Well, I dunno. I like the peaceful feel of this scene but I get a very strong feeling this will be one of those 1 to 2 comment middle of the road shots. So why am I entering it anyway?
Well as Calvin said to Hobbes; "I must obey the inscrutable exhortations of my soul...."

YES! i wanted this to make my profile page and at the very last second it goes to third on my page! woo hoo! (i'm easily excited)
with the caliber of shots in this challenge i am quite honored with 94th place.....

low key and effective .. you have really captured a soft understated mood jason .. love the way the cup is so highlighted with the focus and the rest of the scene more like a suggestion .. great on your profile page .. :) ..

Beautiful shot. The black border is a little too heavy for the delicate details you've rendered.

Great depth of field obviously. The black border is a little harsh, rather than absolute black it might have been good to eye dropper the darker colour on the rim of the cup. The border would then be a lot more in keeping with the rest of the image

I love this image had you thought about cropping in on the left, the info there isn't doing much for the image and it would take away the blown out whites.

overall nice image. 8
