I were quite surprised this one didnt reach ribbon or even top5. Voted 7 on this and most of the winning shots went below 5 or even 4 from me.

the softness on the right and left seems a bit strange...

Cool use of DOF, I reckon this was shot using a tilt and shift lens.
Great shot.

ONE OF MY FAVORITES...color and contrast is awsome...the blending blur on the side is such a nice accent...10 for me!!!

I miss some focus in this one

Nice and simple and effective. Did you use the Lensbaby, I wonder. 8

Like the simplicity of the cup with the rich look of the chocolate, but the blur is a little heavy for my liking. Too tight? maybe not quite centered right? I'm not sure, but it just doesn't QUITE work for me.

try a wider depth of field next time (5)

I think the zoom blur detracts from the image.

not sure about the OOF

Interesting take to the shot. I like the shallow DOF. The background light is not even but other than that looks good. Oh and what type of tea is that? It looks like coffee to me.

Great lighting! Personally, I don't care for the blur effect, but I think it is well done.

I like how the focus is centered and it is blurry around the outside of the image. How did you do that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2006 05:59:37 AM
lighting and composition are good, but might have been better with less blur and a slight clockwise rotation

Magic photo great focus point. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 11:20:22 PM
Nice and simple composition, though I think a deeper DOF to bring the sides into focus would be beneficial. (Looks like it may have been some kind of effects lens filter too.)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 11:08:03 PM
Very nice. Would like to know how you achieved the fuzzy look on each side.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 08:54:44 PM
I haven't gone through them all but, thus far, my guess is that this will win....damnit. :) Tilt-shift? Lensbaby?
Anyway, wonderful shot!

The DOF is a little much .. the chocolate feels that it should be fully in focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 03:56:18 PM
Yeah, that looks really good right now. Nice color combo too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 03:45:02 PM
Very nice, looks comforting. Would like to see a bigger DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 03:42:35 PM
oh yes! THIS IS COMFORT!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 03:34:38 PM
Like this a lot. Simple, soft and concise statement. No clutter. Nice composition. 10

love the focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 02:19:13 PM
the blur on the left of the cup and right of the chocoloate shouldn't be there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 09:45:24 AM
i didnt think blur was allowed in basic
