Excellent entry Stephen. I like this composition with the watch and the great historical notes that goes together. the colors and sharpness are excellent. Very well done.
I still need to wait 3 hours before I'm allowed to send mine. I'll do so tomorrow morning.
Sorry my back of goodies is empty.

Not only a great shot, a great macro shot and an untampered with shot (PP? What PP?) but we get an appropriate history lesson as well! Good thinking.
I like it very much and I hope that your efforts are rewarded.
You are the first entry as far as I am aware but I have yet to cruise the gallery.
Stand by for a vote or two in your favour ;)

Brown,brown,brown! The light is absolutely beautiful! Very nice composition and great notes.Quebec,where I live, was founded in 1608 and Canada in 1534.I guess that the coffee arrived in North America in the sixteen hundreds with the arrival of the French and English people coming from Europe!

The story of coffee in prime!
What i like about your presentation is... The watch fit very well the coffee beans. With her simple tissu in natural fimer and basic metallic body, it's work very well! Good work!

I alway find time for a cup and if not with someone then alone. My regular dosage is 4 cups per day but at days I over do it :)
Great shot with a nice blend of similar colours. Intersting time-line

Beautiful use of light. And I know it has been said before, but the sharpness is just incredible. I don't know how you can achieve that with the TL format limit...

Nice composition with the watch on coffee. Very good sharpness and framing. Well Done !

Technically this image gets a 10/10! I love it. Colour and mood plays a vital role here and you accentuated it very good. However, on all the advertisements of watches, I see the time set to 10 past 10, but not in yours - have you ever noticed it in adverts?

Hi Stephen - my daugther freaked out on your entry. I don't know how I missed it. The golden light on the beans is devine - your choice of watch is awesome (not my word) and the choice of border is just perfect. A good competitor :-))

Interesting note and composition. I've always been a fan of the colour brown, so I obviously like the photo. I like the soft change of colour on the surface. adds onto the coffee appeal. What more too say? Just looks good, and the note is really interesting, I've never thought of coffee in that depth. Lovely work. :)

Remarquable travail Stephen! Tout y est parfait : compo, détails, netteté, jeux d'ombre et de lumière, reflets, chaleur des tons présents, le cadre en harmonie! Et puis la note explicative, extra!
PS : que représente le symbole dans le coin inférieur gauche?
