What a eye catcher. The clear reflective bubbles of chocolat milk brings me to a place where desire and comfort is one. The white lines blending into the background removes as much excess as possible away from the focal point. My first 10.

A black background with a steam coming out of the cup would have been a really "hot" cocoA!

I really like the lighting and use of texture. I know its not that easy to avoid but the shadow from the mug does detract a little from the image.

Very well done! The cup looks fantastic - I would have liked to see the top part looking a touch more creative than it is - ie some chocolate swirls, some cream - etc. Otherwise great shot!

I like the lighting here alot. I would have added a bit of whipped topping or some other interest to the chocolate....maybe a peppermint stick. Still, I think it's well done.

I like how the left edge of the cup disappears. I really like the bubbles!

simple and nice, i wish the shadow wasn't as obvious, giving the impression of just the drink in a circle

Very good technique! I like the way the whites run together, making the cocoa float in an abstract space.

I like the high-key treatment of this image. The lighting is good for this effect and the shadows on the right are not too harsh and give form to the mug. Well done (8)

Perhaps a different color cup?
