I thought this would at least be in the top 10. Great image none the less.

One of my top 3 picks. Can't understand how it finished behind a lot of the images it did.

This feels so zen, I really like it. Only thing I would change is to put the tea cup on an upper or lower third, this is just a little too close to centered. Oh and getting rid of the shadow would be good too, but it's not a major distraction,

Tea makes the world go round :) Good use of tea as a background. The shadow cast from the light to the top could do with attention though.

I like the way you used coffee or coffee like material as your background and give good contrast to the image. Initially gave a 7. But I changed my mind. + 1
8/10

wish the shadow in the tea wasent so dark, maybe a higher light would have helped get rid of that, but i do like the backdrop of tea.

Very simple and, in the spirit of the orient, very ordered. The milk and bubbles is a bit distracting, but it also creates a nice color tone to contrast to the leaves. The orange cup stripe is fantastic.

Such a great shot, Its in my top 5.
