There's something a bit unsettling about this Jonathan - I don't think the composition is quite there and so the white space is throttling it a bit. Maybe if we were allowed more detail to the cup, like the handle was slightly closer to us (giving more interest to the middle).

Certainly got plenty of potential, and is a great skill to acquire - effective food/drink photography.

i rated your first one i think, it was a lot better. i see you've tryed to experiment with the composition, good idea, but not really sure it works in this. still, keep up the good work...

Thankyou for the feedback. I can see what you mean about the composition. It does not strictly confirm to the standard 'rules'. My only defence is that if this image were used in, say, a magazine then the white space could be used for editorial content, therefore balancing the image. I am experimenting with the 'images that sell' concept after reading some of the fine articles on this site.

It does scream out for "Your caption goes here", but since that was the intention, it's worked! Still, as individual photos, I preferred the earlier one. Still, Click.
