Coffee Break II

This shot isn't exactly what I planned: I wanted to show a close-up of a spoon plunging into my coffee's crema (I won't mention my favorite coffee shop this time, because you're probably getting sick of reading about it in every 2nd posting). But by the time I had my 30D ready, the crema was gone. Anyway, this image might be even better this way, since one sees all those tiny bubbles. Having a plain crema there could have been boring, since there probably wouldn't have been similar details. I also like the colours here! I think the left part of the spoon is reflecting a wall lit by direct sunlight while the spoon's right side reflects a shadow wall.

For post-processing I just *had* to increase the saturation! There's also some local-contrast stuff for getting those bubbles rendered nicely...

Active tags will restrict the thumbnails on the bottom of this popup to images that have all of the currently active tags assigned. A tag that is assigned to the image currently visible is shown with a  blue background . Tags will be grayed out if none of the currently selected images have that tag assigned. Tags with a serif font designate an image gallery, i.e. images that are related to each other because they were e.g. taken during the same trip.
