    There are a fair few elements missing here like the under shading and specular highlighting that glass is so famous for.
    It was a great effort none the less but there is a LOT more detail to be put into the glass before it is anywhere near realistic. There are a few more tutorials around for this effect, it is extremely popular. Good effort none the less :]
