I wish I had a real backdrop and a long piece of Plexiglas for this image. Used whatever I found at home: two pieces of white cardboard and a small square of Plexiglas. Used a flashlight with an improvised diffuser (crumpled paper) to light the background, and this diffused then reflected light provided "backlighting" for the glass still life.

in p/p converted from RAW with some "cooling" of the color temp, sharpened, neat image, further adjustment of saturation/contrast/brightness, crop. I wish it was a member challenge - could also use some cloning :)

Dramatic, strong, image, and I like the back-lighting effect..... It has the 'wow' factor as well.....

I love how you can't see the curve of the round flask through the rectangle, because of refraction. Good picture!
