Wow- the elusive yellow ribbon! this is appropriate because I am completely obsessed with espresso and it (a gift for my wife) has been making perfect espresso for me (and capuccinos for her) on a daily basis. For this shot I was frothing water for added steam. Originally I didn't have that in mind but having the frother there doing nothing seemed silly. I've had luck when adding steam to images.

I love this shot. From this perspective, the machine looks so ominous. Love the lines, details, and smoothness. It's awesome. Congrats on the yellow and having enough decimals for third place lol.

Well done, Tate. This image would certainly move a lot of product if done by their advertising agency!

See you in WPL5?

The machine has a sorta master power over the cup with the way you shot the angle; It towers over it if you see my point. Anyway, I didn't vote on this but I love it.The title and picture go smashing. Points to you!

Nice point of view and well framed. You could have entered this in Rule of Thirds! :) Is this a duotone? - very nice. Started at 8, bumping to a 9.

Nice, sharp product shot. Good use of DOF. I might have cropped a little more on the right, to lose the tube heading out of the frame, but otherwise nice shot.

OK, this is a nice image. tonemapping works well here. I reckon this could score quite high. 7

I had no idea espresso machines could be so phallic.
