Coffee Or Tea

This week's contest has the theme of "Coffee Or Tea". Your photo must have, as its main subject, something directly related to coffee or tea, or both.

Good luck!

Contest Rules:

1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread[/QUOTE]

PF Photo Contest - Coffee Or Tea (2/12-2/18)

I had a lot of trouble with this one: pics of my coffee maker/coffee cup are well.. "unsanitary". Going further along that line, I thought of taking a photo of the garbage can with 2+ weeks of used grounds... Close-up pics of beans were nice, but too close to the one I did of a buckeye. So I ended up with this- a drop of coffee suspended from a 27-gauge needle, in homage to my goal of finding more efficient caffeine delivery mechanisms:

What people! You don't drink tea/coffee? Unless your camera is wrecked or something.



Can you tell the diameter of that perfectly rounded drop Andy? Perfect shot btw.

I think all tea is "aged" from the drying process, no?

Yeah, but I have this weird thought that it would taste a bit bitter when dry, not sure and probably not true.

Did you have a tripod with you, Greg?

The green is spectacular in that picture, by the way.

Edited to add: Super-cool shot, Andy.

Those fields are spectacular, Greg! That must have been quite the adventure.

But! Your picture doesn't count, then, does it? Because you have to take the picture yourself. (I feel all nit-picky now. )

My morning cuppa. A 4-demitasse carafe of espresso poured into my oversized Smithsonian Zoo mug.



BTW, if my mug looks coffee-stained and unsanitary, that's the way it has to be. I NEVER use soap or detergent on my coffee mug. Just rinse it out with hot water and dry it for the next use.

Sorry- just saw this. The needle diameter is 0.4mm, so based on the image the drop diameter is about 2.5mm (70 ul).
