Interesting photo, Mike, but in spite of your detailed description I still can't quite figure out what I'm looking at.Captured using a Tamron 90mm macro lens and CamRanger Mini using the legacy method of inputting information (basically the same as the Nikon method). 56 images, step size "small," focus-stacked in Helicon Focus using default settings.
A transparent wine bottle with spiral embossing containing sparkling white wine is laying on its side at a 45-degree angle to the camera with the top closest to the camera. Translucent white plexiglass is behind the bottle and a medium continuous-light lamp is behind the plexiglass shining toward the bottle and camera. That lighting outlines the transparent glass in dark tones, though admittedly a close-up image that doesn't include the top or bottom edge of the bottle makes it difficult to determine which part is the outlining.

That makes two of us. I guess that means the abstract is successful at least on that level.I still can't quite figure out what I'm looking at.
I also tried a 3d animation of this and it worked perfectly. I cannot upload it here but I can try to link it tomorrow.That tabletop is excellent for testing your skills at ensuring that the entire scene is sharply in focus and you passed the test in flying colors.
