FYI, I *DID* understand complementary colors. The cup is purple, the nog is yellow -- so it fits. I chose the background of blue because it looks so good with yellow, but that seemed to distract folks from the complementary colors within. Oh well... Thanks for all the votes and I definitely learned something from this challenge!

From the description:
...For those of you who need a refresher, your main sets of complementary colors are red/green, blue/orange, yellow/purple.
Sorry, but you didn't get the colors right.

The yellow border is a bit much. That yellow is so bright it's making my eyes water.

Colors and subject are fun; I might have moved the cup off to the side of the composition a bit, or tilted the whole thing just to add a bit more interest to the composition.

Blue and yellow are not complementary colors...

I think you you need a higher DOF here. The focus makes the handle the main subject, which is probably not your intention. Very esthetic though.

I don't care for the border much, the yellow line destracts my attention from the photo. which is a good one.
