What is wrong with a nice plastic board? Also plastic board is a regulation for USCF chess tournament.
Single light source is what kind of lights!

I always wonder why you have that plastic chessboard. If you're such a chess fanatic, why don't you have a nice wooden chessboard? :)

I guess I wonder why you chose to take pictures of the exact same thing for almost every challenge... It's interesting..

Single light source?
11/13/2007 05:48:57 PM
11/13/2007 04:28:25 PM
I see at least 3 light sources here...
11/13/2007 03:10:24 PM
More than one light source
11/13/2007 12:14:47 PM
2 candles is a SINGLE light source???
11/13/2007 11:22:46 AM
I'm guessing the "single" source is candlelight, but I'd bet that there are two candles will turn many DPCers off. But regardless of that, the pieces are a bit blurry for my tastes.

Use a single, artificial light source to dramatically light the subject of your choice. There's more than "single".
11/12/2007 11:34:10 PM
Looks like two lights to me.
11/12/2007 09:29:00 PM
I'm afraid I see two light sources here. There's quite a bit of visible camera shake on the left side as well.
11/12/2007 03:59:16 PM
LOL, whiterook.. mate it says SINGLE light source.. you have two.. only you could do this man.. love it.
11/12/2007 09:35:16 AM
single light???
11/11/2007 08:58:19 PM
It is not a single, there are two. Also, looks out of focus.

After a Scholar's Mate, are we, Stephen? P-QKt4. The Kotrc-Mieses Gambit.

Of course, the challenge called for a single light source. You do know there's two candles on the table, right?

edit: Now that I think about it, there is just one SOURCE of light...there's simply two of them.

edit II: So I bumped your score up.
11/10/2007 09:03:29 PM
single light source means 1 candle not 2 nice shot though
11/10/2007 02:32:45 AM
Ooops, two light souurces in your picture, and one to the right of it. Apart from that, it is far from sharp (1)
11/10/2007 12:26:06 AM
One too many light sources for a single light source challenge, by my count...
11/09/2007 12:22:59 PM
TWO single light sources?
11/09/2007 12:00:27 AM
single light... i see two.... In terms of the photo itself you might want to think about adjusting the white balance (currently photo is yellow-tungsten cast), and increasing the shutter speed or using a tripod (there is motion blur esp on the left side and a general lack of sharpness all over). Hope that helps.

Single light source. SINGLE
11/08/2007 10:58:29 AM
Surely these are multiple light sources!
11/08/2007 08:54:25 AM
Unfortunately, this is OOF and features two light sources
11/08/2007 12:24:45 AM
I thought this was a single light source project!
11/07/2007 06:57:20 PM
Rules call for "a single, artificial light source." You have TWO. DNMC.
11/07/2007 09:28:20 AM
Use a single, artificial light source to dramatically light the subject of your choice.
11/07/2007 07:15:22 AM
I guess this would be a DOUBLE light source.
11/07/2007 06:34:23 AM
11/07/2007 06:30:29 AM
I'm afraid this doesn't meet the challenge - it should be a SINGLE light source - I can see two. In addition there appears to be camera shake. You need a tripod for this kind of low light shot.

sorry :-(
