Challenge: Your Final Entry (December 21, 2012) (Expert Editing)
Date: Dec 10, 2012
Date Uploaded: Dec 10, 2012

Hmmm, we'll see how this goes. A bit strange, not great compositing skills, lots of things I can see wrong, lots of things I wanted to do but don't have the skills... but it's only my third go at 'expert editing' so even though you guys don't know that, I hope you cut me some slack!

Clever. The "game's over" idea is carried out well. Voted earlier. Top five.

Ohhh, so that is what this life thing is. An intergallatic game.

pretty good photoshop and nice idea, it doesnt quite work for me the right different in the two main figures are to contrasting in clarity, the globe could probably have had the base removed and the figures on the chess board dont convey to me what i think your trying to convey but nice attempt

Yeah, that's probably how everyone pictures it. ;-)

Wonderful! Reminds me of the Chris de Burgh song "Spanish Train", specifically these lyrics:

"And far away in some recess
The Lord and the Devil are now playing chess,
The Devil still cheats and wins more souls,
And as for the Lord, well, he's just doing his best..."

All I can say is "wow"! Your picture evokes such emotion and contains all sorts of symbolism. Wow!,
