Waiting for Coffee

by Lucky Lee

Just a simple snapshot, taken with a K5 and 10-20mm lens of my wife, Jean, waiting for her latte in the Bayards Cove Inn at Dartmouth, Devon.

An interesting and effective use of a wide angle. Good work.
Best wishes,

I really like this shot. The composition, lighting and colours are all very nice. I only hope the latte was as good as the photo!

Nice capture.

Good composition and the way that you have pulled the tones out of the shadows, make this much more than a simple snapshot.
Good photo.
Friendly Regards

Upping the ISO would have given you a lot more latitude but at around a 6th of a second it's pretty impressive.

Thank you all very much.

The latte was tasty, hot and welcome! Actually it was better than last year as it was always being sent back due to it being cold!

Yep, uping the ISO would have helped but it was really a grab-shot with the camera resting on my right knee.
