Margie, I was reading a thread about finalists, checking out the galleries. I love this photo. Very simple and creative. I smacked myself and said, "why didn't I think of that?!" great job. #1973739

Great shot! Two things near and dear to my heart, coffee and comics (though I get mine on-line - the comics that is - on-line coffee leaves one sleepy! :)

Get Fuzzy is a great strip too! :)

Congrats on making finalist!

Margie Hurwich December 13, 2005

Thanks! You're funny! No way for online coffee! This one was fun to make! And the finalist was a pleasant bonus to the fun shot! #2181936

Suzy Betancourt August 29, 2006

Margie, you have many creative images in your gallery that are so beautiful. I am wondering if you have tried selling them in Istock?

Suzy #3238029

Margie Hurwich August 29, 2006

Hi Suzy. Thanks for that wonderful compliment! I haven't gone to Istock, but I have just recently submitted to Shutterstock (I've made all of $14.70 so far). As well, I have submitted to BigStockPhoto, Alamy and Stockxpert, but am waiting to here from them. They seem like they are taking forever. Does Istock pay out well?

Very nice work on this image, Margie. Love the composition and selective coloring technique. I also walked through your gallery, realizing that I've been here before. Very nice collection of images. You certainly have a good photographic eye!

Toni Hopper December 11, 2006

You know, you see this type of image a lot, but the way you set it up with the red coffee cup puts it above the others out there! Would be fun to have hanging in my kitchen! #3693093

Thanks so much, Toni! If I had these colors in my would definetly be hanging there! #3695222
