I entered this for the Life challenge. What I don't believe anyone noticed was this was *Check*. Someone on the silver team was going to be sacrificed for the king. The Knight had all the power -- but no one saw that. I thought that would have impact. No one thought about it...

Great choice of chess pieces, they come out really well in this shot.

Made me think of some old geezer in a movie saying "Son, life is like a game of chess, gotta play it well and make the right moves, or else you will end up loosing" ;-)

Maybe having all pieces in focus would improve the shot?

An interesting interpretation of life... nicely captured shot. The extreme tones have been captured well although I wonder if the curves could have been adjusted to bring out a tad more detail in the knight. Great lighting, very moody and atmospheric. The composition works very well here. I like the graininess of the picture. I really can't stand that drop-shadow border though, totally unnecessary. 9

i like it
more texture on the knight
different title maybe
life is full of choices - something like that would make me think differently about it
life is how you play the game....

Very good analogy! but why the b&w? Maybe you can focus on the king. him is to protect!
