Thanks to everyone for your comments! I really feel like I can take a few things from the input and apply them to future shots. I'm thrilled to have so many talented photographers (and viewers, alike!) take the time to look at my work. I was a bit surprised, however, that some people didn't get how the shot fit into the theme. (?) Herbal remedies, particularly teas, are a major part of alternative medicine. Oh well. :)

I like this concept, However, I don't care for the invisible bottom of the tea pot. I would have loved to see it sitting on something than the cup floating.

Nice one here...

Nice capture - Love the teal look of the utensils. Nice idea. If anything I think the tea cup could have been placed just a little closer to the steam for a more realistic feel. Still nice though.

Nice execution and lighting... However didn't quite relate to the challenge theme.
