....or thats what it felt like with this one :)
Sometimes the journey is far more rewarding than reaching the destination and this is one of those. It took a long while to get to this, but it was a fun challenge and a lot was learnt along the way.
It took so long to get to this, that I'm not even sure now what I set out to do :) though trying to make the dark glass look like it was black was part of it.
The ironic part, is that after trying loads of different light setups, I ended up using a variation of one I use a lot. Maybe I should stay inside my comfort zone in future, LOL.
See the setup below if you are interested in the details of the lighting.
