Lighting is nice, although it feels like the lip of the glass, center, should also be lit as well as a little spot on the bottom. Just feels off to me when you have the entire outline except for those two places. Mid center could use a touch more light as well.

Jenko nailed it! I wonder if maybe your dark card is a bit too wide, or your rear light is a little too close? The other thing you can do to add to the effect is shoot on a piece of plexi:

This gives you that "infinite" reflection look at the bottom. I've got a piece of 12x14 smoked grey plexi scavenged out of the dumpster behind the local plastics shop.
