Thanks Greg !

The lighting was quite simple: one 100W. Elinchrom in a 25"x25" softbox at 4 feet and 45 degrees (above and left of the camera), a 25"x50" white reflector at 2 feet on the right of the subject, and an SB-800 on a chair, looking up, just underneath the glass, which was sitting on a sheet of transparent acrylic !

BTW, here's a pic of the lighting set-up !

Thanks Eric, Walt, Arcinio, Steven, Mike and Tom !

Arcinio: i guess that, without the light coming from underneath, the glass and the water wouldn't be as bright !

Tom: i know there's some stains on the glass ! I tried to clean them, but i guess they're inside the matierial ! ...next time i'll use a real crystal glass... but as i shot it at my workshop, i don't have these facilities over there !

BTW, after re-viewing the image, i'm under the impression that the glass -not beiing the principal subject- is too sharp... IMO it flattens the image instead of giving a feeling of wide DOF !

Cheers,
J-P.
