I suppose it could be the top of a 2 liter bottle, and the stuff at the bottom of the picture is the label? Label of what? and what's the brown stuff at the very top?

I'm with Brian, the top part looks like the neck of the bottle and it looks like there are water droplets towards the bottom. Taken at 105mm so 105 VR macro as the lens?

I am having another go at it.
Transparent uh .. hmm ?
Okay - it looks like a transparent jar, (those that hold candles from the 'golden years') and you wrap a picture behind it
Another possibility is you are shooting from a distance or through a pin-hole
a new Telephoto lens ? The new 400mm ? :P :?: :idea:

Graham is right: it was shot with the Nikkor micro VR 105mm.
And Brian had a good idea with his own picture - no not the mirror-effect, but :?: :!:
And I can tell you as much as that the sky and the clouds were real-life sky and clouds. There was just "something" between the 105mm and the sunset. Just what was it :?:

It seems to me like an upside-down wine glass. Which reminds me... I really need to go get the dishwater started. :?

Yeah, Luis is right! Congratulation :!:
Although you didn't mention the specific type and vintage of the white-wine used for this experiment :lol:
Oh and btw.the glass was not upside down, otherwise the liquid would have left it. It was easier to turn the photo upside-down...

See not the original, but one from the series:

Interesting, what you can see through a "glass" :idea:
It all depends on the content, though :wink:

The only unanswered question, Thomas, is whether your glass is half empty or half full? :wink: Being an optimist I'd vote for half full. :)

Being a pessimist, I'd say: Only half full :cry:
Interesting thing is, what the liquid can do to your vision :lol:

I generally find the glass to be half-empty too so I'm with Thomas. Luckily I generally have one or two tinnies at hand. Full, of course :wink:
