These are glass droppers, that I use to give plant's extracts. They were lined up horizontally on the table and I fired a flash to the white BG with a tinted gel to give the color cast.

PP was kept to a minimum to prevent DQ!

Exposure
Blacks
Contrast
Clarity (not sure this is how it is named in English, I have a French LR)
Vibrance
Curves for the dark tones
Overall desaturation

Import in PS CS4:
Dust correction
Crop
Rotate
Sharpen
Border using the "Size of workspace" function
Save for web
Sharpen once more

Pretty neat, I like this. Looks to be made of glass but other than a lot of glass beakers next to each other I don't know what this is.
