Default Glass marbles

I did this for participating in a 'creative challenge' contest with glass as the theme. Didn't get selected, as there were much better entries. Still, I was happy with my work: photographing the marbles with good lighting by placing them on a light source, cropping them and pasting on to a black background, and then creating a reflection effect to give depth to the picture. What do you think?

Looks good but a couple of small suggestions - move it up so the line of reflection is centred and every marble should really touch its own reflection - it looks like the green and orange marbles are floating slightly.

Good observation and thanks, Martin. I think I had worked on an upside down image. It stands corrected now.

Very nice work, Raghu! I love the way lighting is reflecting off the marbles.
