I used backlighting for this one. The Amber glow is from the table lamp on the side.

This is quite an amazing display of setup knowledge. I do not recall having seen a glass/water image which got the idea of movement inside the glass across as well as this one. It is as if you were looking at the surface of a pool, since ripples at the side of glass seem to be a physical impossiblity. Your use of ice is witty!
And the slight touch of amber really makes this shot for me for what concerns colours.

I really like the composition and colour, especially in the stem of the glass, well done! A lovely photo!

The image is wonderfully done. The boarders are distracting to me.

Very nice. Just a nit--It's cropped a bit to close at the bottom.

Good idea and lighting but I don't really like how the perspective changes from the foot to the top of the glass. Maybe use a longer lens?
