Snow is gone, but it is still cold and very windy outside.

So, when you come home, what do you want ?

Exactly, a nice cup of Nespresso ! what else ?

This is my favorit cup ... it always smiles at me.

Don't forget to have a look in the workshop, in which the cup is partly sticking out.

Thanks for watching

Bonsoir Joop,

Simple mais efficace.
Bonne luminisité sur ce fond sombre et uni.
Est-ce vous sur la tasse ?
Belle composition; que dire d'autre ? (what else ?)

Bonsoir Joop,

I wouldn't say no to hot chocolate, but do like coffee first thing in the morning. Good diffused light with excellent color & sharpness. An unusual cup with the face. Well positioned away from the center. Tfs!

Hi Joop,
A grotesque cup which is very attractive, even more when filled with hot tea or coffee! Very good light and splendid colors. A good attempt of out of frame presentation in WS.
Well done,

Francis Xavier


The note is humoristic, and I like the title announces the atmosphere.
I watched the Ws and I prefer without a framework.
There is a very good use of space and choice for the presentation of the cup and saucer is a good idea.
Good lighting and colors too. Smart work !

Ciao Joop, simple and lovely composition with nice cup of coffee, wonderful colors, perfect focus, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Very nice. It is really good for cold morning, I like this funny face on the cup.

Hoi Joop,

Only not at you, this cup even smiles to me too :)

Good capture with nice management of light and exposure.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and contrasts are well kept in the picture.

PS: Take care Joop, so that you don't break your favorite cup as (seen in the WS) it was just on the brink of falling from the shelf (Commendable PP work) :)


cool studio shot, neat subject with a nice offset composition, good depth of field chosen also,


I could use a cup of this at the Bird Viewing Preserve this morning, the sun was out but it was cold! Awesome still life with great lighting and good details. Very well done, tfs.

Good morning Joops,

Oh! it is superb, a great achievement and excellent rating.
A dash of mischievous smile, good management of light and contrast well done.
Nice idea! lacks only the waving volute of steam above the cup ... lol ...
Compliments for this seductive composition.TFS
Friendly greetings.

This is really nice. I like how you positioned the cup till that face show up :). An example in WS...just having fun :)

Hello Joop :)

Interesting cup, put into a composition in black background
and coffee with foam beautifully, I like such :)
Very showy composition in beautiful, natural colours,
perfect light and sharpness, excellent realization!

Best wishes.

Bonjour Joop,
Dehors le froid demeure, l'hiver perdre...
Tu as trouvé ce qu'il faut dans ces cas là, un bon nespresso, bien chaud, bien frappé, un délice non négligeable, what else???
Un joli cliché haut en couleurs avec un piqué excellent, des couleurs fabuleuses, tout cela, sur fond noir, quoique le WS initial, n'est pas mal du tout...
Il ne manque plus qu'une volute de fumée artistique et le tour est joué:-) :-) :-) :-)
