Number 2 is intriguing. I would kill the dead space on the left though.

I'm not sure either; however the second image is interesting with the shadow-like line. I would probably do a tighter crop so that the cup is right on the grid according to the rule of thirds. Just too much negative space for me. Perhaps add a warming filter of sort to create a stronger contrast and more inviting feeling. I played with your image and if you permit me, I will upload my version to show you how my edit :)

Sure, give it a try.
Here is another attempt.

OK, here is my version. I forgot to mention that I don't see the latte part either. Anyway, I'm not saying that my version is better; I just did it for you to ponder upon :)

You edited the title, didn't you? ; D

Edit: OK, maybe I screwed up!

Try #2 in vertical, with the coffee cup at the top line of the Rule of Thirds and the shadow falling, as in an i.

You missed out on a nice pun

You're not seeing a latte interest in this image?

I'm a rule of thirds guy. Constantly urging people to learn it and use it (of course there are times to break it too).

But your second image (with the strong shadow to the right but cup dead center) and the next image you posted (with the cup only half visible on the left edge or even the second one in that batch with the cup on the left 1/3 line) are two perfect examples of static and dynamic feelings created by the 'thirds' rule.

Do you feel the difference the cropping makes in the gut feeling? It stands out like a sore thumb to me.

Would you be ok with me using them on a blog post on my site about the rule of 1/3s? (I'm at planet5D.com)
