Filled a coke can with water and put it in the freezer for a couple of days.
I placed it on a sheet of glass in front of a black backdrop.
Two softboxed strobes from the front.

Pretty minimal editing or than to desat the yellows

Nice shot, good solid black background, only thing that spoils it for me is the 'Multipack Can' around the top, but that's just me being picky..

Not. The real thing was made with cane sugar and came in a green glass bottle. (Am I dating myself with that observation?) Like the shot, however, effective lighting, colors and detail. Might be just a touch of tonemapping used to give it some pop. ("POP"... that's soft drink humor, get it? Ok, maybe it wasn't that funny after all.)

Very good product shot, though you'd want to not obscure the word "pack" to just the "..ck" part, due to possible misinterpretation.

technically it looks great. But it's not a very interesting picture 7

Nice setup. That must be wax, right?
