Glass Cross

So, I put something in the glass cross:



I don't think I like it though.

Mmm, interesting idea, but I think I agree.  What about something else, like "Hope," "Salvation," "Faith," or "Love?"

Hi RudySchneider,

That would probably be a better sort of message. I can easily change the message just by editing the texture for the note's material.  Mostly, I just think the note in the bottle is a distraction and that it detracts from the depth and "glassiness" of the image. Your comments reminded me of something I did a while back for a webpage:



Again, I'm not sure what keeps these crosses from falling over or what the surface beneath is supposed to be--not a well developed design. Also, there is no refraction since I did this in version 0.95 before Steve gave us the ray tracer.

Looks nice, definitely like the version without the message, since as you said it detracts a bit from the glass itself. Perhaps, you can emboss a message instead on the metal holder or give it a little placard attachment.

It does distract from the original image. I agree.  If you are still inclined to put something in the bottle, maybe a string of 'prayer beads?' hanging inside, would be less intrusive to the main image.... or... maybe i should just 'leave well alone'....lol
...sorry Ron.....
