noting wrong with that habit - worse things to be addicted to! I live the lighting in this photo, I wish I had done it half as well as you

Dramatic lighting, but I might have allowed more room on the bottom and less on top.

I love this! Very rich and striking! I wish it was just a tad lighter on the coffee pot because I can barely see top part of it. ..but the photo is awesome. One of my favorites. 9

The only reason this isn't a ten for me is that I find it just a touch too dark. It would have been nice to get a bit more of the shape and texture of the pot. But other than that I love it. One of my favorites.

This is artfully done, and certainly suits the definition of still life. I'm wishing the surface were solid and not woodgrain. The lighting is good. I feel as if it has a touch of "chopped off" sense in the foreground. I wish the coffee items were pushed back with a bit more negative space in front of them. Still, it DOES meet the challenge which is something I can't say about more than half of them. LOL 7

Good use of lighting.

This meets the challenge its inanimate and arranged. Only just 'composed'. Looks like a nice cup of coffee coming up though. 6

Tremendous sharpness and good composition. I would perhaps have liked a bit more light on the coffee jug. Good shot though.

Gorgeous----perfect lighting---a great still life!!

I like this. The lighting really draws you in.

What I think could have made this better would be a tighter crop and a wider DOF. The sugar pile is the main issue for me really. I would have preferred that to be in focus and as sharp as everything else. Good image though. Good luck!

love the sparcles in the...sugar?

This shot is grainy which detracts from it. Perhaps a little more light would cure the problem and help your pot stand apart from your backround as well.

It's noise.
