I love this idea. I think the candle enhances the photo so much!

Cute idea. Even better if you had put the light behind the gargoyle on the right (it's an eye magnet).

Very creative. Would not kibitz at all with these players. Good image. Bumping up.

Neat idea. Would've wished for a little more sharpness. I also find the moving piece idea very cool, although its not noticable a lot. Not too fond of the composition tho, as i find its a bit lost by the light emanating from the candle. 6

Excellent use of long exposure. If you made gargoyles, you are entitled to a lot of extra credit. A 7, as I do not understand the title and am unsure of credit for gargoyle creation.

This was one of my personal favorites..it is bizarre, well photographed. I like the way you photographed the chess pieces, with some just barely visible..lighting effect with candle gives an eerie mood, love the way you put the back of one gargolye on right of frame...9

ooh, i dig it! great imagination. great execution. great concept!! the background is a tad distracting and a tighter crop on the right might help the composition. keep up this style though, i'm a fan.
