You have a good idea here, I just think the composition needed to done a little differently. You have several lines running in the picture. The headline is horizontal, the other piece of paper is running up to the right and the phone is angled up to the left. As a result, the eye keeps trying to follow the lines and can't find a place to rest. I think if the cup and phone were moved to the other side, and the papers slid to the right about half a frame, it might help. Then, the phone, paper and headline would form a triangle shape. Just a thought. karmat

Finally, a photo that doesn't have the word fraud in it!

Second photo I have commented along this line today! The other one was too jumbled (too many elements to really focus on), so in that respect, this is better. I think I figured out what would make me really happy with this shot. Circle in red the stocks you wanted to contact your broker about (add interest). It wouldn't matter if it were your stocks, you really can't see that level of detail anyway. Drink your drink down, you're upset, remember? 8 Swash

I think the lighting hurts this photo. It's neither gloomy or bright, but rather just... bland?

There were so many pictures like this and sadly yours is number 98 out of 116 for me. Ive seen too many of them. Your composition is ok but focus is lacking and lighting is uninteresting.

the composition is good and the message clear

What kind of drink? Where are your point of view?

Good idea, good image. Would have cropped it at the top of the Business page. The top page with the blue (one of few colors in the image hence attracting attention) is distracting. What's on the Nokia? Good job!
