I created this image because I wanted to test and learn about a few features of lightwave 9.6 (sss shading, nodes and dielectric materials).
For the background and lightsetup including hdr map I used the fantastic smart IBL Plugin (wich is available also for other 3dapps).
Thanks for viewing.

I think the shadow is perfect. The glasses cast a semi-transparent shadow (glass) toward the back and right. The shadow from the part with the wine is more solid, and the grapes cast an even more solid shadow. Awesome render. I thought it may be a photo, very real.
