The word focus was just made up, and i used the "O" as an focus point because everybody would have used the "F".i just got a new camera, the Canon 350D 8Mp (a.k.a. the Rebel-Xt?) wich i really like, so i hope to submit more photos in the near future, this site is really cool i enjoy it very much, Greetings from Holland

I'm sorry, but, this photo does not depict boredom to me. That aside, I like your picture. Nice contrast.

Represents boredom? That game can get intense!

nice work,,,maybe a little out of focus at very beginning, good use DOF....7

You appear to be missing two tiles--with "e" and "d" you'd get 3 more points and a 50 point bonus for playing a seven letter word. :-)

The lighting is interesting--really renders the subject well. Limited DOF seems to play to your subject, but I'm not sure why you chose the "o" over the "f". Then there's the question of what kind of "board" or "bored" you were going for..... As I love Scrabble and play it with interest, I find your image's statement puzzling.

Nice. Took me a second to "focus" on the board meaning

focus is on the wrong letter (o vs. f)

Clever! Would also work very well in the Stock Photography challenge. (Bet you're already sick of that comment!) Only quibble is the way the edge of the stand fits into the lower left corner of the frame - doesn't sit right for me.

why focus on the O and not the F allowing the eye to follow the image better? perhaps i'm missing the point you're trying to make..

not too bored looking

Yes and more people on here need to do just that.
