This has nice focus and crispness and contrast; but I am nauseated by the composition and its busy element. This does not convey rest in any sense; this conveys the concept of "finality" and "end of conflict" but not truly rest...

I'd like a bit more contrast for separation of items.

Photo could definitely do with more tonal contrast. Composition feels very chaotic to me. The pipe, glass and foreground chess pieces all seem to blend into each other, which lessens the impact of the shot. More could have been made of the refraction in the glass. Background needs to be more black. You need to find a way of avoiding the glare on the glass and pipe. Nice idea though... 5

tonal range could be improved in post processing. too gray. needs blacker blacks and brighter whites.

Much too cluttered (for my tastes) to be restful though it does convey hobbies/ pastimes. Interesting reflection of board within glass. Seems very soft, and not in a way that enhances the image (for me).

Interesting idea for the challenge. The focus seems a little off though.

The chaos on the board is good. The pipe and brandy would look better beside the board, where they would be if this was real game. The pipe would at least be in an ashtray? Lighting is pretty good, maybe a little softer to preserve some texture in the highlight on the pipe and chess pieces and cut the glare off the glass.

This shot is a bit washed out. Could have used more contrast.

I like the reflections in the glass, good use of B/W.

Would like to see more contrast in this image. Sort of "gray". Nice concept and good setup and lighting.
