Default Still Life with FZ40

I've never tried anything like this before, but really happy with the result and with the IQ from the FZ40. This used a combination of back lighting (reflected from underneath and off the white cardboard backdrop) and a softer front light (with umbrella).

Sorry that this was posted twice - I thought I had failed to post it properly the first time...

Thanks flyhigh; the yellow idea sounds really interesting, although I'm not sure where the yellow cellophane would go? Do you mean on the backdrop?

i meant lighting ..... use it with some powerful light source so that there sre some sparkle/ shine on the glass body?

Thanks for the feedback. Flyhigh, that makes sense - I'll have to try something like that.
