Very high marks for brown, but I like all the other things as well - the highlights, the reflections - they give a mysterious context, and really as a caffeine addict, the essence of coffee is the unbeatable if illusory lightness of being? Steam rising. (I have problems with the border, not just the mentioned off centredness, but I would consider white alone without the inner and outer brown/black OR maybe an even wider white border with whatever. Not something I would let influence my vote).

Nice sharp picture, I would have tried to avoid the reflection in cup (not the bright spot). It looks like an image of the photographer and draws the attention. The background and damping coffee are superb though

i love this, the reflection in the mug is very cool looking, liek the head of a manikin or something, and i love the choice for a border, it's definetly a border shot, in fact, if i saw this pictured framed in a store, i'd but it for my wall :) definetly a 10

A nice capture of the essence of brown. All the browns stand apart and none blend together - I like it!

Good setup and composition. Like the steam, but not the hard light reflections.

Nice composition, but the light in the mug caused by the flash detracts from the subtle shades. Nice though!

More steam would have made this a stronger image - but still nicely composed.

The way I heard it: "Strong as love, black as sin and hot as hell". Nicely done!

Would've liked it more if the inner border was centered.

Your reflections are a little distracting but the warm tones go very well with the subject. Nice composition. 7
