Day 4-- Challenge

Today's challenge was "Hot Drinks" and I struggled with this one only because I couldn't come up with an original idea. I took several pictures of the cup of tea, while most were ok, I did not care for the streak of light that went down the center of the cup and I couldn't figure out where it was actually coming from since the only light coming in was from a window in the back of the room.

Then I thought how cool it would be to try to capture the steam coming from a boiling kettle, so I tried capturing that steam using a slow shutter speed and a tripod. Sadly what the camera captured was not exactly what my eye captured. Oh well live and learn :)

I really like the lighting on your mug photo - it gives a cozy feel to the room. I also had a similar experience to your steam idea when I tried to capture the swirls of colour that appear in the water at the start of a tea brew. At least you got a nice shot of the light reflections on your kettle! All I got was frustration :)

Thanks for your comments @PearlSalmon. With frustration comes perfection (maybe) :)
