A Cup of Coffee and a Book (19)

Some of you might recall a Cup of Coffee and a Book (17), where in the comments Brian (Bushboy) and Jude suggested my positioning in the composition was ‘off’, so I first took the hump(!)  then decided to have another go! After all, it keeps the brain and the creative juices going….

So what’s the verdict??

  1. I like the way the light is caught in #17. Very bold. And sometimes ‘off’ is good. Shakes up the viewers’ perceptions too. But I love the somnalent air of #19.

  2. Glasses on the book for me. The juxtaposition of subjects and lighting makes the scene
    Sorry I gave you a humph. I did mean to be critic positive. Glad you found the mojo to be creative. A lot of times I won’t just like and move on or just move on. You have a creative eye I enjoy. If everyone said that wonderful, lovely would you ever feel challenged? I try to strive to be better and sometimes I do. It’s all about focus ❤

      Oh, you’re absolutely right, Brian….we need to be challenged, and I value comments, it makes me rethink. As you say, focus (and not just the lens!)

  3. Yes I like this pointy composition

  4. Oh yes!!! Beautiful diagonals and perfect placement of objects – well worth another go.

  5. I like this one. Bu I also like seeing what book you’ve chosen.

  6. It works fine for me, but then so did the other one. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. Enigmatic: there’s an unspoken story there with the shadow bars across the table and the book, or a metaphor about how self-isolation is imprisonment…

  8. I’m on the roof with my phone and can’t see it well enough to judge. Will check later 😂💕

  9. Well firstly I apologise for giving you the humph. I try to give a positive critique when commenting otherwise I hold my own. I much prefer this composition, and I’d also like to see this with the glasses on top of the book, which is what Brian mentioned I think. I do like these vignettes of yours and the way you capture the light.

  10. I love this one. My interest in photo shoot, angles and etc grow even bigger as I have more time at home now. Good work.
