Would have like more DOF

The black and white checkerboard is indeed a classic and I think this shot has potential. I like the marble, it's certainly different from the glass and wooden chess pieces that are fairly popular. The reflections in both the checks and the pieces are interesting. I find the section of door a little distracting and think a plain white background may have helped more. I also dont see where the focus is in the image as they all look a little out of focus, or else the image is just generally fairly soft.

I think you need a larger DoF for this.

Cool idea. I think you could have maximized on the reflections more. The focus seems a little soft, maybe a little further out or a closer focus could have improved this. But still a good shot at an intriguing angle.

Such a great idea and an awesome perspective, but not in focus.

Good composition and lighting I think. But I'd prefer the focus on the forground most pawn. 7.

Ooh, if only we could see more of those reflections on the chess board and less of the uninteresting door! Good luck 5
