The counselor said I should start talking about my wishes too!

    Congratulations!! Now just what do you plan to say to Miss Plant???? LOL

    Hi friends,
thank you very much for your votings and very kind comments.
These callenges are so much fun! And because of your comments and especially because of all the great inspiration your entries give to me I think I learned more about getting nice photos in the last few month than I learned in the last years doing it all on my own...

Did you see the reflection of the spoon in the cup? I loved it!

Now what's about cappuccino, my lavender and me... hmm...
After a while you feel a bit strange doing this. ... And all she talks about is soil, mineral fertiliser, water hardness, raw-fired pots and shades of green!
I'm afraid I must admit that I've got no Green Thumb!

    Wonderful image! Wonderfully shot and the crop for comp is very good. Excellent still life quality to the image. Well done!

    I've tried it, believe me, they don't like my voice! I like the photo, though, simplicity itself.

Feb 10, 2008
    Nice shot, exposure, lighting and simple, in my tt.

Feb 10, 2008
    Like the colour study very much. A lovely still life that begs us imagining how it will come to life.

    May also need to stop 'watering' them at night and use the toilet. It did wonders for my plants.

    A nice setting for a chat with your plant. Love the composition, the blue checkers compliment the background nicely, and the deceased plant still has a pleasant airy feeling to it..

Well done. TT.

    LOL. Doesn't look like it could hurt.
I like the simplicity of this shot and yet, at the same time, there are plenty of interesting details to occupy the eye. The whipped cream on the coffee is a nice touch.

    Not sure talking to them will help but this image will never die. TT

Feb 8, 2008
    overall just a great shot...like it a lot

Feb 7, 2008
    LOL I am not sure you can talk enough to help that poor plant! Excellent capture and I love the blues. In my TT! This made me smile!

Feb 7, 2008
    I love this shot! It's so creative and really well done.

    I'm not sure I get the theme, and I've tried to avoid voting for photos I don't think fit the theme, but I just decided to assume I'm dense since I like this picture. Love the colour, love the composition. Gets my 3rd place vote.
