Excellent still life, looks like my Sunday morning, coffee, newspaper, reading glasses. Great shadows.

Love the way the light is cast diagonally across this. Great contrasts.

Ordinary content made beautiful by good composition. Did you arrange them like that or was it a spontaneous shot? Even if it was the former there is no stiffness in the arrangement as a result!

As an aside, it would be great if you could provide previous and next links to your photos. In the present arrangement it is difficult to easily browse throuh your older photos.

I really like the diagonal light drawing your eye across the shot. Also, nice contrast of the black mug highlighted on the right there. Beautiful shot, again.

Great shot micki, this is a lovely still life. I simply love the composition and choice of b&w. I'd have been tempted to, er, underexpose slightly, but then it may just be the screen on my laptop which is notoriously bright.

I love the fact that you say portraits are the thing you find easiest! For me they are the thing I find constantly perplexing, whereas I am more comfortable with still life. I think the omens were there from a young age; in art at school I could only draw people as "stick people". Mind you, my attempt at van gogh's sunflowers resulted in "stick flowers" so perhaps this wasn't really an omen after all... (LwS)

So what did you buy? Nicely composed but not exactly clear what the focus is especially at thissize of image ie is it real estate or holidays or just a coffee break etc. Nice to know what you intended so we can tell you if it did it for us.

Great shot! Nice composition. Could be a frame in a movie.
You also managed to play with the sunlight which makes this picture even more interesting. Nice work !

Nice shot, looks like something out of an oldtime detective story.

great lighting, the angle the light cuts through is the strongest feature of this image. I also the like the curviture of the mug and glasses vs the diagonal and lines in the paper.
