Ok, here we go. Not really spectacular, but it's glass
Photo 1: inside a old farmhouse that got demolished to make place for an extra water reserve area in case the big river nearby should flood.

Photo 2: broken windows, taken somewhere in Belgium at an old place.
Photo 3: old beer bottles, taken in our own barn just after we moved in.

Wild posterization on that shot zman. Was that from the Topaz software?

Yes. The original image was kind of "blah", and an attempt to convert it into a B&W image just wasn't working for me, so Topaz Adjust to the rescue.

The glass itself is beautifully captured.
I wonder if it wouldn't be possible to minimize the posterization in the background?

I think converting the original to B&W and then play a little with curves and contrast could've done the trick. Like Bart said, the polarization in the background looks just a bit overdone. The artwork is beautiful though.
