The refraction looks like it would hold up well
Good JOB!
Don't tweak those settings.

But I do agree with Roman about the light at the base.

What is that from? Mapping, GI light?

Good job overall though!!!!

The problem at the base is just a wrong reflection... I've rendered an animation to see where problems are...
Basically the whole thing is based on simple raytracing with some procedurale enviroment maps that tdrive reflectivity, all colors and so on...
I've rendered it in both Maya and MR for Maya Beta. Reflections in MR are much cleaner... but Maya doesn't make thís bad base Perhpas something for compositing -)
Haven't used GI. Takes too much time to render and I have much more control making it manually...

Hmm, I just thought iīd take some pics. I believe it has very good reflections (the render I mean) since glass surfaces tend to glow a bit when thereīs more concentration of material, I guess itīs because of the properties of glass anyway.

Maybe sub surface light scattering + caustics (inside the glass matter itself...)?

Perhaps, Itīs quite a lot of light physics working there ...

Exactly...but in the end, you can't do a perfect copy of a real world object by synthetic methods. I believe the key word is plausibility.

Btw, I think the rendering is nice.

Hi!
The Image looks cool! I'll try to improve my basement -)
The reflections are not at final stage! The whole surrounding scene needs to be build...
Anyway, I'll have a look how caustics can improve the setup...
