Coffee looks a little weak. Should have brewed a stronger pot (unless this is your cup in the evening, then it's ok).
Just kidding, like the shot, simple yet good use of negative space.

Woo Hoo! - My first. Chalk one up for the old E-10.

Simplicity. PS Auto-level turned background white & I left it that way. A little saturation, cropping & USM was all it needed.

And to think I almost used my glowing toilet shot.

Thanks all!

Almost perfect -- too bad about the glare on the rim of the cup. Great shot though.

Very nice. I like the way the light shines through the stream of coffee (or tea).
One of my favorites of the challenge.

Beautiful. I wish my morning coffee looked like this - that'd wake me up. Or at least please me more. The framing and saturation and composition is all wonderful. I'm not sure about the white and black border, but top marks from me on this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2004 12:04:41 AM
What a great shot! You did a fantastic job with composition, color, clarity -- okay, now it sounds like I'm rating a diamond, but I really like everything about this photo. Great job!

My ribbon pick. Nothing more to say than brilliant. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

this shot leaves me thinking more about what is not shown than-- the cuo, the piture-- what is in the frame; the crop on the right side is pretty close, leaving just a bit more space between the edge of the cup's rim and the border would have avoided confusion as to whether part of the rim was cut out
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2004 10:15:42 AM
Excellent clean background emphasizes the subtle subjects. I really like the cropping which makes the subject obvious, yet leaves something for the imagination. I really enjoyed this image!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2004 07:17:00 AM
As I go through all the pics, this one is good in both artistic and meaning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2004 12:46:22 AM
my only complaint is the black/white border should have been all black. the white gets lost in the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2004 10:29:00 PM
What a wonderful flow, great colors and compostion. Excellent. 10

this is my favourite coffee shot.. original perspective and easily makes my 10 list.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2004 05:17:26 PM
great capture. the lighting on the coffee is perfect!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2004 04:02:54 PM
Clean shot, though not one of my habits a suggestive picture. Some light steam from the liquid might have made it more real, crispness makes it look cold and clinical.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2004 12:19:25 PM
Great picture - The liquid looks like glass - awesome contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice action freeze.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2004 03:36:43 PM
Well - there were an awful lot of coffee entries - but yours is by far the best of the bunch, the cream of the crop (no I guess it's black.) I have one minor complaint - there is so little cup on the bottom edge that the white line between the cup and the black border really detracts. It almost looks like some of the cup is missing. Like I said, a minor gig - you image should still be in the top 3. Congratulations.

I like the composition and crop. Bravo!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2004 02:07:55 PM
coffee looks cold -- steam might've helped. Like it, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a great interpretation of this week's assignment. The lighting is great, and I really like the crop/composition. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2004 12:07:06 PM
I think this photo could be improved 100 percent if you caught the lip of the pitcher pouring out the coffee. Otherwise, brilliant photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2004 08:08:13 AM
Beautiful shot. Nice clear background, great sharpness and framing. Great contrast! Top 20.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2004 07:58:45 AM
Very clean and simple presentation is good. The purple and red hues in the otherwise white background don't work well. Was this heavily processed? Hot spot on the front of the cup is slightly distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2004 07:05:28 AM
Very nice! This is the first photo I've seen in the challenge that has really stood out as being good. I'm giving you a 9 now, but it may move up to a 10 later.

05/19/2004 06:24:52 AM
Very good photo!! The elements are all in focus and the pictured habit is a very common one! Well done!

Decent composition. I wish there was more substance to it, but I like the contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great composition and color and nice change of perspective for common Habit. Don't care much for the border, but good overall photo.
