:? Just my opinion, but somehow it doesn't look very inviting / appealing to me.As Peter expressed, I can't tell whats in the glass. I much prefer the apples Jane!

Well, the cherry was swimming in Asti. *scratches her head*

It maynot be the best picture but it was a lot of fun to take. You have to get the level just right, ya know?

I think I have to put it in the same category as the pork kabobs. It doesn't do a thing for me.

you know what

i think it has potential

here's my idea :-D

1) shoot from a bit of a lower angle not much, but enough to show the bottome of the glass a bit more...

2)change up the lighting a bit...

if you shoot at night, in a dark room...

set up the glass, either on a cloth of some kind (slightly wrinkled ) or one a wood table...

make sure it's big enough that you don't see anything but the table (if you shoot in the dark, you can control what you see with the lighting...making the rest black)

then, find a flashlight, or a small lamp(one that you can point...not a normal table lamp...preferably a spot light type lamp)...set up a tripod (if you don't have one, you'll have to skip the night idea, and just shoot it in the day time) and position the lamp to the right of the glass...

this will show the texture of the wrinkled cloth, and/or sidelightthe cup really nice

it may also make the liquid glow a bit

hope this helps...

Vito
