A Good Game

It's already been said, but I think that the focus here should have been on the game. Right now, the focus is on the woman's back. That aspect of the photo has nothing to do with the decision or the making of the decision, so it is rather unimportant at this point.
There were many shots similar to this in the challenge, so maybe not the most original idea for the challenge, but I do think that it shows decisions very nicely. Especially with the current set up on the board. He has 2 ways to go, and either could lead to the capture of his piece.
Lighting seems a bit dark. I would like to have seen more details in the entire photo. The lighting on her shirt and arm are good, but even her head is way too dark. The lighting on the game is dark and also the area behind the game and son is dark as well.
In the Darkness in the upper middle of the picture, there is a bright object. Looks like maybe an action figure?? It's distracting.
Overall neat idea, but suffers greatly from the DOF chosen and lighting.
