Sorry had to submit something for DPL.

POST: I kind of enjoyed setting this kind of shot up. light under table pointed at the three strips of cardboard. Glasses cleaned to within an inch of their life. Had to be so careful with the water, in avoiding droplets.

nice work! Glad you described the set up. I don't think alot of people realize how much time goes into a shot like this.Very interesting effects with the color.The middle glass would stand alone,the stem colors are great,I love the colors in the glass above the water,3 colors in the middle 2 on either side. Just getting the water level in each as close as you did,had to be a little tough.Anyway,great shot,you do great work.
