Fantastic! If you don't mind some critique, the only suggestions I would make is to render your passes separately and add a layer of RGB noise to the glass before your final composite. That dark base is relatively noise-free (except for the minor artifacts from the final jpg save). All of the other darker areas in the image have a high degree of chromatic noise from the low light, or high ISO. Also, the perspective of the glass seems slightly off, as if it's tilted back just a little too much.
In any case, this is a fantastic composite, and the lighting, contrast and refraction is incredible. I hope you don't mind the critique.
Thanks for the advice! I love critique, it really helps This was really just a quick test to see if it looks realistic, this is just a screenshot out of Cinema 4d, no Photoshop work at all. I noticed the angle of the glass afterwards, but I couldnt be bothered going back to change it as the render took a while. Please give me critique whenever possible, I love knowing that other people actually enjoy my work

I'll be happy to offer whatever critique I can. I haven't played with 3D work since the MS-DOS days of 3D Studio 4, back in about 1994, or so. I'd love to jump back into it, but my brain isn't quite as flexible as it used to be.
