After a long hiatus from DPChallenge, I have returned with a shot of one of the most trite subjects! I like it though, I find the symmetry pleasing and I don't think I've seen this particular composition before.

There is a speck of dirt on one of the handles that is killing me not to be able to remove! Other than that, I am pretty happy with this photo.

No fancy editing: sharpen, curves, convert to BW.

This is my favorite coffee related entry, and probably my favorite in the challenge so far. Great composition and lighting. The black and white was a great choice here. Would probably like it in color too!

A strong entry. I could see this with a thick black frame hanging in a independent coffee shop.

Edit: Back to bump you up... my favorite in the challenge.

Simple and to the point. Nicely lit and I even see a hint of steam coming from the brewed coffee.

This is just great. REALLY great. One of my fave. Caffeine yin/yang. Yeah!
