This image was constructed for Nikon's annual photo contest, my first attempt.
It is made up of 4 separate photos, the background, the upwards glass, the downwards glass and the wine pouring out of downwards glass.
I haven't constructed anything like this before, it was good fun, but lots and lots of work.
Best part is that I learned so much about taking photos, especially lighting and I also learned a lot about using Photoshop.

Camera is D70s, lens Tamron 18 - 200, flash SB800 used in wireless mode so I could play with positioning the flash.
The photos of the glasses were focal length 75mm, 1/60sec, f9.
