Few images have more potential than this. Bet it would have ribboned if you would have called it 'Satan Starts his Day' :)
The reflections and the way the soft composition melts into the background is, while almost dreamy, the antithesis of coffee.

However, the uniqueness of the mug and the lipstick - damn I love that lipstick - really make the image.

Also, +250 points if that's a french press in the BG.

I like the intention for making this picture and it's technically very well done, but I somehow find the image too sinister to be a perfect cup of coffee.

Focus is a bit soft.

love the coffee cup...IMO I would like to see a bit more detail at the base of the cup...it seems a bit blown in the highlights

Oh the lip print is a nice touch. I think the scone/pastry is a touch unnecessary. It kind of distracts the eye. A touch tight on the side crop. :)
