actually this shot was built up out of two pictures. one was with flash and gave the cup the white color and the second shot was without the flash and made with a shutterspeed of 1/15. this was neccessary to get the damp of the hot coffee (when i used the flash the light was to hard). underneath the table was a little spotlight, upward, to give the backlight witch made the damp vissable. because i used a tripod i could place the pictures on top af each other and erased some parts of the first frame..and voilla...there is the steam.

Cracking picture. Great idea of the blended exposure. The composition is good, the contrast between white cup and richly textured coffee beans is perfect, and the framing is well-chosen.

Could be in a magazine. Nice capture.

Great work!
I can almost smell the coffee...

Wow! This is really a fantastic shot, or I should say two shots. Very well thought out and executed. Well done.

Gaaf man! De dampende koffie, ga gelijk bakkie halen. Knap werk Sjoerd, complimenten!


Knappe foto. Goed scherp en vooral de "warmte-walm" vind ik heel knap weergegeven.
HEEL goed !!

Hi Sjoerd,
Dit is een zeer professionele foto
En kan zo in ieder glossy magazine voor koffie
Het aroma komt je te gemoed
Ronduit prachtig die damp boven het kopje
Top klasse

I wouldn't know where to begin... this gives me something to aspire to.
All your efforts are very successful - a wonderful image in every way! Jx

Hi Sjoerd
This is a very nice composition about coffee, I like the fume coming out of the coffee with the beans under it. It create a very inviting composition with excellent lighting and colors. Very well done.

Hi Blok,
My tastebuds are urging me for a cup of coffee and some slaty nuts.

beautiful composition sjoerd :)
love the contrast between the beans and the white cup
the smoke is a very clever touch
awsome details, excellent work

back later with the goodies :)

It just lacks the coffee smell... it's a nice pack shot, sjoerd, well done :)
