colouring moving through it. It didn't work out due to bubbles forming in the water and the fact that the food colouring had been in the cupboard for far too long.
I will be trying it again though.

I am thinking a deep rich red Hunter Valley Shiraz would go very nicely in the glass.In the interest of a great picture of course.
