I think it's better, but it's not really what I meant - I might have not expressed myself clearly. I would have liked to see the same highlights you have on the other coffee beans (because of the back lighting, I guess) on those front beans. Look at those beans on the left side of the image, and how the highlights really give them a very specific texture - that's what I meant. But I admit I don't know if it would be possible to throw such light into those front beans with the cup in the way... anyway, your new version is, for my taste, much better than having those front beans dark in the shade.
No worries. In my mind, it works like this because it goes from darkness to light as you go up the composition. In other words...groggy...coffee....awakening....like that. Obviously, if I have to explain it, I didn't get it right!
