Very strong shot, should have been higher!

Back for another comment, and looking at this again is making me wonder why I gave you a 5 instead of a 6. This is a very good commercial, and contrast on beans is excellent, despite low light. Contrast overall is very good here.

Nice use of the coffe beans for a background it adds rythym to the photo.

The bubbles in the coffee draw the eye right away. Nice idea to make the back ground coffee beans instead of leaving it black. It is pleasing to the eye without drawing away from the photo. Very intersting shot.

Nicely done. Find the bubbles areound the rim a little too symetrical, it is distracting to me.

Nice contrast. DoF is good. Lighting is interesting.

Not original but well executed. Too symmetrical for my taste though.

I like the concept, but the beans seem under exposed.

I think it's a great picture, but as the consumer I'm not sure what you're advertising. Black coffee? I think you should have added a brand name somewhere in the photo to express specifically what you're advertising.

Think this would have been a bit more dynamic with mug's handle at 45 degrees.

Makes me want a cup. Simple and to the point, add logo and its a done deal.

Not that i like coffee, but it sells it. I like the texture and the consistency of color.

Nice composition , but texture is lacking. Work on your lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2008 07:53:00 PM
great symmetry and clarity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2008 04:36:16 PM
I like the composition and high contrast of this
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Ok so I;m biased, I love all things caffinated. I sure what the product is and the beautiful negative space allows for easy text placement. I might ask for a little less centered comp to add some balance when the text is supplied. Nice work overall though.

Maybe a bit cliche, but very nicely done! I could do with a bit more light on the beans, but that's more of a nitpick.

excellently simple. having the bubbles add an extra dimension and a nice touch to the whole image. i like it. did you shoot it with wide aperture btw?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2008 06:12:36 PM
I think I would like this better without the bubbles...not sure though. I like the dark/light/dark transitions that the beans, mug, and coffee make.

I think it would have been more effective without the bubbles in the coffee. Other than that it's a great shot.

mmmmmm coffee

Do you want a side of cliched ideas with your cup?
02/06/2008 10:12:51 AM
