Great shot. I love the grain. Adds a lovely "film" quality to it. Well done on your score in the challenge too!

This is a nicely presented still life and very cleanly executed. Makes me feel like drinking a cup, even though I gave up coffee. ;-)

Top 3 favorite for me, I'm really surprised it's at 11. I'm a sucker for B&W though. I think that is a french press in the back? I would have filled it full of coffee, the condensation looks a little out of place. Great shapes and arrangement.

I had this one in my top 3. Surprised this didn't make at least the top 10.

I love this one! Looks like it ought to be hanging in one of those huge matted frames in Starbucks :)

Great layout on this one. B&W traetment works very well as well as the light grain. Good shot. Bumping up.

I really like this one. Simple, but it speaks volumes to me. And not just becasue I'm a coffee junky. ;-) Great job.

Having a cup right now as I vote. Black and white was a very good choice for this image. You did just enough of everything.

Wow! well done. You avoid over exposure on the whites but retained detail. The comp is excellent and I love all things caffienated. Slight oveverexposure on the coffe pot (left side) but only a minor distraction.9

simple and elegant

This meets the challenge - inanimate and arranged. It's a fair shot, but essentially of a them and/or thing, rather than of a composition. 5

Great lines and lighting. Maybe a smidge too much noise, but still very nice.

Nice composition. The tonal range is perfect. My only nitpick is that rouge bean on the left border. :)

I think that picture in color would have been better, nice though!
