Nice bit of experimenting. Good sf, good exposure, and cool comp.

Now this is a classy image, Suze! Really like it!
I think I would have been inclined to remove the highlight just next to the left-hand edge of the image, on the front of the cup, but otherwise I think this is spot on. Well done!

I'm surprised this hasn't been much more popular Suzi, it's a great image, as Conrad says 'classy'.

Ian I can't recommend this lens highly enough.The f/1.4 is no doubt much better for quality but the f/1.8 does everything I expect it to do and I'm thrilled with it.

your usual style Suzi - elegant and creative!

(next one in the series should explore why the spoon always goes up the nose if you forget to take it out? Smile )

Good result, Suzi.

I tried something similar to this, a while ago, but with a dinner plate and chrome fork. Inspired by a picture by Kertesz that I saw in a book.

I wavered as to whether to upload it or not, but decided in the end that whatever the picture had to say Kertesz had already said it.

Still, it was an interesting exercise in lighting.
