Could this be another Light on White disaster? I wanted to try to capture steam and had to use ISO 1600 to do it. This is lit from below and behind with a halogen work lamp. The mug and teapot wind up catching a fair amount of reflection off the walls and ceiling. I hope people don't bust me because it looks like more than one light source...

Post processing consists of the usual suspects...

I love the teapot and the shape of the steam! Simple and strong image. 9

7 - Like this. Good concept. Good capture / lighting on the steam. Criticism; difficult, maybe slightly more 'dramatic lighting' (not so centered), not sure. Also possibly a slightly different 'composition' too, may have made this a better shot.
