    ....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.

      Great shot!

      What is the surface the object is sitting on? Acrylic? Where did you buy it?

      Thanks!

      No, its a sheet of glass from a cheap picture frame, with the underside painted black to create a black mirror.
