This shot took a look of thinking to come up with a way to get the angle of the bottle to look correct and to get the wine to come some what centered to the glass. Then several hours setting it up. I broke the end of the bottle off and attached a plastic bottle over the broken end. Ran a black tub through the back to the front of the opening. This gave me the straight line splitting the inside of bottle, added some black cloth to fill in where the wine should be. Here comes the good part since I don't drink. I would fill my mouth up with wine and blow it up through the tub so it would pour out. After a half dozen tries I was feeling pretty good. I would have a nice little drink each time. Once the set up was ready along with the lighting it only took a dozen shoots to get it.

Amazing, I guess the voters preferred a white BG and red wine ;) Well done and good luck in the next round!

I saw this coming from the moment I saw the challenge topic... but I could NEVER do it this well.



(the background is a bit mottled on my monitor for Advanced Editing, but my monitor is not calibrated)
