    I prefer the 2nd one for the added element of the reflection. I am always looking for added elements inside the frame. Coffee, bubbles, reflection.

    Just a tiny bit before the lower cabinets cut into the frame and the lights are gone. I can't really move the cup from where it is in the frame though so if I add to the top it will need to be an odd crop. If I make the square itself bigger I'll have the white frame of the laundry closet glaring at me on the left.

    I think I like the square crop better but I do agree with you jc about the reflection. That is the only thing that is making me doubt the square choice.

    No problem, I was just curious. I like both crops, but maybe favor the square a bit more.

    Reshoot but back up a bit. You can put your camera in 1:1 format to nail composition. Or simply do the 16:9 format, to me, that would be killer, match the length of bokeh balls on top and bottom. Everyone see's things different. Honestly, they both work but by doing a 16:9 and match length bokeh balls adds a 4th element.

    I've got to get rid of that weird pixelation on the left side. Probably from my inexperienced cloning.

    In the end I couldn't give up the reflection for the square crop. I'll use that one on instagram.

    @SquarePeg I did not see the originals you posted so I can't compare, but your " official " one is killer! I really like everything about it...top bokeh, cup reflection and especially bokeh reflection. Well done!

    My (officially posted) Week 1 photo:

    Look Ahead:

    [​IMG]52projectWeek1lookahead by jwa04, on Flickr

    Look Ahead -- I hope 2018 turns out kind of like this awesome bowl of yogurt. The yogurt is homemade, the honey is local, the bananas are perfectly ripe, and the granola provides the perfect amount of texture. Balance is key in all of life, and I hope I can figure it out this year.


    I actually struggled a bit more this week than I thought I might. The weather being just about as bad as it gets around here I know didn't help, but I also sent my D600 off to Nikon on Friday, and I was stressed about that all week. This was actually my third idea, and only came about because my wife made herself a beautiful breakfast yesterday morning.

    Until further notice, I'm using a Sony a6000 with the 16-50mm kit lens. Crutches removed -- all of my lighting gear, fast prime lenses, and my general comfort level. I think it'll be a good change for a little bit.


    @SquarePeg -- should we just use this thread for the challenge until further notice? Just change the title? Not a crazy amount of participation, so I think that would be fine.

    Miss Riley doesn't LOOK like a baby anymore but she's barely 9 months old and TRUST ME- she still acts like a baby. The only think newer than she is might be the lens- received delivery of this Tokina 100mm macro lens day before yesterday and this is my first test of the lens as a portrait lens. These are the "New Beginnings" in the Peeb household...

    (PS- posted in the @SquarePeg "before/after" challenge too, in you want to see the SOOC version...)

    Great photo for week 1. I’m interested to see your thoughts after not using your dslr for a few weeks.

    I mean, I’m a bit of a whiner, right? The a6000 was one of the best mirrorless cameras on the market a few years ago, haha.
