A Cup for Lil by coffeenoir A Cup for Lil by coffeenoir
A shot taken for my wife, we both love coffee, and thought this an appropriate homage.

This deviation...it hit me when I was going through the list of pictures in the critiques. I honestly was almost blown out of my chair by it.

The best part, i believe, of this photograph is indeed the emphasis on the heart. It is immediately apparent what you were trying to get by on this, and of course that is exactly what every photographer whats in their photographs.

The only thing I could say that I might have changed is the background, and perhaps the side of the cup with the markings there. If only you could have darkened it so it didn't distract from the main purpose, though that is only a suggestion and a personal opinion. The lights in the background gave it a romantic touch which helps to highlight the main focus even more.

Overall, beautiful and touching at the same time, thank you for sharing it with the people of Deviantart :)

I'm a firm believer in "better late than never." ;) By the way, your image has stayed in my memory where others have faded. You did something special here. Clap

Thank you, it must have been the emotion with which it was taken. I have thought to try to recreate this shot since I have gotten a newer better camera. But never have gotten quite the same result.  I truly appreciate the comment.:heart:

I was sure I had faved this one before, but I guess not. So maybe this NEW fave will help you reach your goal of most popular "coffee" in the dA search.

I love the idea for this shot!! Great concept. The image could be even better if the background was less distracting (twinkly lights?) A soft, natural light might look great for this as well. (Just trying to be constructive.) :)
