I ultimately want to create an interesting reflection in the glass...thinking a smoking cigar or the like. What do you think of the basics?

This is the kind of style I like when I shoot. Subject with background blur as part of the composition.

I think I like this one.... =)

Thats a great shot, something I may try and duplicate around the house myself. Thanks for the idea and good luck with the reflection.

I like the picture, but I think a little more glass showing would be a little better, not too much more, just a little to capture some reflection and to show off more of the shape of the glass

Tis not reflection my friend but refraction...kinda like a mirror is reflection and a water drop is refracted. That aside, do a Google on refracted/water drop images to see a myriad of really neat stuff, constrained only by your mind.

Neat idea. Getting a good reflection will be tricky. Interested to see the result.
I'd thought about a doing a reflection in a bottle of booze showing a passed-out inebriate, but by the time I'd drank enough out of the bottle to make the shot realistic, I was the passed-out inebriate.
edit: I believe "reflection" is what he's after chauncey.

Very nice! Colors and depth are spot on!

Love the set up, wonderfully composed with great bokeh. My only slight critcism is that I would have preferred the glass contents to be a little less opaque.

That's a cool shot. Would be best printed large, mounted and framed and hanging on a restaurant or wine bar wall.

Thanks everyone for the comments and advice.

Shot this with a 24mm TS-E II. It has a small MFD and good magnification so I could get nice and close to the glass, and have the width to catch a good number of wine bottles.

LOL. This is great.
