Just too out of focus. Your reflection doesn't help. Composition might have worked. Don't care for the border. 3

If it weren't blurry I'd probably give it an 8. As it is, though, 5.

I can appreciate blur for effect, but I can't see how it helps here. I think I would have preferred this subject to be more in focus.

Very blurry and maybe a bit too bright. I actually can't tell it's coffee due to these things but I'll take your word for it.

Composition and angles are quite good, though I'd like to see this more in focus.

It's hard to see what this shot is without the title. A little blury. Good try.
06/09/2003 09:49:17 AM
I like the idea, but why not in focus?

Seems very blurry - Auto focus hates shiny objects.

Everything is out of focus.

It appears to be a creative decision not to have any part of this image in focus, and that's fine, but then I wish the coffee was more interesting to look at as It appears dull and lackluster. Could be more saturated and brighter. I do think this photo has alot of potential.

Nice abstract quality with the blur - well done - 7

Would be improved if the shot were in sharp focus.

It seems like you put this one out of focus for a reason, but I don't think it looks good.

Great concept - seems somewhat out of focus tho...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This image would be interesting if it weren't so very out of focus! I don't know if that was deliberate, but it doesn't work for me personally. I think of coffee and I think of crisp, alert, snapping to attention. This is a little too dreamy for my taste.

06/04/2003 08:50:49 PM
I like where you were going but the focus could be better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2003 04:49:18 PM
This is just way to blurry for me, sorry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2003 02:51:38 PM
Well, the border is nice... but why is the entire image out of focus??? There are instances where soft focus is a good, creative tool... but there definitely needs to be a reason for it. I'm afraid I can't see any good reason for it here. Sorry...

way out of focus

Very poor focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really need to work on the focus here - unless it has been left OOf deliberately, although I see no reason to.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2003 08:25:01 AM
This meets the challenge, but I'm giving it a 1 anyway... The only thing interesting about this photo for me is the border. choosing tho shoot this out of focus doesn't seem to work for me..

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2003 12:17:31 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh WOW...really makes my eyes hurt. I like the reflections you have here, but the picture is much to blurry for my liking.
