Hi Alex... love the picture - not sure if i have the right to comment as i am a noobie but
... i would just like to comment about the shadow under the glasses... the shadow under the lighter/box is quite dark, as is the shadow under the saucer but there is hardly any shadow under the glasses - they seem to be floating a bit!
Also the liquid in the cup is rather bland and non-distinct. I really hate to comment because i couldnt produce that picture but you did ask for blunt comments
Hi to all... Love the website/free tutorials and this forum.
