Cup of tea anyone?

Winter is almost here and the tea is back to warm up our days and evenings.

I love a god cup of tea or coffee (even better) while sitting next to a big window watching the winter outside.  That’s why I like this picture. It was taken exactly 2 years ago in a tea/coffee house in Detroit while outside was raining.

The picture was a spur of the moment thing with no planning (that’s why the stain is there 😦 ) but I still like it.  I would prefer however, to know what could be done to improve this image if I was to take it again – this time putting some thought into it before (and having a better understanding of light and photography)

Behind Bars

Behind Bars was taken at the local zoo. The animals there are very well taken care of, but this is still one of the saddest pictures I ever took. What do you think?

The picture was taken with a Canon EOS 350D Digital camera.

Aperture: f/5.6
Focal Length: 300 mm
ISO Speed: 400

Here it is. This photo “Of the balcony” was taken in an old area that is now part of Jerusalem and is called Ein Carem.
