Nice. There are some good touches here - I like the coffee cup at the edge of the counter - and it's seldom you see a pulled back camera used to this sort of effect in a DS/Poser render. The pic's lines lead us to look at her, pulling down from upper left to lower right. I'd like to have seen her picked out in the lighting a little more, and the shadows are a little off for the indoor environment to me, but maybe that's a nitpick.

Glad you like the composition, I'll post my layout screenshot in the Golden Rules topic tonight (I used Rule of Thirds, but I kept an eye on the counter's lines). With the position of the coffee cup I was trying to indicate that it'd been put down carelessly as she picked up the text message, thanks for noticing! The lights are the same rig I used in this pic, meant to look like diner lighting - worked better there, I'm not sure why.

Hmmm. Maybe it's the angle? I can see its necessity given the camera position but the ceiling seems weirdly high for where the shadows fall in the more recent one.
