Sweet I see that now thanks!

Whiterook rules the board! Even though one whiterook has been "suspended" and sits out along the edge for awhile, the other triumphantly guards the lower corner of DPC. Congrats on another beautiful Brown! You're the master!

Queen to E4 protecting the bishop?

This appeals to me on so many levels, nice one White Rook!

Perfectly grainy and slightly out-of-focus with some over-exposure going on. Subjects well-centered and nice crop between the lower-right and upper-left. Whiterook to Black Bishop. I don't score lower then 4 - sorry. So, in your behalf, I won't score - only comment - good luck in your endeavors.

A bit blurry and for me the grain doesn't add a positive effect.

I'm sorry to say but this is terrible... The colors are faded and unmatched, it is out of focus and grainy, etc. Just thought you might want a comment.

This image is too grainy, but I'm sure you have heard that comment several times already. Otherwise it would be improved with a solid wall as a background, the door is distracting. Keep working and your images will improve!

I might've cropped the bottom of the pic just a little so that you couldn't see under the table. Also looks a little grainy, IMO...

A good concept, but I think if you would have taken the shot at the level of the pieces it would have been more a dramatic shot. The photo is a little to grainy.

Not QxQ or NxP Mate. The correct move is Rf5

I know you want it.

whiterook!

white is very close to mate... I would move R to f5. That will give the king an escape route and protect the black Queen. The white Queen must keep defending f1 or trade Queens. (10)

Well, this is either WhiteRook, or one of the growing minions of WhiteRook impersonators.

Interesting old feel to this. Looks like it was a little underexposed and the composition needs a little work. Too many things to look at all at once.

hmmmm..... seems familiar
