Hi,

Great shot, there is not much I can tell you to help you.
Yes, maybe if the reflections in the first “marble” where a bit less pronounced it would have done a bit better, but that is nitpicking.
I like the subject, like the composition and the DOF.
Sorry for not being helpful at all, but at least you know I enjoyed your photo.

Keep up the good work.

Looking forward to your next entry

Peter

Great composition. Love the DOF and leading line through the shot. Also like the blue colour of the stones and background.

Lovely simple composition and set up. I love a good game of Pente. You have six in a row, one more than an obvious win!

Indeed imparts a serene impression. Like the faded background and the deep foreground.

Nice Colors If that is a wood grain table underneath i would have tried to bring out the lines in the wood a bit more or remove them completely. But thats just me.

IT'S A SHAME ABOUT THE REFLECTIONS.
MAYBE PUTTING A CLOTH BEHIND YOU WHEN YOU TOOK THE PICTURE?
NICE DEPTH OF FIELD AND COLORS.
