i would have voted higher if the queen's shadow was darker than the rest of the peices, and was in better focus, as its the point of your shot according to the title.

I think you would've been better off showing the sahdow of the rook as well.

I like this one more and more. The chess pieces are nice, and I like the warm glow of light on them. I wish you'd got the king in focus, too, but I know the DOF is often limited when doing these kind of macro shots. Also like that the shadows are obviously not the same pieces and don't match up one by one.

Nice shot! I wish the Knight was turne a little more to show its nice profile... good work! - jmsetzler

Interesting idea (I'm a chess fan too). I wonder if you experimented with creating a harder shadow -- maybe closer to the chess board? How would this look if the shadows were darker and more menacing?

Touch on the dark side, perhaps more contrast needed. Interesting though.

Nice concept. Would have scored higher for me if there was a bit more color to compliment the bronze (tinted light or wall color maybe?)....or maybe as a black and white? Could also be more focus on the King. I wish we had re-do's so I could see this again after you re-worked it based on input.

It took me a moment to understand the significance of the title. NIcely done!

Cleaver title, Focus seems a little soft.

You are right, she is in the shadows, and so am I when it come to this picture

Nice idea. Good use of light and shadows along with dramatic style chess pieces

I like the angle of composition on this one. It is a nice setup that works well with the title. It might work better using a higher f-stop to keep things in focus. As it is, the viewer's attention is drawn to the knight in the foreground. Of course, that does lead next to the queen's shadow, so maybe not.

Could have been a bit sharper in the foreground. Pallette is a little uninteresting.

Makes you look twice - nice.

points since it was one of my original ideas ;-)

I like the forboding shadows here. This image implies to me that there is inevitable doom coming to the dark side. I think, however, the angle of the Knight could be stronger...perhaps pointing more towards the right?
