    Very nice composition and selective focus. What can be more ordinary and simple than a nice cup of tea?
Good luck with the caffeine withdrawal. In my case it was lots of headaches for a short while.

    LOL! Good to see I'm not the only one who tortures himself with healthy stuff! ;-)
Very good idea for the theme, great composition, nice colors and beautiful lighting.
I would have liked to also see a little bit more sharpness on the upper part of the cord - but it is better to have the label in focus though. Very well done!

    A nice pic, great angle that makes a very nice composition, along with nice DOF... as a minor correction, I would clone off that little yellowish reflection on the bottom, as it keeps distracting my eye from the label. But it's a minor one, and your pic is TT for me, well done!!

    There is something about this photo that keeps me from putting it into my TT, but I can't quite put my finger on it. It's really well taken, on theme, and the colours are interesting. Perhaps it is the predominance of black at the top of the photo that makes it seem unbalanced.

    I like this a lot. The composition is simple but effective, DOF is spot on and the highlight on the bench is picked up by the cup. A clear favourite that is right on theme.

    I should like this more than I do but can't explain why. Mabe I want to see more of the cup - not sure - Sorry. Maybe your preference for the evil coffee is being reflected by the tea god:-)

    The simplicity of this image is its strength and the beautiful exposure, colours, and composition only enhance its score in my rankings. I'm really impressed too that you managed to so tightly and effectively control the depth of field to limit the focus to the tag and the image area just adjacent to it. By blurring the edges, you have really added quality to this image.
