fairy light whisky

Photopuddle blogged this image and she was accurate in her view that I was trying to imitate a bar or club. I though it would be good to show her the set up shot which probably spoils the illusion of the shot, but also shows the trouble i went to fake a nightclub interior in my back room.
The trick with this shot was using my 105mm macro lens at f4 to create a smallish dof and bokeh the background. 1 sec exposure in a darkened room for the fairy lights and snooted strobe camera right illuminating the whisky glass which is sitting on sheet of glass. it took me an hour or so to figure it out.
