      I love this photo. Wonderful composition! Between the tea and the newspaper (the sepia is quite stunning), you have captured the essence of something indeed very pleasant and comforting (maybe it is the time of day, or that brief moment of calm as we sit and drink our tea)...

      Very nice, I think the fact that you ironed the newspaper is amazing.

      good shot . I like the color and the calming aspect. I can't believe you ironed it

      Beautifully simple. I like the colors on the paper. Why did you have to iron the paper?

      LOL... I have the same question as arimail... - Was the paper folded for delivery or something?

      Very pleasing visually - I like the tones and the perspective, especially with reference to the cup of tea. the framing of the paper is perfect... I'd never have thought it was tea unless you said so - looks like black coffee to me... but then I am not a tea drinker! ;^)

      hehe and what page on the Times to open too ?! :)
      I usually start from the sports section and end on the commic strips ;-)
      I like the colours here and the ironing technique is intriguing.
      Is it why you have very slight undulations on the paper ?
      Great shot!

      Nice composition. The soft shadow from the cup is great touch. Very well done, I don't really have any suggestions! Great job!

      @ wildlocks, i know! i couldnt get a hindu in time for the shot :D
      @daku, it is sunday! somehow that got into the pic
      @ magicicada, thanks! i think the time of the day really did work for this shot.
      @piggley and arimail, it was all folded and creased. throwing too many shadows :-(
      @smiling gypsy, i really did! looks like i didn't do a thorough job though :-p
      @bernadette, black tea works for me :-)
      @ ashwin, i was looking for a page with least ads :D. i generally make sure not to miss the comics. i was actually trying to flatten it out by ironing.
      @ melody, thats great! thanks a lot!!

      Alosh, this is wonderful--the ironing and careful post-processing paid off, and the composition and tones are beautiful. This is absolutely one of my favorites this week, and so I'm voting it "BestOfWeek" (from Active Assignment Weekly group).
