We picked up some oriental dishes that were very unique. Took a couple shots in moonlight and later took another batch indoors so I could get a nice steam plume. It was a challenge getting the steam to cooperate, but I think I finally got a good shot, after well maybe 50 shots. Hope it does well, it is my second entry.

Edits include RAW conversion, rotation, crop, heal of dust specs, some cloning around the edges, some selective color on red tones mainly, USM.

Lovely steam and wonderful sense of peace to this. That little bit of light showing me the rim on the left is perfect.

I love the texture and earthyness of this, the steam vapors comming from the cup make this shot come alive for me.

Well done, I get the sense you used a layer mask to lighten up the sugar cubes. However, the highlights are blown on the side of the cubes, yet there is little light on the side of the mug. I would love to know what you did. 6
