I had an image all ready to enter but, after looking at it a day later, I thought it was possibly too abstract. So I spent the last two evenings before the challenge trying to get a decent glass image ready (which is not so easy in basic editing, especially with glass). Fingers crossed.....

isn't it interesting how the surface area of all three glasses goes so dark? What part of the magic kitchen is that reflecting? I'm trying to think it through but my only guess is it's dark in your magic kitchen, and that's the ceiling - do I get a prize?

But if you put a white bounce or diffusion tent (commonly known as a white sheet) up there, do you mess up the cool reflection in the plexiglass/glass?

Now I have something to ponder as I drive home this frigid night - maybe warm here by Germany standards, but -11 C is cold here!

Oh no! My clinical evaluation of your excellent photo has degraded into a personal message - whatever shall we do?

I remain a fan. :-)

When is the drop going to hit, almost the silence before the storm, very nice finish.

Nicely lit and great reflections, though I'd like to see more of them, and the tilted 'horizon' is distracting.

Nice and clear. The reflections in the middle glass bother me. It also seems a bit oversharpened.

I was waiting for this one to turn up during voting and here it is - the famous three glasses shot. How about something completely different; four glasses anyone!
