A Starbucks chocolate on my antique pine desk. Single desk lamp and shaded overhead light, custom white balanced.

Heavily increased the contrast and reduced brightess.

A little dust editing was done, and cleaned up some bright points where the join was damanged. I left a fair amount of imperfections to maintain a reasonable amount of integrity.

Good honest intro to your image. Nice balance of color and light. Certainly would make a very good add for the product/company.

I like the lighting and the choice of a wooden table, rather than a plain white or black background.The highlights seem a little blown out.

Beautiful props, beautifully lit, beautifully staged and cropped, but the pic says 'Starbucks' and the title is 'Starbucks'. What about something like 'The shape of drinks to come' or something more stimulating?

For some reason, I feel warm and fuzzy.

Looks more like an ad then a "shape". :) Nice shot but doesn't fit the challenge well. If this were an "Advertisment" challenge you'd get an 8 (9 if it wasn't tilted 3 degrees to the left).

while obvious, shape not really most important aspect

Nicely lit, good focus, simple background. Nothing wrong per se, but nothing outstanding either. Perhaps more context or meaning would help me more. What are we supposed to think about this shape? Where is this? I wish I could be more helpful.

Neat coin. You did the light/flash very well couldn't of been easy with the shine of the metal. Nice work, I like this.
