Wow - didn't think this would do so well!! The back lit glass thing is a bit cliched, but I wanted to see how well I could do it.

How I did it...

1. One darkened room.

2. Six shot glasses filled with homemade blue jelly.

3. A glass shelf from my hi-fi stand (propped up on DVD cases so you can't see the table beneath).

4. Back lighting from a light blue gradient mapped image displayed on my monitor.

5. Lots of glass polish!

absolutely gorgeous cyan. i wonder how did you gt the darker blue inside the glass. top middle one still has cyan on the back face and uneven gradation suggests they are not filled with liquid either.
dpc history suggests, this one should be the podium contender.
