Thank you!

I'm afraid the green color is not resulting from a $300 secret process... mint syrup ;-)

As for the glow, it's lit from underneath (there are 2 holes in the black surface under the transparent glossy surface so that strobes are directed directly on the glass and on the bottle).

Very creative and fun. I think if the composition was a bit stronger, the concept would have put it over the top.

Cool concept and unusual color - goes well with the title. No direct light on the ivy makes sense - otherwise it would be distracting. The only thing I would probably change is to make sure the Absolut bottle is not smack in the center of the pic. Nice concept and execution.

I really like how some of the leaves are in a silhouette while some are lit. I like the green color too. Excellent job.

Love the concept and composition. There are a few spots (lower left on the bottle) where the color looks like it got a bit funky though. 9

Absinthe! The green is so vibrant in this image. I also love the ivy creeping around. I would love it even more if it came even further around the neck of the bottle. I like the addition of the glass...however if this was an ad, I think the jagged edges of the glass would disturb the viewer too much. The jagged edges are too obviously evil. A normal glass would be the angel with devil horns in my opinion. I still love your use of green and the back-lighting is perfect. The ivy really keeps the viewer on the subject.

Love the way you lit the bottle, I've got to work on that. Cool broken glass too. You might not have needed the plant.

good idea and lighting, composition could be enhanced, maybe by a closer crop and portrait orientation.

Now I'm going to have the song 'Poison Ivy' on my mind all afternoon...
