A wine glass filled with water, standing in front of three sheets of brightly colored paper. Edit: Though this type of shot has been done numerous times, I wanted to note that my original inspiration was from a photographer named Jacko. I even unknowingly used the same title as his photo which I saw a few months ago and really loved.

This is such a great shot I felt I had to add my comments.
It would make a great pic for anywhere where colour is important from primary school to advance graphic design.
A rare pic that has commercial potential.
Thank you for sharing
