I expect low 5 in this... hopefully over my average of 5.2
It is nice and clean though, and the natural vignettes supports it strongly I think. So maybe up to 5.5? That'd be nice!

I'd love to have been able to clone out some stains on the cup (rim on the left, and some on the plate too). Wish it was advanced for that.

Editing. Adjusted auto settings from lightroom. Small touch of topaz adjust. Small touch of topaz detail (for colour levels). Denoise for smoothness (though that sorta nicked the vignettes a bit). Some more touches with lightroom.

Didn't get much love, did it? I still like it, though :-)

A very simple composition, really highlights the cup.

Looks good. I can't decide if the vignetting in the upper left corner is a distraction or if it adds interest!

Not sure how you got all that vignetting on this basic challenge, as it's illegal.
