Oh my WORD! I only just realized (three years later) that I've actually beaten the Great Irene in a challenge.

Yeah... Ha! I'll sleep well tonight...

Oh wait!

That was three years ago, wasn't it?!? *heavy sigh*

Never mind... *sigh again*

Nice close-up, like the reflection inside the cup. Good luck.

I like the colors of your image best. Nice tones and capture. The border is a bit thick for my tastes, but really great otherwise.

Nice color tone.

good focus, I like the sepia tint; the reflection of the dice takes away from the impression of motion. border is a bit overdone
