Like I don't have enough on the go at the moment and don't neglect my family enough, I accepted a challenge yesterday to recreate a photograph a friend and I both liked. Cue a totally unnecessary late night.

Table texture needs work and the DOF is a bit off but overall I was quite happy with it.

C&c welcome.

Actually, I'm happy with the water. In the reference photo you could just tell that there was water in the jug.
It's the etched crystal that could do with a little more effort I think.

Thanks. The subject matter is quite close to my heart-I even had some real world reference on hand for colour checking.

Jura single malt takes its name from a beautiful island off the west coast of Scotland.

Here's a small update, more dof and a few tweaks:

Tallisker is nice, too, but I prefer LaPhroaig.

Very nicely done model, by the way. I visited Scotland for Hogmanay the last two years, and it brings back memories...

Thanks. Rudy, where do you go at Hogmanay?

This last trip, we flew in to Glasgow, spent two nights at a lighthouse near Stranraer, two nights in Edinburgh (at Channings, nice), three nights at Culloden House, outside Inverness, for Hogmanay, then overnight ferry to Shetland Islands. Shoulda waited 'til Spring for that. Shortened our planned four days in Shetlands to two, drove back down to Stranraer, where we grabbed a ferry over to Ireland. Stayed two nights at Bushmill's Inn. Long answer, but a fun trip.

One thing that blew us away on this trip was that, despite all of the preparation and fanfare, the fireworks and fire-related festivities in Edinburgh had to be canceled due to weather. A real shame for a whole lot of folks!

It looks amazing. You'll go crazy for some of the new materials in 9.2....

That was a shame but we were pretty sure it would happen. The weather was wild.

ghostlight, I tried this scene using dielectrics in 9.2 to try and get a nice caustic effect. The glass was easy to get right but the caustics were totally inappropriate for the light levels. Even with the lights turned way down it was like there was a flame thrower burning the desk.

Looked great but totally wrong. I can experiment more easily now that I have Fprime 3.0 though. mwua ha ha.....a ha ha
