Horrible I know but gotta get something in for the MS Tourney. FWIW, the only light source used was a flashlight. I removed the glass to light the bottle to avoid reflections and then placed it back in when I was lighting the background and crazy thing floating in the air.

This would have been much better if the bottle were tilted on its side, so that it looked like it really was pouring into the glass. Nice effect, though.

Good Idea but could be better (imo) if the bottle was on an angle, to pour and the light actually touched the bottle. Still Great BG

really good lighting on the bottle and glass - the 'fluid' seems a little forced here - have the bottle tilted to the glass would have worked better - still a 7

It bugs me that it looks like the glass is tilting. Almost like it's going to fall over. The bottle is nice and straight, but the angle I think is what makes the glass look odd. Background is very nice for the photo, I like the lighting in the background. The painting with light looks a little sloppy, and unorganized, but serves the purpose well. I wonder if it would have more impact if someone were pouring the light out of the bottle, as it doesn't make much sense for it to be jumping out of the bottle into the glass on it's own. Focus and clarity are very good.

Very good shot, excellent lighting (not just the "painted" part). Would have been great to have the smoke appear from inside the bottle, guess you couldn't get the flashlight al the way in :)
