the focus seems to be out across the whole picture.

I don't see any action here, I have no problem with chess being a sport, but having no action happening bothers me, and I don't feel that it really makes it in the challenge. I like your composition though and the fact you didn't just shoot it straight on you put it diagonally into the shot.

Maybe the beginning of the analysis or teaching of war ....

Chess a sport? Well, it's certainly a competitive activity, though I'm not sure if I'd call it a sport. The colours are generally good and the choice of perspective is interesting. There a bit of a problem with unwanted reflections, especially in the lower left area.

For me this picture is outstanding! very good! Just a small suggestion though: I feel that if you moved one pawn (for example the white pawn in front of the King) forward one space, it would have been a better "action" shot effect than just having the game in its basic set up.

i'm not buying chess as a sport

No action. Not to much of it seems to be in focus to me either. More light or a tigher crop may have helped.

Don't really see much action in this. Exposure is a bit high for the white pieces (note the bottom of the knight)

I always considered chess a game, but anyway... I like the lighting, it looks like it's coming through textured glass. Nice. The overall image seems kind of jaggy, especially around the white pieces in the foreground.

good concept... exposure needs a little help.. the hot spots on the white pieces are avoidable :)
