Nice job on the teapot,Jeremy. If you are looking for critique,my nits would be,#1 the grey background(might be able to correct that in NX2 with a few selection control points),#2 the reflections in the knob on the lid(very distracting) and #3 maybe a little more room on the top. But all in all,nicely done. I played around with glass during last winters months and had a lot of fun experimenting. Black glass or shiney black surfaces were the biggest challenges that I ran into. Just have fun with it and try out different settings and light placement.

I agree Rick. Those 3 issues should be fairly easy to resolve. I need to balance the background lighting and get an actual backdrop given the "fisheye" effect of the lid-glass orb. The crop is an easy fix of course.
